The Renault Juvaquatre is a small family car / compact car automobile produced by the French manufacturer Renault between 1937 and 1953. It was available in both sedan and station wagon body styles; later models of the station wagon (from 1956 on) were known as the Renault Dauphinoise.
The Juvaquatre was originally conceived in 1936 by Louis Renault as a small, affordable car designed to fit in the Renault range below the existing more upmarket models such as the Primaquatre or Celtaquatre. The company was focused on creating new customers who would not otherwise buy Renaults, and on appealing to the new class of lower-income consumer created by changing labor conditions and the rise of the Popular Front in France in the 1930s. The Juvaquatre was heavily inspired by the German Opel Olympia, a car which Louis Renault had been impressed by during a 1935 visit to Berlin.
