Renault Espace Gets SUV-Styled Replacement
"The Espace is a respected vehicle. It is one Renault you'd likely see on a driveway alongside a Volkswagen or a Mercedes but we've let it live for too long," van den Acker told Automotive News.
Scheduled to debut as a concept car at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September, the new Espace will reportedly take most of its design cues from the Scenic XMOD crossover unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
"The design is not as brutal as today's cars. They becoming very military, which might be okay for the Evoque or Range Rover but it's maybe not the direction we are going," Renault’s concept car director, Axel Breun, added.
The Renault Espace was introduced in 1984. Still on sale, the fourth-generation MPV received its last facelift almost a year ago.
