Compare with other cars in the Large MPV category

The Espace was the best of the large MPVs tested in June 1999. It gave a well rounded performance and achieved the safest frontal impact of the group. Even so, the frontal-impact test was repeated at Renault's expense to assess improved frontal belts and safety systems fitted to latest Espaces. A result is that the child restraints used in the tests are different because Renault changed the ones it recommends. However, the Espace did not do well in protecting pedestrians, so much so that Euro NCAP felt the vehicle was not designed with that job in mind.
