The Triber has become so popular that Renault has increased the ex-showroom price of its RXZ variant by Rs. 4,000 after Diwali. However, the prices of the other 3 variants remain unchanged.
The Renault Triber’s top trim RXZ just got more expensive. The French carmaker has updated the increased price of the new MPV on its official website. It now costs Rs. 6.53 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) compared to the launch price of Rs. 6.49 lakh. An increase of Rs. 4,000. However, the prices of the other variants - RXE, RXL and RXT, remain unchanged. The dealers are yet to receive an official word from the manufacturer and are accepting bookings at Rs. 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom). So, if you hurry, you might still get the car at the launch price.
This festive season, a lot of you bought new vehicles. It appears the Renault Triber received very good demand as well. The top variant is perhaps the most popular among buyers given its attractive design, long list of features, flexible seating for 7 and a mouth-watering price to top it all. Renault has the cut the right corners with this MPV as even in its top variant. For example, the Triber doesn’t come with alloy wheels - a feature you can get even at a later stage during ownership. Or ISOFIX child seat mounts - a feature barely a handful of car owners use.
Meanwhile, the Renault Triber offers other enticing features that put it head and shoulders above the rest of the cars in its price range. Even if you don’t want a 7-seater, it’s worth noting that the Renault Triber offers great features and space compared to the other 5-seater hatchbacks in its price range. It is the most affordable car with sliding and reclining second-row seats. To make the rear-seat experience sweeter, there are rear AC vents as well. It also has a massive 2636mm wheelbase liberating plenty of knee room for the second-row occupants. Even with its second-row seats upright, it offers humongous 625 litres of boot space, making it perfect for those who have to frequently make trips to the airport and railway station.
Some notable exclusions are front and rear armrests, steering-mounted controls and power-folding outside mirrors.
The Renault Triber uses the same 1.0-litre engine as that of the Renault Kwid, but in a different tune. In the Triber, the engine delivers more power and torque, and that extra torque comes in the lower rev range as well to help it haul 7 occupants.
On the powertrain side, the Renault Triber could use a more powerful engine to help it close gaps in traffic when carrying a full load. An automatic transmission is also missing but will come at a later stage.
