AMBITIOUS

MIX

After inventing the MPV with Espace, and popularizing the compact MPV with Scénic, Renault unveiled a new concept, which would be the first Coupespace. It was called Avantime.

DRIVING

CREATIVITY

Designed by Thierry Metroz at the Renault design centre and produced at Matra in Romorantin, Avantime first took the form of an innovative concept car, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999. The standard version was produced starting in 2001. Renault Avantime combined the characteristics of a coupe and an MPV.

ALL ABOUT

ESPACE

Avantime was developed from the Espace platform, from which it took around half of its parts. The model was available in two finishes: Dynamique and Privilège (with the latter also offering an Exception Pack as an option, for more upholstery colour choices). In its two finishes, leather seats with built-in seatbelt were offered.
