Renault Espace

In 1997, the third generation Renault Espace was launched, which lasted until 2002. Although it retained the basic concept of its predecessor, the support frame was reinforced in the new model, which increased the weight of the car itself, so entry-level engines were rather weak. In the third generation of the Escape, the engine was positioned transversely, resulting in greater cabin space and visibility.

The standard came with five seats, and for an additional fee you could buy a very rare seven-seater with a trunk of only 275 liters. Since 1997, the Grand Espace has been available, which is 27 centimeters longer, so the boot volume has been increased to 520 liters. With the seats folded, the volume of the trunk increases to 3000 liters.Renault Espace
