This spacious and elegant minivan is a combination of style and practicality that comes in either a five- or seven-seater.

Details are still scant but Renault reveals that the interior has modular properties for versatile configuration and fluid lines for pleasing aesthetics.

There’s a floating center console in the ‘occupant-friendly’ cabin that according to Renault has been given ‘meticulous attention’ to ensure the highest standard of design and build.

No less than Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault Group, will be present to unveil the Espace on October 2, 2014.

A digital presentation package combining video and 3D elements will provide Internet users with an immersive experience as they discover the new Espace's interior and exterior designs.

Unfortunately, there are no plans to sell the Espace in right hand drive markets.
