With a flat floorpan and between five and seven seats mounted on rails, the cabin can be customized to increase the number of possible seat positions to almost infinity. An integral part of the Espace design is the 'shared' dashboard, while the split air conditioning system for driver and front passenger frees a large amount of the central area.

Espace Concept welcomes passengers into a refined atmosphere where everything is soft and pleasant to the touch. No details have been overlooked. Extreme care has been used in choosing materials and perfecting fit and finish. The dashboard strip and door panels, deliberately chosen in a pale greyish-beige, confer a welcoming, restful atmosphere. The seats and armrests, upholstered in pale beige leather, and floor mats add further warmth to the cabin. By way of contrast, the lower part of the dashboard and the central information display area are a glacé chestnut colour.

The cabin recalls the world of contemporary furniture. Streamlined but warm and welcoming, it embodies a lifestyle that puts the emphasis on individual well-being. Espace Concept makes ample use of transparency and illumination, with the biggest glass sunroof on the market covering 2.16 square metres, a panoramic windscreen that extends above the roof line and a vast glazed expanse. The sunroof, which lets maximum light into the vehicle when required, can also be screened off with a blind.

Espace Concept makes no secret that it is a direct descendant of Espace styling with its one-box shape, curved sides, ample glazed area and panoramic windscreen. The vehicle does, however, also have a family link in terms of design with Avantime and Vel Satis and reflects Renault's new visual identity. Its lines are distinctive, taut and masculine. The Espace Concept design, hinting at performance and modernity, highlights Renault's determination to position its show car as a unique object with a strong personality, exuding quality and robustness.
