RENAULT HAS HINTED at the design of the next Espace MPV by unveiling the Initiale Paris concept at Frankfurt.

The 4.85m long car previews the look of the crucial new Espace, as Renault attempts to regain favour in the large family car segment; currently dominated by high-end luxury cars like the Range Rover and Mercedes ML or bargain buses with seven or eight seats like the Hyundai i800 and Ford Galaxy.

The Initiale Paris is the sixth and final concept to be revealed after new Renault design boss Laurens van den Acker decided to revamp the company’s design philosophy. It features the prominent Renault badge, wide front grille and scuplted side panels as seen on the new Clio, as well as LED lights, rear-hinged ‘suicide doors’ and a glasshouse inspired by a feather.

There is no word as yet on when a production version of the new Espace will go on sale but expect to see it sometime towards the end of 2014.
