The Renault R-Space is a concept car designed by Renault for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show and is a similar size to the production Renault Scenic. It was designed by Renault's design chief Laurens Van den Acker and has handclap suicide doors that reveal a large single opening with no B-pillar.
The R-Space is powered by a 900cc turbo three-cylinder and mated to a twin-clutch gearbox. The engine develops 107 bhp (80 kW; 108 PS) and 160 N·m (118 lb·ft) of torque and features direct-injection and stop start technology and produces just 95g/km of CO2 and averages 76mpg. Top speed is 124 miles (199.6 km) and 0-62 mph takes 11 seconds. The body boasts a low 0.28 drag coefficient.
As a family orientated MPV, the interior incorporated innovative features such as a floating dashboard design and a rear cabin that has been designed for children with motorised cubes that can change into a number of shapes such as a booster seat and a table.
According to the Autofacíl magazine of Spain, the car will be released in late 2012, as a successor to the Renault Modus.[dated info]
