The Jeep Renegade is barely a few months old, but somehow, a special design concept has found itself halfway around the world at the Beijing Auto Show . This is the Renegade Zi You Xia, a new concept that Jeep created specifically to highlight the Renegade’s sophisticated side.
It’s quite appropriate that Jeep nicknamed this concept ZI You Xia, which means "rebel" when translated to English. Even more so with all the China -inspired details the baby Jeep received to cater to its host market.
For one, the Warm Chocolate Gray with a contrasting Dark Anodized Bronze colors of the Renegade Zi You Xia were inspired by the colors of the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. The latter, in particular, you can clearly see used on the grille throats, front fog lamp bezels, rear lower fascia, skidplate, taillight insert bezel and badging.
To serve as a third shade of the exterior, a Dark Charcoal paint color was used on the roof panel, grille surrounds and door mirror caps of the Renegade Zi You Xia, something Jeep describes as creating harmonious accents throughout the body to cultivate a more premium appearance for the otherwise clunky-looking crossover .
Given how new the Renegade actually is as a model, it’s hard to gauge just how well it’s going to be received in the Chinese market. We’ve gotta give credit to Jeep for preempting sales with this concept study of the Renegade. Chances are, a lot more Chinese customers will be drawn towards Jeep’s newest model now that they know what a Renegade can look like under the best of circumstances.
