Introducing the All-New Renault Arkana
Sleek and sturdy, the All-New Arkana is Renault's first-ever Coupé SUV. Featuring the classic aspects of an SUV, such as high ground clearance, combined with the iconic, sloping roofline of a coupé; the Arkana provides exceptional practicality and space, making it the ideal family car.
Refinement, advanced hybrid technology and connectivity complement each other and will make the Arkara an appealing option for many drivers looking for a spacious, compact SUV with a modern and premium impression.
Design and Practicality
Don't let the elegant and sophisticated exterior fool you, the All-New Arkana has a strikingly bold design, but the practicality of this vehicle has not been compromised in the slightest. 513 litres of boot space is at your disposal and it benefits from a raised floor and rear seats that can be folded entirely flat.
Expect superior design features if you opt for the premium R.S. Line model, which adds various enhancements derived from Renault Sport's DNA and the New Megane R.S..
Rest assured though, that Renault haven't skimped out on the entry-model as the entire Arkana range boasts All-LED headlights, quality chrome interior details and a leather-finished gear lever. Moving up the models sees the introduction of a leather steering wheel as well as other sportier exterior and interior design elements.
Technology and Safety
Consistent with other Renault models, the Arkana is well equipped in terms of modern technology and safety equipment. Depending on the model specification a digital dashboard features either a 4.2, 7, or 10-inch Driver Information Display along with either a 7-inch horizontal or 9.3-inch portrait Easy Link touchscreen infotainment display.
Providing added convenience and safety for the driver are various Advanced Driver Assistance Systems available on the All-New Arkana:
- Motorway & Traffic Jam Companion
- Adaptive Cruise Control (with Stop & Go)
- Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS)
- Blind Spot Warning
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keep Assist
Catering well to smartphone users, the centre console features a wireless smartphone charging system and the Renault Easy Link multimedia system is compatible with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™.
Engines and Performance
The mid-sized compact SUV will be available to order in the UK from July 2021 with a choice of two engines, the 138bhp E-Tech hybrid powertrain, also featuring in the All-New Clio E-Tech Hybrid; and the 1.3-litre TCe four-cylinder turbocharged direct injection petrol engine, with mild-hybrid technology.
Full-electric driving, with zero tailpipe emissions, can be achieved for urban driving 80% of the time with the innovative E-Tech hybrid powertrain. Combining a 1.6-litre petrol engine with a lithium-ion battery and two electric motors, the Arkana E-Tech Hybrid reduces CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by up to 40% compared to a traditional combustion engine in urban driving.
Also delivering 138bhp, the efficient TCe engine is paired with an EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission to provide engaging performance and low running costs.
