Renault Triber vs Hyundai Venue: Specification Comparison
The Renault Triber made its global debut in India in June 2019, and it is likely to launch in August. While Renault is yet to open the Triber’s bookings, the carmaker has already revealed its specifications. In this report, we compare the Triber’s exterior dimensions and engine specifications with those of the Hyundai Venue.
While the Venue won’t be a direct rival to the Triber, it is expected that the base-spec Venue will be in the same price range as the top-spec Triber. Since the Triber is a sub-4m seven seater vehicle, it doesn’t have many direct rivals. The Venue is a five-seater sub-compact SUV that rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon.
Dimensions Comparison: Triber’s long wheelbase should be its USP!
The Renault Triber is not the longer and wider car in this comparison, but it is taller than the Venue. It remains to be seen which of the two cars is more spacious, but the Venue could be the one that may seat three in relatively more comfort since it is the wider of the two.
Triber’s speciality lies in its long wheelbase, which may free up more room in the Triber’s cabin compared to the Venue. Triber has the bigger boot of the two cars and given that multiple seating configurations are also possible, it should be the more utilitarian car of the two.
Powertrain comparison: Seven seat Triber’s 1.0-litre engine raises some questions
There are two petrol engine options available with the Venue -- 1.2-litre, naturally-aspirated unit and 1.0-litre, turbocharged. The turbo-petrol engine is the one that is not available in the base variant, and it is also more expensive than the 1.2-litre unit in the S variant. Therefore, this comparison should ideally be between the Venue’s 1.2-litre unit and the Triber’s 1.0-litre engine.
Between these engines, the Venue’s 1.2-litre unit is more powerful. But it is not available with an automatic transmission. Triber’s 1.0-litre engine will be available with both manual and automatic transmission options, however, it remains to be seen if it is adequately powerful to haul the car with seven passengers on board.
Should you wait for the Triber or buy the Venue?
If space, utility and style are the key attributes that you look for in your next car then it will be worth waiting for the Triber and taking a decision when you see both the cars in person. The Venue would win hands down if features, style and performance is what you want.
