Renault has revealed details of its subtly updated Espace and Grand Espace range. The revised people mover has been treated to a set of LED daytime running lights, new headlights and gloss black trim, while on the inside, the MPV gets Renault’s latest Carminat TomTom sat-nav.
Under the bonnet, the top-selling 2.0-litre dCi 150 diesel engine benefits from reduced-friction internals and new ratios for the gearbox, which combine to cut the carbon dioxide emissions from 188g/km to 170g/km.
The Espace and larger Grand Espace range consists of one trim level, called Dynamique TomTom. Both models are available with a 2.0-litre dCi 150 diesel, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, or a 2.0-litre dCi 175 diesel with an automatic transmission.
The seven-seater Espace starts at £24,495 for the manual model and £26,995 for the auto, and Grand Espace models cost on an extra £1,500. The newcomer is available to order from the 8th November, with first deliveries in January 2011.
Options include an opening tailgate window for £320, a 2.46-square-metre panoramic roof for £1,300 and a rear-seat DVD system for £1,500.
