Renault Arkana: the SUV coupe officially unveiled

Unveiled last year in the form of a concept car, the first SUV Coupé of the Diamond is concretized by revealing its final finery for the Russian market.

Renault officially unveils the new Arkana: a compact SUV coupe with 1.3 TCe engine, all-wheel drive, and all the technology of the brand. This attractive and unknown SUV coupe was announced as a future model for Russia, but today we finally know it in its final version and ready to reach the market.

There is no doubt that the new Renault Arkana would fit in all markets, and the brand does not hide it either. In its first statement, Renault says that the model will go on sale in Russia and this summer, but also confirms its desire to "break the rules and become the first generalist manufacturer to offer an international SUV coupe. 

With 4.54 meters in length, the Renault Arkana is positioned somewhat above but very close to the current Kadjar in dimensions, but with a sportier body and more distinctive design. Manufactured in Moscow, and although the brand does not confirm it, some French media suggest that it is developed under the same platform as the Dacia Duster.

The final version of the Renault Arkana does not differ much from the concept seen a year ago, betting on a dynamic and elegant image with which it wants to position itself in the market as the most affordable alternative to such prestigious models as the Mercedes GLC Coupé or the BMW X6. The SUV will be offered with a range of 7 different body colors, with 3 trim levels and equipped as standard with 17-inch wheels.
