Since the Espace was produced over almost 20 years, there were obviously many different models, and its almost impossible to list them all. However, the number of engine-versions used is somewhat easier to list. I have made this table, but please don't take the content for the ultimate truth, as I can easily have mixed things up, or forgotten things. The table is here to give you an overview. If you spot mistakes, please mail me, so I can fix it.

... and there are 4 bucket-seats and amble space for the luggage - definately the fastest family-car around - you need to strap the luggage down a fair bit however, as the car will pull up to 2g in cornering. :-)
In general there were 3 levels, entry, middle and top-spec: RN, RT and RXE - later given names like
"initiale", "expression" and the top-spec "privilege". There was also a "The Race", which commemorated the
round-the-globe sailboat race, and thus had a stylized worldmap in the fabric of the seats. (sorry, "the Race"
has unfortunately nothing to do with Le Mans etc, - but we can of course always claim that anyway :-) )
As the versions imported into different countries furthermore differ, the modifications mentioned below are obviously only guidelines - I haven't got a complete overview.
