Renault has lifted the wraps of its new Espace – which will make its public debut at the Paris motor show early next month. This time however, things are slightly different at camp Renault as the Espace will return in the form of a crossover.

Prior to this model, the Espace has always been marketed as an MPV but the new version appears to ditch its rather boxy appearance in exchange for a more fluid style, which closely resembles the Initiale Paris concept.

Performance figures are still anyone’s guess at this point but we do know that the interior will feature a touchscreen display unit on the centre console – as pictured in an earlier spyshot. Five and seven-seater versions of the Espace will be offered.
