But Everything Turned Out To Be Not So Bad

Renault Arkana is my second car after Mercedes E200 W211. Before buying, I realized that there would be a lot of questions for Renault after Merce, but not everything turned out to be so scary. I drove the first thousand, I didn’t regret it during the running-in of the car, and now I can give an objective assessment.

The new Arkana has a stylish look, a beautiful body with smooth front bumper rolls. I chose white, the paintwork is very decent, there is no way to check the galvanizing (you can’t beat the door), although the plant promised, but there is also good quality anti-corrosion protection.

The head optics with LED headlights are much better than Mercedes Xenon, the beam gives a crisp white but pleasant light. The lighting from the factory is set up perfectly, it clearly illuminates the side of the road, and does not dazzle oncoming people. Steel wheels are stylized as hubcaps, and this gives the car even more solidity – good design.

The Drive + city package contains all the necessary equipment and a number of nice features. The salon looks presentable – decent lining material, moderately dense (but it is clear that it is cheap) plastic, it is pleasant to touch. Until nothing creaks, does not fall off.

There is enough space in the cabin, and it is especially pleasing that if you put a child in a child seat, he does not reach with his feet to the back of the front seat. Large trunk, will fit almost everything, but the high loading height makes it inconvenient to stack heavy objects. Seats do not fold out into a flat floor.

An average power motor, far from a rocket – 1.6 liters at 114 hp, is quite enough for the city, but after Merce with its 184 forces on the highway you will not accelerate much – 140 km / h is going steadily, but I’m afraid that’s all power, and did not even try to overtake.

What makes you think and sometimes swear a lot is the variator. When stopped at D after 1-2 seconds, it gives a push from the bottom. I carried out diagnostics – the unit is normal, but in the city in a traffic jam such a ride is very annoying. I don’t understand yet what the matter is – the officials said that this is such a feature of this variator …

At the same time, the chassis is super, the suspensions are perfectly tuned, the “speed bumps” pass like on a flat track. On a primer, it drives comfortably, without breakdowns, very smoothly. Acceleration on the highway is also impressive, accelerating quickly.

In general, the crossover is worth its money, but if I knew about such a variator’s work, I would hardly have bought it, honestly. Although there is an option to delve into the ECU and reset the settings, this is already at the first MOT.
