Renault Design will unveil Be Bop SUV and Be Bop Sport at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show. Two interpretations of the compact MPV theme, one is an all-terrain SUV and the other a sporting model under the Renaultsport brand. Be Bop and Be Bop combine rounded forms with structured lines for greater aerodynamic efficiency. Exceptional visibility and unique brightness characterise the cabin space, which can be configured in multiple ways to best suit occupants. The interior features numerous innovations, while the ergonomic Touch Design controls are intuitive.
Be Bop Sport 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.
The two rear-hinged doors open to reveal an original and elegant interior. The eye is drawn to a central arch to which the seats are anchored. This frees up floor space to create an unprecedented sensation of spaciousness. This arch also forms a link between front and rear occupants to reinforce the interior’s friendly spirit. Two side arches stretch the length of the doors for passengers to rest their arms. The polished aluminium gearlever rises over the central arch, which houses all the other main controls such as heating, air-conditioning, navigation and music. A chrome-finish clock sits at the end of the arch in full view of both passenger and driver.
