Two years later, the modernized Renault Arkana will arrive on the European marketOctober 30, 2019
Renault can expand its model line in Europe by bringing there the new Renault Arkana from Russia, which was released there earlier this year.
According to Kassai Kupai, executive vice president of product and program planning at Groupe Renault, the compact coupe-crossover should arrive on the European market in two years (in the year 2021).
The European model, unlike the one sold in Russia, should receive some updates, including the RS Line package, which should be equipped with other design features. On the other hand, according to one French publication, the center console should be seriously modified to provide simplified access to the multimedia system and a more natural capture of the gear selector in the gearbox.
It is expected that the line of power structures can also be reviewed. Most likely, a 1.6-liter gasoline engine developing 114 horsepower and paired with a five-speed manual gearbox, which is offered on the Russian market, will be replaced by a 1.3-liter TCe, which produces 150 horsepower with an X-Tronic transmission CVT, as well as other added aggregates.
It is worth noting that the level of equipment of the current Renault Arkana is very decent. Inside, there is an 8-inch touchscreen display of a multimedia system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as high-quality sound from the Bose premium audio system, ambient lighting, climate control and several security systems, such as all-round cameras, curtains and spot monitoring.
If Renault Arkana nevertheless appears on the European market, then it will certainly take a place between the new subcompact Captur and compact Kadjar.
I would like to recall an interesting situation when Trump invented that Renault is still engaged in deliveries to the USA and called them “Renalt”. At one of the meetings, he made many gross errors.
