The Renault Monasix (Type RY) was an compact car or small family car automobile manufactured between 1927 to 1932 by Renault.

The car was considered a commercial failure mainly because the engine was too small for the car's length and weight, which often led to problems in keeping the car under control. Renault ended production of the car in 1932. With its 1,476 cc displacement, the engine was one of the smallest six cylinder engines available at the time.

Starting in 1928, the "Compagnie Générale des voitures à Paris", the main Paris taxi company, purchased a large number of the cars and painted them in the same shade of green as that used for the city's buses: 5,000 taxi versions were made, the last of which were used in Paris until 1962.

In competition, the Monasix was raced in the Morocco Rally in 1928.

The Monastella version was an upgraded version of Monasix with better trim.

Production ended in 1932 and the car was replaced by the Renault Monaquatre.
