Renault Espace is now a crossover with a hybrid system

The novelty has many similarities with the previously presented Renault AUSTRAL.

Just today, the official image of the new Renault Espace was published. In the sixth generation, the car has changed from a minivan to a mid-size crossover. The novelty is built on the CMF-CD architecture. The car will be powered by an E-Tech hybrid system based on a 1.3-liter petrol turbo engine. The choice of customers will be offered versions with five and seven-seat interior.

Appearance Renault Espace

Despite the fact that the new Renault Espace has changed the body, the car has retained the family design features. The front end is crowned by a large grille with vertical slats. Daytime running lights received a pattern already familiar from other models of the brand. The front bumper, with pronounced cheekbones, received a contrasting insert with three air intakes.

The body profile is notable for a set of stampings and a contour frame made of unpainted plastic. The stern is distinguished by a small spoiler and the original shape of the rear lights. Alloy wheels with unique patterns will be available in 19" or 20" sizes.

Customers will be offered a 5-seater or 7-seater cabin layout. In the first case, the luggage compartment is 159 liters, and in the second 777 liters. If you fold the rear seats, the volume will increase to 1818 liters.
