Renault Arkana: lower price and new look for the coupe SUV

RENAULT ARKANA. Arrived on the French market in 2021, the Renault Arkana offered its mid-career restyling. If the transformations of the SUV remain quite minimal, the diamond brand has revised its price list downwards. Here is all the information you need to know.

[Mis à jour le 24 juillet 2023 à 15h56] After seducing Asia and then Russia, the Renault Arkana, produced in South Korea under the Renault Samsung Motors label and called XM3 on the neighboring continent, arrived in France in the spring of 2021. The success of the SUV coupé has spread to western Europe and the diamond brand has decided to give it a little update this July. A minimal makeover, however marked by the creation of the new Esprit Alpine finish, now a symbol of the high-end Renault models. The good news of this restyling is above all the lower price of the crossover, the entry-level of which now costs 31,000 euros. Find all the information about the Renault Arkana below.

The new features of the restyled Renault Arkana

As indicated above, Renault has not revolutionized the contours of its crossover from Asia. A few alterations to the exterior, with in particular the adoption of the brand’s new identity, and the simplification of the finishes, now three in number: Evolution, Techno and Esprit Alpine.

  • The Renault logo redesigned two years ago and renamed “Nouvel’R” takes place in the center of the grille, at the heart of a black band that connects the front headlights of the SUV coupé. The grille of the radiator grille also adopts this new brand signature, with, as the manufacturer explains to us, the “repetition of diamonds in an unstructured way, echoing the central diamond.” The chrome of the grille, for its part, has disappeared.
  • At the back, move around there is nothing to see, or almost. The new Renault logo, in black chrome, appears in the center of the tailgate and matches the name ARKANA written in capital letters. The rear lights are now slightly smoked.
  • As on the brand’s latest updated models, the Renault Arkana now comes in three finishes. The Evolution finish marks the entry-level of the crossover, followed by the Techno finish and finally the new Esprit Alpine finish. The latter, which combines both the chic and sporty spirit of the manufacturer, stands out in particular with specific 19-inch rims, a new rear spoiler, an aluminum pedal set and heated seats decorated with blue stitching and the Alpine logo.
  • The new Renault Arkana still offers seven colors to its customers, but a new color has come to chase another. Nocturne Blue, inaugurated on the Megane E-Tech, has joined Solid White, Pearl White, Metal Grey, Zanzibar Blue and Flame Red in the catalogue. The Orange Valencia will no longer be marketed.

What engines on the restyled Renault Arkana?

No changes under the hood. The Renault Arkana retains its two mild hybrid petrol engines with a power of 140 and 160 horsepower respectively. Ditto for the full hybrid, 145 horsepower, the third choice of engine in the catalog which represents 63% of crossover sales in the first half of 2023.

What is the price of the restyled Renault Arkana?

Renault took advantage of the makeover of its SUV coupe to play its price list. Sold at the start of the year at 32,500 euros in its Evolution finish with its 140 hp light hybridization engine, the same version of the Arkana, but restyled, will be… cheaper. The manufacturer has chosen to revise its prices downwards, and this entry-level model now costs 31,000 euros, or a “discount” of 1,500 euros. The same finish with the E-Tech engine increases the price of the crossover to 33,000 euros. You have to add 1,600 euros if you prefer to go upmarket with the Techno finish (32,600 and 34,600 euros). Finally, to get your hands on the Arkana Esprit Alpine, the minimum bet is 35,800 euros with the 160 horsepower mild hybrid engine. With the full hybrid engine, the sports version of the crossover climbs to 37,600 euros.

When will the restyled Renault Arkana be released?

Still produced at the Busan plant in South Korea, this restyled Arkana has been available to order since July. Its arrival in dealerships is expected in the fall, possibly in November.

Photos of the Renault Arkana (2021)

The design of the Renault Arkana is clearly that of a coupé SUV. The car aims to compete with German models, such as the BMW X6 where the Mercedes GLE Coupe. The front is aligned with the design of current Renaults, with C-shaped LED lights as on the Megane or the Talisman. We are dealing here with a crossover, a cross between a sedan, a coupe and an SUV.
