The Espace is a great car to drive, my car is finished in dark pearlescent blue with alloys and gas discharge head-lamps, for an MPV this car looks mean.
The rear seats tend to rattle when unoccupied.
The fuzzy logic Automatic Gearbox can be a bit indecisive and to kick down you really do have to floor it.
Fuel consumption is very poor, motorway journeys with the car set at 70 MPH on cruise control return around 25 MPG and around town average 18 MPG.
This car performs like a hot hatch, the 3.0 litre 24v engine has the ability to beat most people away from lights with handling and brakes to match.
The three sunroof set up gives the car a light and airy interior and the sophisticated electronic climate control ensures that you don't get hot around the collar.
The interior is very tasteful and the front seats are very comfortable although electric adjustment would be nice.
Good sound system with remote control on the steering column and a hand held remote control for passenger use.
