Renault’s next generation Espace will be priced between £24,495 and £28,495 for the Grand Espace when it goes on sale in January 2011.
The new Espace now comes with LED technology and a built-in Carminat TomTom live real-time satellite navigation system.
The Espace’s engine range has also been modified following the introduction of Euro V legislation. The two-litre dCi diesel is available in a choice of two power outputs: dCi 150 and dCi 175, the latter mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The combined cycle CO2 emissions of the core dCi 150 engine has been reduced by 18g/km from 188g/km to 170g/km.
Options include an opening tailgate window for £320, bi-xenon directional headlights at £650 and a DVD system with two 16.9-inch screens integrated into the rear of the front headrests for £1,500.
Customers can also specify an electronic panoramic sunroof for £1,300 or an Initiale Lux pack for £3,500 on the top-of-the-range Grand Espace dCi 175 Auto FAP which features a multi-functional TunePoint for portable music players, Carminat TomTom western Europe mapping, metallic paint, front parking sensors and full leather upholstery.
