Barely Three Years In, Renault Is Already Developing The Next-Gen Renault Arkana
Renault unveiled the current generation Arkana back in 2019 for the Russian market and then in 2020 for the European market. Despite still being very young, it looks like Renault is already preparing a successor for it.
Our spy photographers caught the first prototype testing in Germany, and according to the driver, we are looking at the successor for the Russian version of the Arkana.
2019 Renault Arkana
In a surprising turn of events, French manufacturer Renault revealed an all-new coupe SUV called the Arkana. Shown at the Moscow Auto Show, the Renault Arkana is the first coupe-inspired SUV to sit at a lower price point compared to any of its premium competition. For now, the Renault Arkana is only a show car, but one really close to production. Renault will introduce it for the Russian market in 2019, with the launch on CIS markets some time later. The car could be introduced on the western markets as well (maybe not in the same guise and with the same name) and while we cannot expect it in the U.S. (Renault isn’t available here at all), I would not be surprised if the Arkana architecture ends up supporting some kind of similar Nissan coupe SUV. The Renault press release is clear - the Arkana “heralds a new vehicle with global ambitions.” Last time I checked, global means all around the world.
Renault’s Design Chief Laurens van den Acker did hint that Renault is considering bringing the Arkana to Europe. China, Latin America, and South Korea are already confirmed destinations for the new car.
