Renault Arkana

Russian prices suggest it will be a hector, rival Harrier if launched in India.

Arkana is an SUV-type crossover with a coupe-like roofline and height. Seems like a BMW X4 mini.

  • Russia, followed by Korea, will be the first market to get Arkana.
  • The Duster B0 platform is based on a reworked version.
  • It is longer and wider than a Jeep Compass than the Duster and Captur.
  • Shares its second-genre Duster petrol engine.

If launched in India, he could compete with MG Hector and Tata Harrier.

In its production for the Russian market, Renault has shown that the Arkana crossover is scheduled to commence in later 2019. The Arkana is based on a revised B0 version which supports SUVs such as Renault Duster and Captur in India. But it’s larger than these two SUVs. Here is a comparison between Arkana’s dimensions and some of the small and medium-sized SUVs in India. The Arkana, though not as large as the Harrier or Hector, is longer and wider than the Jeep Compass. It isn’t too tall, because the roof slopes dramatically as it gets to the back, such as in a cut because of its unusual body style. The Arkana boot always stands out slightly like the BMW X4.

As the Arkana is based on the platform of the Duster, the front-wheel-drive version has a high ground clearance of 208mm. The Arkana all-around motor drive rides with 205 mm as high as the Duster in India. There are also important SUV traits in the Indian market, which is important for size and riding height.

A discussion about the exterior design, and apart from the copper-like backdrop of the Arkana. The DRLs at the front extending from and down the headlamps, such as the recent Renault models Clio and Koleos sold abroad. From 2018, Renault managed to transform many of Arkana’s external elements into the production model. Inside the Russia-spec Arkana is furnished with a whole-black cabin and a simple dashboard design similar to the Duster second-genre, which is still coming to India (although it also has an option for a beiger-black theme). The system has the option of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and features an 8-inch tacky screen entertainment system (a size larger than Duster).
