LONDON: Renault is continuing to expand its model range with the all-new Arkana SUV set to go on sale across the UK and Europe from 2021.
The mid-sized compact SUV offers a standout exterior design with a strong coupé silhouette, increased refinement, along with the latest in advanced hybrid technology and connectivity.
Combining SUV proportions with the sloping roofline of a coupé, 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 all-new Clio and all-new Captur, bolstering Renault’s existing SUV line-up, which currently consists of the Captur and Kadjar.
The cabin of the 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 be available with a selection of electrified powertrains featuring hybrid technology which 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.
The 1.3-litre TCe 140 petrol engine produces 260Nm of torque from 1,600rpm.
The Arkana will be available to order in the UK from July 2021, with first customer deliveries expected in September 2021.
