Hybrid Renault Arcana for Europe

The model will reach the UK in the middle of next year.

The Renault Arcana presented at the 2018 Moscow Motor Show will be released in Europe. In July 2021, the model will reach the UK and will receive a design similar to the Russian version and completely new equipment.

Initially, Renault did not intend to bring the Arcana to the West, but the growing popularity of the model forced the company to make adjustments to the plans. In the UK, the Arcana will complement the Renault line-up, which currently includes two SUVs: the Kadjar and the Captur.

The European version will be based on the CMF-B platform of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, which is the base of the Clio and the Captur.

The British Arcana will be available with three hybrid petrol-based powertrains, namely a 140-hp E-Tech unit based on a 1.6-liter engine, as well as two mild hybrids with a 1.3-liter turbo engine and a 12-volt motor. Their total output is 140 hp and 150 hp.

In terms of dimensions, the European Arkana will be slightly larger than the Russian one: its length and height will be 4,568 mm and 1,571 mm, respectively. The wheelbase of the models is almost equal (the UK version has a 2,720-mm wheelbase). But the ground clearance of the Russian SUV is 18 mm higher; the British one will get a 190-mm clearance.

The interior will be equipped with a 4.2-inch, 7.0-inch or 10.2-inch digital cockpit, depending on the configuration, as well as a 7-inch or 9.3-inch infotainment system with touchscreen. The trunk volume of the hybrid Arcana will be slightly smaller: 438 L against 513 L.

In addition, in the UK, the SUV will receive a new RS Line modification, which is already available for the local Clio and Megane. It can be distinguished by special nameplates, decor, and dual exhaust pipes.
