RENAULT 21....

The Renault 21, a large family car produced by Renault between 1986 and 1994.

The Renault 21 Sedan was launched in early 1986 as the successor to the successful Renault 18, and was followed a little later by the seven-seater station wagon, the R21 Nevada, marketed as the Savanna in the UK.

Unusually, the Renault 21 was offered with disparate engine configurations. The 1.7-litre version featured an 'east-west' (transversely) mounted engine, but Renault had no gearbox suitable for a more powerful transverse engine: accordingly, faster versions featured longitudinally mounted (north south) engines. The two versions featured (barely perceptibly) different wheel bases: the engines were all relatively compact four-cylinder units and the engine bay was large enough to accept either configuration without reducing passenger space. However, at a time when production technologies were relatively inflexible, the need to assemble differently configured engine bays on a single production line, along with the supplementary inventory requirements imposed both on Renault and on the dealership network compromised the Renault 21's profitability.
