Dacia Bigster Coupe 2025 — 2026.

Affordable relative of the Renault Arkana: first image of the Dacia Bigster Coupe 2025 — 2026.

The cross-coupe, which is planned to be released under the Romanian brand, could enter the European market in mid-2026.

For Renault Arkana, the first market was Russia: the crossover was produced and sold here from 2019 to 2022 (in the spring, the French company decided to leave the Russian market and got rid of all local assets).

In 2020, production of this model — called Samsung XM3 — was launched in South Korea.

This version (already under the familiar name Arkana) was eventually exported, including to Europe.

It is expected that the Arcana will have a more affordable alternative on the European market, while its production is planned to be launched under the “budget” Romanian brand Dacia, which belongs to the Renault Group.
