"Arkasha" and her opponent were examined by key parameters, after which they were taken to the "pokatushki" on the road and in the city.
Bloggers on the AUTO PLUS YouTube channel compared Renault Arkana and Nissan Qashqai in order to understand which is better – a high-profile novelty or a proven crossover. The experts were not embarrassed that they were comparing two cars of different price categories and quality level.
Renault Arkana and Nissan Qashqai cost in Russia from 1 and 1.2 million rubles, respectively. The dimensions and clearance of these cars are similar, but the “Kashkaya” salon was liked more by bloggers, as it is more comfortable in it and it is soundly made. Experts admitted that Arkana has rich functionality, but its interior is spoiled by cheap plastic and an awkwardly installed multimedia display.
Another "Qashqai" wins the electric seat adjustment, thanks to which the driver's seat can be made as comfortable as possible. It also helps well-thought-out steering wheel height and reach.
The rear row of the Renault Arkana and Nissan Qashqai in terms of comfort and equipment are equivalent. With the trunk, the Japanese crossover surpasses the all-wheel drive version of the Arkashi by about 30 liters, but the single-wheel drive Frenchman surpasses the Qashqai by 70 liters with the trunk. In addition, Renault Arkana has no threshold in front of the floor of the Renault Arkana and Nissan Qashqai trunk, which simplifies loading / unloading of things.
On the racetrack, the 150-horsepower Renault Arkana turned out to be less dynamic and manageable in comparison with the 144-horsepower Nissan Qashqai, which is interesting, because the Arkana is a little more compact and powerful. Bloggers stated that “Qashqai” in high-speed turns is more predictable and understandable. In acceleration to "hundreds" in a straight line, Arkana and Qashqai showed results of 12.4 and 12.7, respectively.
During off-road tests, experts stated that the Renault Arkana and Nissan Qashqai crossovers are all-wheel drive and CVT are identical. In the mud, in the rain, both cars behave equally confidently. As a result, Arkana was called the normal heir to Duster.
In the city of Renault, Arkana showed an “empty” steering wheel, and the Nissan Qashqai feels more thorough, but the suspension of the “Arkana” seemed a little more comfortable for bloggers. As a result, the experts came to the conclusion that Qashqai beats the opponent as a sitikar, he is a little more comfortable, however, the appearance of Arkana is brighter than the appearance of Kashkaya.
