History of the Renault Monaquatre
Renault produced the Monaquatre, a compact family automobile, between 1931 and 1936. It was powered by a water-cooled, 4 cylinder engine and had a traditional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive arrangement. The Monaquatre, which debuted in October 1931, was designed similarly to the Renault Primaquatre big family automobile, with which it shared a 2,650 mm wheelbase. The updated Type YN1 variant debuted at the 1932 Paris Motor Show, with the engine capacity raised from 1289 cc to 1463 cc.
The type YN2 debuted at the Paris Motor Show in October 1933, with a modified bonnet and a somewhat higher sloped radiator grill. The YN2 was a transitional model, with the company already deciding to replace the old vehicles' excessively vertical rear ends with "aérodynamique" bodywork with elegantly sloping tails. By this time, the Monaquatre was available in seven distinct body styles, including four-door berlines with four or six side windows, and, a two-door two-seat cabriolet.
The YN2 was only in production for 3 months before the newer, more aerodynamic Type YN3 emerged at the start of 1934, originally with only two body designs to select from. Manufacturing of the final variant, the Type YN4, halted in September 1935, as did production of the 1936 Type YN4. The Renault Celtaquatre took the place of the Monaquatre.
