Renault India Teases With Arkana Poster For #movember

Renault India posted an exciting teaser on its social media handles recently. The company shared an image of the Arkana SUV with the text ‘We’re ready. Here’s your cue to book yourself in for a check-up.’

The post in relation to the #movember event that raises awareness on Men’s physical and mental health hints at the possible arrival of Arkana in India. Renault Arkana was launched first in Russia back in 2019.

Arkana comes with a wheelbase of 2,721 mm and a ground clearance of 208 mm making it appropriate for the Indian roads.

The five-seater SUV is underpinned by the CMF-B modular platform which is also the anticipated platform upon which the next generations of the Duster and Nissan Kicks will be based.

The interior of the Arkana SUV is dark themed and comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. In addition, there is also a 9.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

It also has a 360-degree parking camera, Bose audio system, ambient colours and other remarkable features.

Should the Renault Arkana be launched in India, it will mostly arrive with the same 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol engine that also does duty on the Renault Duster and Nissan Kicks sold here. The engine puts out a maximum power output of 154 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The transmission option with this engine option is only a CVT automatic gearbox.

With the Russian ex-showroom prices in mind, the SUV can be expected to be priced well above ₹15 lakh in India.
