Renault India has officially unveiled its much awaited and speculated compact MPV model – Triber. The brand new Renault Triber is a 7-seater sub-4 meter compact MPV model and is the second MPV offering in India from the house of the French automaker, after the Lodgy. The new Triber is likely to hit the car market of India in the second half of this year, probably at the onset of the Indian festive season.
In terms of market positioning, the new Renault Triber is pretty unique as it fits in between the compact MPV segment and the compact hatchback segment. The Triber is smaller than the highly popular Maruti Ertiga compact MPV but is larger than the mid-size Maruti Swift hatchback and all other similar hatchback models in the segment. As the Triber is also expected to be priced highly aggressively, it is expected to eat into some demands of the hatchback models.
