A Century of Cars: 77. Solido 1991 Renault Espace
A heavily revised Espace was launched in
1991, adopting the Renault family look, to replace the Talbot–themed
styling of the original. This was essentially a re-skin of the
original car, with a new dashboard and other interior improvements.
The chassis was unchanged.
In an episode of Top Gear, then–presenter Jeremy Clarkson referred to this generation as 'probably the best of the MPVs'. However, he went on to say 'but that's like saying, Oh good, I've got syphilis, the best of the sexually transmitted diseases!'.
