Yeah, I'm not the hugest fan either - I do like the rims (a little large for this project), and I LOVE the blacked out accent pieces all around the vehicle. If you had a smaller rim, less of a drop, I think you could find a money spot!

I don't like the look of lowered cars. Any cars. Sorry.

A lot of people lower their cars, but the look just doesn't work for me.

It looks as though the car will have serious trouble turning without ripping the wheel flares off. If you plan to get the sport model and decide to opt against the steering wheel then this option would be great! I recommend buying this in San Francisco and driving it only one way ... East on Rt 80. When you get to NY get a fork lift to pick it up and turn it around so you can head back. :)

^ This.
I personally like vehicles which sit me up higher.

But I am sure there is a market for it somewhere.

I like the look of it slightly hunkered down on its suspension to take care of the wheel gap but I'm just not a fan of the dramatically lowered "slammed" vehicle.

I like a suspension that improved handling (slight drop) not ruins it for aesthetics.

I like rally racing, and I could see the Renegade converted into a rally car. Not my cup of tea, but I think it looks pretty good in that sort of configuration.

It could work, but I think that the pictures that you posted of the Renegade so lowered that the tops of the tires are not visible looks ridiculous. I also find it strange when people have off-road vehicles and want to lower them. Forget a hill or boulder, you will barely be able to get over a good size speed bump.

It doesn't have to be of-road vehicles, it can be regular cars. I can see maybe someplace like California where the weather is for the most part sunny and dry. But here in NYC I've seen quite a few cars lowered so much and some with front and rear aftermarket spoilers/body kits in all sorts of weather even in snow. They hold up or slow down traffic since they have to go real slow over bumps, potholes in the city. I've seen one Honda with its front ripped completely off since they went right into one of those huge metal plates that covered a hole in the ground. SMH

If you start with the more sporty Sport UV and do a mild drop it looks great. This CX-5 looks perfect since it gets rid of the ridiculous wheel well gap on a vehicle that will never go off road anyhow.

What are your thoughts of a lowered renegade? I made some images to show you some examples.
Although I don't enjoy the tuck of the first three renders personally. The idea of a lowered renegade, while being controversial, can be appealing. The renegade is already controversial being tagged as a "not real jeep" and "too feminine" so why not try to express yourself with it and maybe create a new style for the car completely in the process? As long as we keep in mind that everybody makes their cars the way they want them we may find something interesting about a car we found "dumb" before.
