Renault has revealed that it would launch the Triber on 28 August 2019. The carmaker will start taking pre-launch bookings for the car from 17 August 2019. Prospective buyers will be able to book the Triber online as well as on any of Renault’s dealerships. The carmaker has set a Rs 11,000 booking amount for the Triber.
The Triber, which is a sub-4m vehicle, will be able to seat up to seven people, including the driver. For that, the car has three rows of seats. However, what is special about the Triber is that it has modular seating, so it can be easily converted into a two seater, four seater, five seater, six seater or a seven seater. The third row of the car has two seats that can be removed completely.
The Triber will be available with the option of a petrol engine only. The engine will be a 1.0-litre unit and will develop a maximum power of 72PS. Triber’s specifications are listed in the table below:
Specification of Triber:
1739 mm (without door mirrors)
1643 mm (without roof rails)

5 Speed Manual Transmission

The Triber is expected to be priced in the Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh range. As a result, it should rival conventional hatchbacks like the Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios on the price chart. Considering that it would be a sub-4m car and a seven seater as well, the Datsun Go+ will be a natural rival, though it is priced lower than our expected price range of the Triber. We have compared the Triber with the Swift (here), Venue (here) and Go+ (here) for you to find out just how big or small the car and where does it gain advantage over other cars in this space.
