Last year, when Renault introduced the concept of SUV to Arkana, it became clear that it was not too far in the show. A few weeks ago, the Samsung XM3 Inspire turned to it as it will be sold in South Korea. And today we have the finished car – Renault Arkana in a serial version.
And with a surprisingly high chassis, which implies decent off-road capabilities. According to Automotive News, Arkana will share a platform with Dacia Duster, so all-wheel drive can be built.
Neither the elegance nor the clear height of Arcana.
In the cab we see a number of elements from Renault and Dacia, of course, as expected. Equipped with touchscreen, parking sensors, heated seats – basically everything that is common today. The seats accommodate five people and the suitcase has 508 liters of basic volume.
The cabin is simple and clear, so that knowledge is known.
Under the hood, among other things, we can find a dozen thirteen, which the Renault-Nissan alliance has developed with Daimler and which we experienced, for example, in Nissan Qashqai. Offering 150 hp, it will be available with an X-Tronic stepless transmission and an all-wheel drive system.
The Russian market will have a petrol engine with a volume of 1.6 liters and 115 horsepower. This is important because Arkana is produced in Moscow and is the first to be sold on the Russian market.
It already has its price there – the introductory edition One with front-wheel drive costs 1,419,990 rubles, or about 509,000 crowns. According to the information available, Arkana also comes to other markets. However, if the Czech Republic is among them, it is still not known.
