Frankfurt Auto Show: Renault Kangoo ConceptS

Further commodification of leisure time is the theme of Renault's Kangoo concept, a joint creation with Rollerblade. Apparently some car buyers still roll inline, though 'blading hasn't been at the vanguard of recreation since day-glo wristbands were still an acceptable fashion choice. Nonetheless, the square, kandy kolored econowagon — powered by a 1.5-liter diesel burner producing 105 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque — does have rear-facing seats, assumedly for on-scene footwear swaps. We hear that's the next big thing.
