French automaker Renault has teased their upcoming model, the Renault Arkana that will make its debut at the 2018 Moscow International Motor Show starting from 29th August.
The name ‘Arkana’ is derived from the Latin word ‘arcanum’, which means secret. Renault claims that the concept of Arkana is “associated with mystery, attractiveness and blazing spirit”.
As per the spyshots & the images teased so far, the Arkana bears a sportier face that takes design cues from the company’s latest design language, a coupé-like roofline, C-shaped DRLs that feed out of the main headlights and a pronounced rear boot lip.
The Arkana will be launched in Russia first, followed by China, Brazil and South Korea. For markets such as Russia, the Arkana will be based on the same M0 platform as the Captur sold there, though for the Chinese market, it is more likely to be underpinned by Renault’s CMF-B platform. While it is also expected that the Arkana coupe-SUV will be sold under the Dacia brand, targeting other markets.
