The Renault Arkana Is the Crossover For The People

Well, it's finally happened. The mass market is finally going to be treated to a coupe-crossover vehicle, and it comes in the form of the Renault Arkana. For now it's just a show car and details are scarce, but Renault has indicated that they intend to release it for the Russian market in 2019. As a group, Renault has taken one-third of the market share in Russia, which makes it a very potent place to launch their latest and greatest. 

The Arkana is slated to be a C-Segment vehicle, with ties to other SUVs within the Renault range albeit with that signature swooping roofline that defines a coupe crossover. It aims to provide the balance between the elegance of a sedan and the sturdiness of an SUV - in other words, a more stylish alternative to a wagon with a higher ride height. The Arkana will be manufactured and sold in Asia after its debut in Russia, and is a key part of Renault's 2022 target to increase sales to 5 million units.
