Everything, there are no more changes in the exterior of the updated minivan. On the other hand, the exterior of the Renault Espace does not require adjustments. The model looks fresh, bright and stylish, and presented just over 3 years ago. Over this period, Renault Espace 5 generation managed to gain a foothold in the fourth place in the class by the number of sales in Europe with the result of almost 27 thousand copies, letting ahead only the leader of Ford S-Max and a couple of co-platformers – the German Volkswagen Sharan and the Spanish Seat Alhambra .

In the stylish cabin of the minivan there are more innovations than on the body. However, rather than innovation, rather modernized equipment in the form of an updated multimedia center R-Link 2 with 8.7-inch color touch screen (support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, rear view camera) and a wider list of options.

After the renovation, the interior of the Renault Espace can boast LED illumination of some elements in the cabin (sun visors, glovebox and box between the front seats). The driver’s and front passenger’s seats for extra charge can now be equipped with ventilation.

The more powerful engine allows the minivan to pick up the first hundred in just 7.6 seconds (the minivan with the old engine was accelerated from 0 to 100 km / h for 1 second longer), the fuel consumption in the combined mode of motion is 6.8 liters.
