Renault Espace details:

New Renault Espace has been lightly restyled with a shift to more elegant, modern lines. The new layout of the grille and bumper softens the front, which also features new innovative layout halogen or Bi-xenon headlamps. The vehicle is also available with an innovation never previously seen in this segment: Bi-xenon cornering lights which are auxillary with the Privilège and Initiale levels. A further distinctive sign of New Renault Espace Initiale is the chrome trim that runs between the fog lamps to underline the classic elegance of the new layout.

New Renault Espace's back lights have also evolved. When lit, they are reminiscent of Leds and recall the lines of the front grille and headlamps.

New Renault Espace's dynamic looks are reinforced by its new 16- and 17-inch Primastella wheels, while further refinement is offered by the layout of the new 17-inch Novastella (privilège level), 17-inch Aida (initiale) and auxillary 18-inch Aria alloy wheels. Two new body colors have been added - Lumière Blue and Sahara Beige (exclusive to the Initiale level) - which takes the total number of body colors available for New Renault Espace to 13.
