Renault is planning to storm the Paris auto show with at least six world debuts, including the Megane hatch and coupe, Laguna coupe, Ondelios concept, a mystery concept, and the recently announced Kangoo Be Bop. 

Drawing inspiration from the original Kangoo concept which debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the car aims to appeal to today’s active urban lifestyle. At less than four meters in length, the Be Bop is 38cm shorter than its five door sibling and features numerous unique styling touches to set it apart. The standard two-tone paint scheme demands attention, while the increased ground clearance and protective moldings try to convey a sense of adventure. Among the other updates are black headlamp masks, new bumpers, and 16” alloy wheels.

One of the more interesting features is the forward sliding convertible roof panel at the rear of the Be Bop, which helps to create an open air experience. The interior stays slightly more traditional and features individual seating for four. In a first for the Kangoo range, the Be Bop will be available with a Carminat Bluetooth CD satellite navigation system with a 7 inch display.

Power options include two diesels that produce 85hp and 105hp, and a 1.6L petrol engine with 105hp.

If different is your thing, and the Be Bop certainly is, look for it to hit UK showrooms in spring of 2009.
