Renault has revealed the series production version of its Arkana, which was first shown at the Moscow International Motor Show last August in show-car form. The coupe SUV, which shares its sloping roofline-look with the likes of the BMW X4 and X6 as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and GLE Coupe, will begin sales in Russia this summer.

Virtually everything seen on the display car in Moscow has made the transition into the final product. Some minor cosmetic changes are evident – at the front, there are new fog lamps and the central grille loses the chrome finish in its accents, and the shiny bits for the door outline have also been dialled back.

It’s a similar story at the back, with new graphics for the tail lamps and the inclusion of reflectors on the lower part of the bumper assembly. The production version also gets a rather prominent rearward roof-mounted antenna.

Otherwise, everything has been retained shape-wise, from the sloping roof line and very high waistline to the wide, expressive bumper. Likewise, the wheel design, but in smaller form – the units on the show car were 19-inch units, but the production Arkana will ride on a 17-inch variation.

The C-segment Arkana, which measures in at 4,543 mm long, 2,047 mm wide and 1,576 mm tall, will be powered by a 1.4 litre turbocharged TCe 150 engine, which is also seen on the likes of the Captur S-Edition. Offering 150 hp and 250 Nm in the way of output, the unit will be paired with an X-Tronic CVT in this application. Also present is four-wheel drive in the form of an All Mode 4×4-i system.

Renault says the Arkana isn’t just a pretty face but is able to rough it out, touting its 208 mm ground clearance and high angles of attack and departure (18° and 25° respectively) as suitable off-road capable credentials. The automaker’s Multi-Sense tech offers three driving modes, Eco, Sport and My sense, the last offering customisable parameters.

The cabin features a chunky dashboard, which houses an eight-inch touchscreen as the showpiece. Kit includes an Renault Easy Link multimedia system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Yandex Auto support as well as a Bose audio system. Other features include heated steering wheel/front seats and a choice of eight ambient lighting colours.

The Arkana provides 508 litres of boot space, but this can be expanded to 1,333 litres with the rear seats folded. As for colours and trim options, seven exterior shades are available, and the Arkana will be offered in three trim levels.

The automaker says that Russia won’t be the only market in which it will offer a C-segment coupe SUV – another variation of the Arkana will go on sale in Korea in the first half of 2020. The Korean Arkana was previewed by the XM3 Inspire show car that was unveiled at the Seoul Motor Show in March. To be produced by Renault Samsung Motors at its Busan plant, the model will be exclusive to the Korean market.
