The upcoming 2019 Renault Espace is a stylish MPV that looks more like a crossover. This model now comes with a gasoline drivetrain that replaces the previous 1.6-liter engine. There is also a larger 1.8-liter unit and the rear-wheel-drive setup is standard. The engines can be slightly retuned and the amount of power is great.
The 2019 Renault Espace comes with a revolutionary exterior design and the interior is extremely modern and comfortable. Moreover, the interior is tech-rich and the driver assistance systems are on another level. If you are looking for a vehicle that isn’t that big, it doesn’t cost a fortune and provides great comfort, Renault Espace is the right choice.
2019 Renault Espace facelift
As we already wrote, the exterior design looks revolutionary. The 2019 Renault Espace was always looking like a rugged van. Now, the design is more crossover-like but with the minivan dimensions.
The front end comes with the wing upper grille and Renault’s logo in the middle of it. The LED headlights are looking upscale and generally, the front part looks sharp and with plenty of details.
To the sides, the changes are heavy. The boxy shape is gone and the sloping roof with the raked windshield looks very modern. The roofline sports soft curves and the window sill looks sharp. The rear end gets wrap-around LED taillights and the rear part looks clean and flat.
2019 Renault Espace display is similar to the Tesla Model S
The interior of the approaching 2019 Renault Espace is all-new. We must say that the cabin looks much better than the interior of the new Kadjar crossover. The steering wheel is smaller and similar to the Megane model steering wheel. A new center console is really long and it sits between the front seats. The center display is similar to the one in the Tesla Model S. The interior isn’t that aggressive and sporty, it is subtle and relaxing.
Also new is the gear shifter and the huge screen comes in handy while using the reverse camera system or even the birds-eye-view system. The materials inside the cabin are really upscale, the dash adds fake leather materials and white contrast stitching.
Moreover, fake wood surroundings are looking gorgeous, along with the additional aluminum work. Upper trims are delivering real leather and wood materials. Panoramic roof is another premium touch.
2019 Renault Espace powertrain and acceleration
The old 1.6-liter engine is gone and the new 1.8-liter unit is in the offer. This four-cylinder engine is capable of providing 252 HP and 236 lb-ft of torque. The previous 1.6-liter was producing 200 HP so this is a huge step forward for the 2019 Renault Espace.
Moreover, the new engine delivers 30 lb-ft of twist more than the previous unit. Thanks to this change, new Espace reaches from 0 to 62 mph one second faster than the current model. A 7-speed automatic transmission is standard.
2019 Renault Espace price and release date
The price of the upcoming 2019 Renault Espace is still a mystery. After all, this is almost an all-new MPV with the unique crossover-like styling. For that reason, the price will be around $30,000.
The 2019 Espace will hit the European markets in November or December of 2018. The U.S. markets could get Espace model, but not before 2020.
