THE WIND

IN

YOUR HAIR

Appearing in 1988, Renault 19 was first of all a 3-door and 5-door saloon, which would spawn a 4-door variant (known as Chamade). In 1991, Renault 19 was also offered in a cabriolet version. Renault’s big comeback. The brand’s latest cabriolets in Europe were Renault Caravelle (discontinued in 1968) and Renault 4 Plein-Air (discontinued in 1970).

IN GOOD

COMPANY

To produce Renault 19 Cabriolet, Renault used the services of a cabriolet specialist: Karmann. The process involved 3 steps: 1. Renault sent Karmann the panelling parts (pre-assembled or not) shared by the saloon; 2. Karmann gathered the parts supplied by Renault and its own specific elements; 3. All assembled elements (including the soft top and the trim) were sent to Renault for painting and assembly of mechanics and upholstery. Lots of back and forth!

OFF SKIING WITH

THE TOP DOWN

If the word cabriolet makes you think of a 2-seater car, Renault 19 Cabriolet will change your mind. This 4-seater cabriolet was truly a car to live in. With Renault 19 Cabriolet, you could even drive to the ski slopes! The back and seat cushion of the rear seat could be folded down, removed and complemented by a ski hatch.
