2013 Renault Espace


This is the latest version of the world’s most famous people carrier. The Renault Espace MPV has been given a facelift for 2013, and it’s become more dynamic and cleaner than before.

The looks are only changes at the front. New Renault Espace’s front-end styling features Renault’s new identity for even more dynamic and status-enhancing appeal.More environmentally-respectful engines for significant fuel consumption and CO2 emissions savings, plus an appreciable reduction in the ‘eco-surtax’ applicable in France. The MPV’s pioneer still stands out as the best travelling experience for seven occupants and the model continues to be perfected with the addition of even more technology, including a new reversing camera.

The Espace is the definitive MPV and Renault didn’t want to mess with it by changing too many things. Besides the cosmetic changes, the MPV also gets a refreshed interior with better materials and a large panoramic sunroof.

Details in Renault press release:

Coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox, the 130hp, 150hp and 175hp versions of the 2.0 dCi engine (M9R) emit just 150g of CO2/km* (a saving of 20g/km), equivalent to fuel consumption of 5.7 litres/100km* (down 0.8 litres/100km). The state ‘eco-surtax’ applicable in France has come down accordingly by EUR550.

Mated to automatic transmission, the same engines emit 169g of CO2/km* (a saving of 20g/km), equivalent to fuel consumption of 6.4 litres/100km* (down 0.8 litres/100km). Here again, the ‘eco-surtax’ applied by the French state has been reduced by EUR550.

The 175hp version with manual gearbox delivers the segment’s lowest CO2 emissions for its power output.

With the 2.0 dCi engine under the bonnet, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions have come down by 1.7 litres/100km and 27g/km respectively over a period of six years since this powerplant became available for Espace in 2006.

In the case of the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine (F4Rt), CO2 emissions have fallen to 198g/km* (a saving of 6g/km), equivalent to fuel consumption of 8.5 litres/100km* (down 0.3 litres/100km).

These results were achieved by the engineers’ work on:

- Evolutions to the diesel engines: introduction of ESM technology (braking and deceleration energy recovery), a variable displacement oil pump, advanced cooling management and cold loop EGR (exhaust gas recirculation).

- Chassis and running gear improvements: a three-percent improvement in CdA thanks to revised underbody shielding, plus new low rolling resistance tyres and electro-hydraulic power steering.

The MPV’s pioneer continues to be perfected

All the strengths that have helped forge Renault Espace’s success have been carried over to the latest version, including vast cabin space and a modular layout, as well as a level of comfort and visibility that all occupants will appreciate.

New Renault Espace continues to propose the large seven-seat MPV segment’s most occupant-friendly cabin, including seven real seats and a brightly lit interior thanks to a large opening sunroof.
