We can but hope and pray.

Ugly overpriced Matra vans.

The new model is due in 2010, iirc.
(Based on a Nissan?)

I did hear that they have delayed the new model. My dad has one (and has had many) so he keeps up to date with all things Espace!

I've been driving them for about 8 years and I have found the current model to be the best yet, it's fast and very maneuverable and is no trouble to drive around the centre of London out doing the Cabs.

Dare I mention that I've always liked the Avantime?.....



Thought not. :lol:

I had one for a week during the Queens Jubilee Party at the Palace, it was blue with a silver roof and I used it to take celebrities from the Royal Mews to the stage area. It looked quirky but was a good car and i have often thought about getting one because it's so rare.:)

I saw an Avanti-me today. I forgot how bogging there were.

The Val Satis are (only) used for the Cannes film festival
to ferry celebs around. Never ever seen one elsewhere.

The idea of monospacing every type of car has been overdone
by Renault.

The Espace and Scenic made sense, even the old Twingo
was a good idea. But luxury sedan and a coupe? Forgeddabotit! :rolleyes:

We used to have several that we used for Chauffeuring, they were very comfortable and had plenty of room for the back seat passenger a nice car to drive too.
