Exclusive: Next-generation Renault Espace will indeed become a crossover

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 16, 2013

All of you folks love the Renault Espace but it appears that the French manufacturer wants to change the next-generation model and it will transform it into a crossover. If yesterday it was just a rumor, this was confirmed at the Frankfurt Motor Show by Mr. Axel Breun a.k.a. Director Design of Concept & Showcar at Renault.

Talking about the Initiale Paris Concept car that was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Breun said that the new vehicle that previews the next-generation Espace shows elements borrowed from an SUV, a crossover but also from a sedan.

And it will indeed, become a crossover. In the concept form, the Initiale Paris continues Renault’s “live cycle” design strategy started by the DeZir. All the Renault concept cars are compared with a petal in the design daisy.

If the DeZir symbolizes love, the Captur Concept symbolizes explore, the R-Space family, the Frenzy work and the Twin’Z and Twin’Run concepts play, the Initiale Paris Concept symbolizes the wisdom.

According to Renault, at some point, everyone aspires to serenity, a time when they can take full advantage of life. The Initiale Paris concept car illustrates open-mindedness and the pleasures and sensations associated with a premium vehicle. “Wisdom” is the sixth petal in the strategy, unveiled at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.
