The Renault Espace is a mid-size luxury crossover (minivan in its first four generations) from Renault. Generations 1–3 were sold under the Renault brand but manufactured by Matra. The Renault Grand Espace is a long-wheelbase (LWB) version with increased rear leg room and boot size. The name "Espace" means "space" in French. The car is often considered to be the first MPV, but previous vehicles had similar designs.
In February 2012, the Espace was retired in the United Kingdom, as part of a cost–cutting plan.
