The Renault Egeus from the 2005 Frankfurt Auto show was billed as an upmarket SUV.

The Egeus concept's styling is a natural continuation of previous Renault concept cars such as the Wind and Fluence concepts. Its flowing, gentle lines have nothing of the angular styling usually associated with SUV's.

The front end features air inlets under the sculpted headlamps, and the Egeus does away with the large menacing grille common to trucks and SUV's.
The featureless bonnet flows into the rounded windscreen, which, in turn, blends seamlessly into the bubble-shaped glazed roof.

Renault has fitted the Egeus with massive 22-inch wheels, this, combined with high ground clearance give the concept car a solid planted stance.

The Egeus concept's 'Cythère Blue' body colour, 'manta ray' dashboard and the blue-tinted hues of the cabin are intended to suggest an underwater world, while the full length centre console, clad in blue-tinted leather, incorporates three generous stowage compartments in addition to the two front-door bins.

The Egeus' silver exterior side door handles are flush-fitting so as not to detract from the streamlined sides. An optical sensor detects an approaching hand and pushes the handle out a few centimetres, facilitating use.

Inside, the Egeus features four fully independent seats capable of swiveling outward and lowering to ease entry. A GPS navigation system calculates the vehicles recommended speed, this information is displayed in the speedometer dial, with its analogue and digital displays. LED diodes around the dial flash to alert drivers if they go over this speed. In off-road mode, an indicator on the instrument panel is automatically activated to show the Egeus' attitude to the horizontal and alert the driver if there is any risk of roll-over.
