The Arkana seen during testing is bigger than SUVs like the India-spec Duster and Captur. However, due to the coupe-like styling, it looks short in height. If we talk about the exterior of the Arkana, then the front DRL and tail-lamps are quite attractive. The design of the headlamps, grille and tail lamps is similar to the Megane hatchback from Renault.
