Renault Espace: Some technical data is leaked, will it be true?

New Renault Espace chassis long document technique

The next installment of the Renault Espace is a few days away from being official. In the gala house they are expectant because their success depends on whether they can continue with their plans for the future. It is not that it is a crucial or vitally important model, but its value is double. On the one hand, there is the fact of being the "Espace" or what is the same as the heiress of the large minivan that changed the sector and the roads of Europe at the end of the last century.

Secondly, because with it they hope to "climb a step" in order to win customers from the Bavarian premium firms. And although they are doing well with the Austral, they want to deepen their new position even more. However, it is no secret to anyone that the new generation of the Renault Espace is an Austral with a long wheelbase. But thanks to a leak, we don't know if timely or inopportune, we have been able to find out some of its technical details... Be careful...

The new generation of the Renault Espace is nothing more than the technical twin of the latest Nissan X-Trail…

Thanks to various sources we have been able to access these images. As they point out, it is instruction book that will be given to customers who get an Espace. However, a note must be made that will help us understand the magnitude of the leak. Apparently, these images correspond to the Austral manual but inside it alludes to a "long chassis" version that, coincidentally, is not yet for sale or available.

Therefore, as they say “white and in the bottle”. In fact, in one of the images we discovered that the Espace will go to 4,72 meters in length or what is equal 21 centimeters more than the Austral. Of this gain, 7 will go to the wheelbase and 14 centimeters to the rear overhang that will help improve trunk space and legroom for third-row passengers. Yes because there will be versions with 5 and 7 seats that will not be serial.

In another of the leaked photos we can see the second row of seats. Unlike the current Espace it seems, or is intuited, that we are "going backwards", since it seems that it is divided into two parts and not into three. If so, there would no longer be three individual seats, making its modularity inferior. In any case, it seems that they can slide forward in two parts as the Austral offers. All this will make the third row more suitable for children than adults.

And not only that, when they are open and in use, the capacity of the trunk will be minimal, although for now it is not known what its volume will be. Be that as it may, these are the advantages and disadvantages of share platform with the latest generation of the Nissan X-Trail. Hence, part of its mechanical range is also common, opting for massive electrification and the elimination of diesel. With everything, there are days left to clear up doubts... Patience then...
