Expert review

The head-turning Renault Arkana (2021-) has a lot going for it. It’s the first ever SUV-coupé from the French brand, and its striking looks and body shape make it stand out from the mid-size SUV crowd. It promises to be practical despite its angled coupé body, and we know it’s safe thanks to its Euro NCAP rating. Is it really sporty, spacious and easy to live with at the same time? We went to the UK launch of the new Renault Arkana to find out.
