Renault Arkana concept
This “concept’ is pretty much the production model that will go on sale in Europe next year.
With maybe smaller wheels and larger mirrors…
It looks both OK and weird to me.
The “fake coupe” shape is fine, but the car just sits way too high. It almost looks ridiculous.
I guess this is the first of many. So far, it seems that only BMW and Mercedes have offered that “SUV Coupe” design.
Now that affordable brands are jumping on the idea, these things will be everywhere…
I wonder who will be the first affordable brand in the US to offer one…
Let’s not forget the real ancestor to all these raised up AWD cars: The AMC Eagle.
AMC started fitting all their “compact” models, sedans wagons and coupes, with an AWD system in the late 70’s.
Almost 40 years later, they still looks great today.
And, it IS a real coupe.
