Auto China 2014: Jeep Renegade Zi You Xia Concept is a Chinese rebel

Article by Andrew Christian, on April 21, 2014

After making its world debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the Jeep Renegade also came to the 2014 Beijing Motor Show as a special design concept called Zi You Xia. For those who don’t know (including us), “Zi You Xia”means rebel and the new concept car highlights a more sophisticated aspect of the Renegade’s personality.

According to Jeep, the new Renegade concept is inspited by the colors of the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing and is finished in a Warm Chocolate Gray with a contrasting Dark Anodized Bronze color that accentuates the grille throats, front fog lamp bezels, rear lower fascia, skidplate, tail lamp insert bezel and badging.

Moreover, the roof panel, grille surrounds and door mirror caps are painted a Dark Charcoal. The exterior design is completed by the unique 20-inch Dark Anodized Bronze alloy wheels.

Same theme is continued at the interior, where the Piano Black color is accompanied by grey A-pillars and headliner, while the air vents, speaker bezel, gear shifter, steering wheel bezels, cup holder and door release handles are finished in an Anodized Copper.

The interior features rich brown leather upholstery on the seats and door panels, as well as ‘ombre’ grey/black plaid fabric inserts that were inspired by the traditional menswear suiting and tailored patterns.

The roof panel, grille surrounds and door mirror caps are painted a Dark Charcoal to provide harmonious accents and a more premium appearance throughout.
