Renault has disclosed pricing details for the all-new Espace commercialized at home in France.
After making its debut at the Paris Motor Show back in October 2014, the all-new Espace is set to go on sale this spring and it will carry a starting price of €34,200 for the base Life Energy dCi 130 version equipped with a manual transmission. At the other end of the spectrum, the range-topping Initiale Paris Energy dCi 160 EDC6 costs €46,300.
Gone is the boxy MPV appearance of the previous model as Renault has replaced it with a more modern crossover silhouette. It comes with a generous array of standard equipment as even the base model has full LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, Lumière panoramic windscreen, parking sensors, one-touch function for second- and third-row seats, along with an R-LINK2 infotainment system featuring a 8.7-inch display.
Upgrade to the Zen trim level (from €37,700) and you get Renault's Multi-Sense system with four modes: eco, comfort, neutral and sport along with a fifth mode called perso which is fully customizable. Renault says each setting creates and coordinates a "specific driving emotion" thanks to a modified engine response, EDC's calibration, degree required to turn the steering wheel, engine sound, suspension setup, ambient lighting color and other factors.
Intens (from €40,800) brings an electric tailgate, head-up display, adaptive cruise control, Easy Park Assist and a Dark Brown Riviera leather upholstery.
The range-topping Initiale Paris trim (from €44,800) has larger 19-inch wheels, 12-speaker Bose surround audio system, 4Control chassis with four-wheel steering and active damping, along with a couple of Nappa leather upholsteries and 10-way adjustable heated front seats with massage function.
Engine choices include a dCi 130 turbodiesel with 130 HP & 320 Nm, a beefier dCi 160 with 160 HP & 380 Nm and a TCe 200 gasoline motor outputting 200 HP & 260 Nm. Depending on engine choice, Renault is offering a 6-speed manual, 6-speed EDC and a 7-speed EDC dual clutch automatic 'box.
