The Renault 30 – R30 short – is a vehicle of the upper middle class and was presented in the spring of 1975 at the Geneva Motor Show.
It was Renault’s first self-developed vehicle with six cylinders after the Second World War, and was produced from March 1975 to January 1984. Same design, but driven by four-cylinder engines, the Renault 20
Renault himself called the R30 in the German press as "car for a lot of traveling executives and entrepreneurs." Meant for people who drive, even without a Mercedes or BMW, did not want to give up the comforts of this vehicle class. For less well-heeled customers who a large car wanted, unveiled in the autumn of 1975 Renault 20 was provided, the same car but was, in principle, with simpler equipment and smaller engines.
The displacement of the V6 engine PRV engine jointly developed with Peugeot, and Volvo was 2664cc. Initially, there was a power of 131hp.
Initially offered only as R30 TS, he was equipped with power steering, power windows front and electromagnetic Central.

The variable boot could be expanded to more than 1500 liters volume, for legal reasons, was for the roof-high loading However, an exterior mirror on the passenger side required.
In October 1978, introduced a new flagship model of Renault 30 TX, the disposal instead of the previous carburettor version of a modern Bosch injection (K-Jetronic) and now made 143 hp.

The development of the Renault 30 began in the 1960s. In the summer of 1961, the small car Renault 4 and the beginning of 1965 was presented to the midsize sedan Renault 16. Both had an important feature: a large variability thanks to wide-opening tailgate.
By the late 1960s, the vehicle program should be complemented by a high end model with a V8 engine. However, the development was not until the early 1970s, when finally the P127 Renault 30 was created from the project. Finally, even in the face of the oil crisis in 1973/74 was allowed to drop efforts to V8 and instead developed a V6 engine by ado omitting two cylinders.
The body of the Renault 30 was built to the then most modern findings of active and passive safety that were possible for mass production. For example, he had programmed crumple zones front and rear, an elaborate chassis and side impact protection in the doors.
