New Espace - for New Appeal

The softer front styling of New Espace 2006 includes a new headlamp design that prolongs the lines of the bonnet. The slimmer bumper and simplified grille design reassert the vehicle's top-of-the-range status. The bi-Xenon cornering lights and their ability to pivot as a function of the position of the steering wheel give New Espace 2006 a unique frontal expression. From Dynamique, the foglamps come with a new chrome trim that discreetly echoes the elegance of the new styling. Two new body colours are also available, namely Tuscan Beige and Mountain Blue.

New wheel trims underpin New Espace 2006's dynamic design, while the design of the new 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels adds to its refined looks.

The form of the rear lights takes its inspiration from the vehicle's overall styling cues and contributes significantly to the harmony of the whole. Although discreet when switched off, the rear lights truly come into their own once illuminated.

For added elegance, the new trim favours dark charcoal tones for the upper part of the interior, contributing to an even greater level of perceived quality and a brighter, warmer feel. The trimming of the dashboard and centre console is in perfect harmony with the interior colour scheme. With the exception of the recent Dynamique version, all of the upholsteries are new.

The panoramic glass roof, which can be either fixed or electric, continues to stand out as the market benchmark in terms of its dimensions and comfort. Combined with an electric sliding sunblind, it protects passengers while at the same time giving the impression of travelling in the open air.

New Espace 2006… for New Standards of Excellence

New Espace 2006 is equipped with rain and light sensors, "See Me Home" lights, front and rear parking assist, a tyre pressure monitoring system, Emergency Brake Assist with ABS and ESP with understeer control. The Renault System for Restraint and Protection comprises eight airbags and three-point seatbelts complete with load limiters.

New Espace 2006 offers optimum child safety. All the rear seats can be fitted with ISOFIX attachments and Sleep Safe convertible child head restraints are available. New Espace 2006's strengthened structure ensures maximum safety and the vehicle benefits from a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.
