A true SUV coupe where sexiness comes standard

A confident and seductive SUV coupé, Arkana is a head-turning combination of elegance and confidence which merges the best of SUV lifestyle with coupé attitude.

Arkana is a design sensation, like no other. With a sloping coupé roof line, muscular shoulders, and an elevated SUV stance, Arkana doesn’t compromise on style.

I drove the signature R.S. Line in Valencia Orange demonstrator model from Trinity Renault to Yungaburra for a real test and feel of what this punchy 1.3 litre turbo sexy SUV coupé could do and it did not disappoint. You can learn more about this car on the website, click here. Anyways, first stop the Mountain View Hotel for a quick photo shoot.

There are a couple of demo models going up for sale (this test car as well) so keep an eye on this space: Demonstrator Arkanas for sale  

First up the hands-free locking and unlocking on the R.S. Line is next level. The vehicle unlocks on your approach and locks the vehicle when walking away. You just need to have the key in your pocket.

The interior is appointed with premium and sensuous finishes throughout. With mixed leather and suede upholstery, electrically adjustable, heated, and ventilated front seats and sunroof. Arkana provides a luxurious experience. The R.S. Line version adds sportiness with contrast red stitching and a gloss carbon-look dash trim.

It's a nice day to be heading up to the Atherton Tablelands with stops at Lake Barine and Yungaburra to come, before heading back down the Gillies. Don't think there is a better test-drive circuit than this one.

Arkana keeps you connected while you’re on the move with a 9.3-inch driver-focussed vertical touchscreen. The easy link system features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® as standard and, when paired with the Auditorium Sound system by Arkamys, provides a next-generation entertainment experience. Plus, with wireless smartphone charging, you’ll never have to worry about missing out on life updates while you’re on the go.

How's your mood? Drive your way in Arkana with the customisable multi-sense system. Three driving modes and 8 ambient lighting colours provide a dynamic drive to match your mood. Arkana will respond by adapting the powertrain response, engine sound, steering feel, and ambient lighting scene. With Eco, Sport, and MySense modes, you will always find the right drive for you.
