Renault is continuing to expand its model range with the new Arkana SUV set to go on sale across Europe from 2021.
The mid-sized compact SUV promises a standout exterior design with a strong coupe silhouette, while the assertive front end gets refined details, including all-LED headlights with a C-shaped lighting signature. Renault says to expect increased refinement, along with the latest in advanced hybrid technology and connectivity.
Combining SUV proportions with the sloping roofline of a coupe, Renault claims the Arkana delivers space and practicality for the whole family in a package only slightly longer than the new Megane hatchback.
The new model will be built on the Alliance’s CMF-B modular platform which underpins the new Clio and Captur, bolstering Renault’s existing SUV line-up, which currently consists of the new Captur and Kadjar.
Renault says the cabin of the new Arkana features the latest interior finishes and design touches to ensure a premium feel and finish as well as exceptional comfort for all occupants. This is combined with one of the largest digital displays in its segment, thanks to two screens, as well as advanced connectivity systems which deliver seamless convenience and minimal distraction for the driver.
The Arkana will also be the latest model to be offered in RS Line specification, providing sportier exterior and interior design elements.
The Arkana will be available with a selection of electrified powertrains featuring hybrid technology, which the French carmaker says ensures refined and efficient performance.
The new SUV model will feature Renault’s latest full hybrid E-Tech technology, while mild-hybrid technology will be offered with the 1.3-litre four-cylinder turbocharged direct injection TCe petrol engine.
More on the Arkana closer to its arrival in Irish showrooms in September 2021. Prices will be confirmed closer to that launch time.
