Renault has unveiled the production version of the Arkana, it’s new global C-segment “coupe” SUV which made its world premiere at the Moscow International Motor Show last year.
Built at Renault’s plant in Moscow, the Arkana will contribute to the worldwide expansion of Groupe Renault as part of its strategic “Drive the Future” plan.
From what we can see, the external design of the production version of the Arkana Coupé SUV differs only slightly from the concept that was shown last year.
It retains the sloping roof line, the high waistline, and also the wide, expressive bumper.
When it goes on sale later this year, the Renault Arkana Coupé SUV will be offered in 3 trim levels, all of which will be fitted with 17-inch tyres.
Inside, the Renault Arkana Coupé SUV features a central console equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen interface for the Renault Easy Link multimedia system, which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Arkana also benefits from Renault’s Multi-Sense technology which gives the driver a choice of three driving modes (Eco, Sport, My sense), 8 ambience interior colours, Bose audio system, as well as a 508-litre boot which can be expanded to 1,333 litres with the rear seats folded.
Power comes courtesy of a 1.3-litre turbocharged TCe 150 petrol engine which delivers 150 hp and 250 Nm of torque, and paired to it is an X-Tronic CVT gearbox which sends power to the wheels via a smart All Mode 4WD system.
The Arkana Coupé SUV also boasts a reinforced chassis and a ground clearance of 208 mm, complemented by angles of approach and departure of 18° and 25° respectively, which makes it quite off-road-friendly.
According to Renault, the Arkana has been put through a range of sturdiness and durability tests, including 300,000 km of trials in extreme driving conditions in order to ensure optimum comfort, regardless of the condition.
