The Renault Arkana goes for all. If this model has already seduced many customers, now it goes a step further with its Model Year. It presents a renewed range and some additional surprises will arrive…Although the Renault Austral will be one of the fundamental pillars of the diamond brand, we cannot forget other highly successful products.
An example? The Renault Arkana is a 4.56-meter-long SUV coupé with an important objective: to rival the Citroën C4 PureTech 130, Cupra Formentor 1.5 TSI, Ford Focus Active 1.0 EcoBoost MHEV, Kia Xceed 1.5 MHEV, Mazda CX-30 2.0 e -SKYACTIV G or the Toyota C-HR Hybrid.
With such competitors to face, the Renault Arkana renews its range on the occasion of the Model Year. Noteworthy is the elimination of the Intent and Zen finishes, which are replaced by the new Equilibre and Techno, while the sporty RS Line remains -for the moment- in the 1.3 TCe Mild Hybrid version. Of course, this last level disappears in the 1.6 E-TECH version, since it will benefit from the exclusive “E-TECH Engineered” as in the Renault Captur MY 2023.
The new Renault Arkana Equilibre includes six airbags, ESP with Hill Holder, lane alert, ISOFIX anchors, height-adjustable seats, automatic climate control, parking control with a camera, Full LED headlights, electric parking brake, traffic sign reader, SOS call, 17” alloy wheels, ECO mode, 7” touch screen with Smartphone integration, digital radio with USB ports, speed regulator/limiter, electric folding mirrors, light and rain sensor, autonomous braking system with pedestrian recognition, hands-free card and multifunction steering wheel in imitation leather.
The Techno finish adds cross-traffic alert, induction charger, blind spot control, darkened glass, 10.2” digital panel, photosensitive mirror, 18” wheels, automatic high beams, and navigator with a 9.3” screen. driving mode selector and mixed upholstery.
The RS Line is distinguished by elements such as assisted parking, heated electric seats, a 360º camera, ACC adaptive cruise control, a special body kit, specific wheels and logos, leather/Alcantara upholstery, and a heated steering wheel.
The Renault Arkana MY 2023 range remains unchanged and always with front axle drive. It offers the 1.3 TCe petrol engine with 140 or 160 hp, linked to the EDC double-clutch automatic transmission with seven relationships and the 12V mild hybridization system. In addition, it offers a conventional hybrid -1.6 E-TECH 145 hp- and a multimode gearbox.
Finally, we remind you of the current Renault Arkana offer for the Spanish market. The manufacturer has launched the 140 hp TCe version -as always, ECO label- for 26,965 euros, with the delivery of a vehicle in exchange and without the need for financing.
