Korean division gives its take on the Russian-market Renault Arkana ahead of a 2020 on-sale date.
Renault Samsung, the French brand's Korean-market subsidiary, has revealed the XM3 Inspire concept for the 2019 Seoul motor show this week.
Essentially a rebadged version of the Renault Arkana revealed in prototype form in Moscow last year, the XM3 Inspire is a small crossover coupe that will go on sale in South Korea in the first half of 2020.
According to the company, the concept "embodies a new era in Renault Samsung Motors design".
Compared to the Arkana revealed in Moscow, the XM3 Inspire gets orange accents on the lower sections of the bumpers and side sills, while the 19-inch alloy wheels sport a slightly different design. Other subtle changes include the Renault Samsung badges, and skid plate-style elements at both ends.
Like the Russian vehicle, there's no images of the interior, either. We'd say the cabin should something like the new Clio's.
The production version of the XM3 will be built at the company's Busan facility, forming part of Renault Samsung's 'Drive to the Future' plan which targets 5 million sales per annum in South Korea by 2022.
