A new Limited Edition Tech Run version has also been added to the range and will be perfect for the summer months ahead of long-distance family holidays as it features as standard a DVD DivX player with two 7” screens integrated into the headrests as well as multi-functional TunePoint allowing MP3 players such as iPods to be plugged in, to keep all the family entertained.
In addition, for a limited time only, if customers buy an Espace, one free portable DVD system which includes a 7” screen, remote control, set of headphones, cigarette lighter charger, external battery, AC/DC cable, S video cable to plug TV and headrest cover to enable customers to watch the DVD in the car.
Espace not only offers practicality and comfort for families, it also comes complete with a five-star Euro NCAP rating so customers can be assured that their family is travelling in a safe vehicle. Some competitor MPVs score as low as just two stars so Espace really is the safe choice for customers.
