FuegoTurbo wrote The Renault 18 U.S. spec is rare. It's a Break version, so it was sold in the U.S. under the name AMC-Renault Sportwagon.

First one as "AMC-Renault" Sportwagon, calls for renaming more. Or simply as Renault 18 Break?

This was filmed in Canada. Was the same name used there?

Pretty sure it was "18i Sportwagon" in Canada, as opposed to "18 Break"...

Others are listed as 18i Sportwagon and it seems advertised that way too: http://www.bambootrading.com/1800/1817.jpg

looks like i missed something in my book. looks like its 1984-1986 that they were called Sportwagon but sales in NA still starting in 1981 ( wikipedia also call them Sportwagon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_18#U.S._market . to be honest, its been a while since the last one i saw ( and might be a while until the next one i'll see ). we'll keep the 18i Sportwagon then but has to be a 1981

I guess that they dropped the 18i part later, I also found an ad for "Renault Sportwagon" indeed...

They started off as "18i", then when the sedan was dropped, the wagon became "Sportwagon" in 1984.
