This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Renault Espace (03-12) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The simple layout of the dash appeals to many owners, with controls and switches hidden away, giving a clean and sophisticated look. It also acts as a deterrent to thieves as the stereo and CD autochanger are concealed from view and fully integrated.

Seats are firm, but supportive and there's plenty of room for a medium to large sized family. Legroom for the two rear seats is restricted and they're better suited to children.
