Renault Be Bop And Be Bop | Part Two

Be Bop and Be Bop are one single flowing line. The shape of the front and rear wings communicates a friendly but also powerful air. Their curve is extended at the front by a panoramic windscreen that disappears into the immense glazed roof before dropping down to form the V-shaped rear window, resulting in the signature Renault rear end.

One concept, two attitudes

With over half their bodywork parts in common, Be Bop and Be Bop nevertheless have very different personalities.

Squarely positioned on its generous 21-inch PAX System wheels, Be Bop is a sport utility vehicle intended as much for city life as off-road driving. With its 210mm ground clearance and four-wheel drive, few obstacles stand in its way. Its "blue-tinted steel" exterior includes specific elements that show this SUV means business: at the front, the radiator grille includes a more mat protection zone while the high-performance lamps incorporate blue-tinted diodes for a high-tech aura. The rear lamps are shaped like flashes of light, while the double exhaust pipe fits neatly either side of the tailgate.

Another of Be Bop's original features is the tailgate's functional and aesthetic opening system. First, an electrical motor lifts the rear window above the roof. The lower part opens downwards while a shelf automatically slides forward to house luggage and parcels.

Be Bop is a sporting compact MPV whose bright yellow bodywork is characteristic of Renaultsport vehicles. All the front-end design features are specific, with flowing lines that prove sporty handling and soft forms can go together. The radiator grille adds to its sporty personality, as does its 225bhp 2-litre turbocharged engine.
