Welcome back to Forgotten Sporty Cars at The Garage! In this space we recall an era where small, economy car-based based vehicles were sold with zippy styling. Whether there was any substance to the sizzle weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll leave for you to judge.
1982-1985 Renault Fuego
We’re on a roll with Renaults, but after TG’s last look at the GTA and today’s Fuego, it is a short run. While the GTA was built in America as a limited edition, higher performance Alliance, the Fuego took a different route. Made in France, based on the 18i sedan (sold in N.A. from ’81-’82) and 18i Sportwagon (sold from ’81-’86), the Fuego had a body all its own.
