Written by Parkers on

This Espace is the third generation of the car that started the European people-carrier phenomenon back in the mid-1980s. Always a leader, it stays ahead of the current pack, with clever use of space, slick styling, improved ride, and better driveability, plus the safest body in its class. But the current generation has built a following among middle-class families with its chic looks and aerodynamic profile.

It's not a cheap used buy, but it's worth every penny.
