Renault tries with some talent in the SUV cross with a coupe. Presented at the Moscow Motor Show and designed on a low-cost vehicle platform, 2020 Renault Arkana announces a new global vehicle.
Renault’s stubbornness in Russia could be rewarded. Having disenchanted the leaders of the French brand, this market is raising the head. Some even predict a bright future for him. Renault even estimates that it could become its first market within a few years. To give himself every chance to succeed, the builder multiplies the testimonials of affection for his motorists. This is how he takes advantage of the Moscow Motor Show to unveil the 2020 Renault Arkana, a vehicle that prefigures a new leisure vehicle in the C segment, the most dynamic.
The last baby of Laurens van den Acker and his style team installed at the Technocentre in Trappes, this new model gives in to the current tropism for SUVs with a flying flag, like a coupe. If the front panel refers to Kadjar, the treatment of the rear is inspired by that of the sedan Talisman. With a length slightly greater than 4.50 meters, this vehicle responsible for expanding the range should contribute to the growth of Renault sales and the acceleration of the internationalization of Losange. The Billancourt brand has set a goal of selling 5 million vehicles in 2022
The Russian teams of the manufacturer have largely contributed to the definition and development of this SUV scheduled priority, next year, for the Russian market. It has a four-wheel drive, very popular with Russian motorists. This technological choice has imposed the use of a Dacia Duster platform.
It should then be marketed in other parts of the world. Its commercialization in Western Europe has not been confirmed but it would be surprising that these markets do not see this coupe SUV pointing the tip of its hood.
