    Renault Triber

    Renault Triber - Strengths

    • First-in-segment modular seating arrangement offering several seating combinations
    • Very spacious interiors for 4 and respectable headroom even for third-row occupants
    • Most affordable car with a sliding and reclining second-row seats
    • Decent styling and compact footprint for a 7-seater
    • A healthy list of features like projector headlamps, 4 airbags, AC vents for all three rows, cooled storage, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, keyless entry and push-button start/stop, etc.
    • Very well priced for what it offers

    Renault Triber - Weaknesses

    • Not enough power; highway performance is expected to be barely adequate with a full load of 7 occupants and luggage
    • Missing features like electric-folding outside mirrors, front and rear armrests, steering-mounted controls
    • Automatic transmission not available
    • Long-term reliability of the 1.0-litre petrol engine is unknown

    Renault Triber - Launch

    The Renault Triber launched on August 28, 2019.

    Renault Triber - Price Range

    The Renault Triber is available with a price range that starts from Rs. 4.95 lakh and goes up to Rs. 6.53 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Renault Triber - Variants

    The Renault Triber is available in 4 variants - RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ. The Triber is not available with a diesel engine.

    Renault Triber - Engine and Transmission

    The Triber gets the Kwid's upgraded 1.0-litre engine. It makes 72PS at 6250rpm of maximum power and 96Nm of peak torque at 3500rpm. It has slightly better power and torque output than the Kwid’s 1.0-litre engine. This engine is available with a 5-speed manual transmission. Renault will probably launch it later with the 5-speed AMT automatic.

    Renault Triber - Fuel Efficiency

    The Renault Triber’s 1.0-litre petrol engine delivers a claimed fuel efficiency of 20kmpl.

    Renault Triber Features - Hits

    The Renault Triber’s feature list includes an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a fully-digital instrument cluster with a 3.5-inch multi-info display, AC vents and charging sockets for all three rows, cooled storage and keyless entry with push-button start/stop. The second-row occupants even get their own fan speed controls and the 60-40 split second-row seats can independently slide and recline as well. The third row is foldable and removable without any tools to create additional luggage space. With the third row removed, the Triber offers a 625-litre boot space.

    The top variant of the Triber offers safety equipment like 2 airbags, ABS, 3-point seatbelts for all occupants rows except for the 2nd-row centre seat, rear parking sensors. The higher variants also get 2 additional thorax/side airbags, reverse camera and rear washer, wiper and defogger. The feature list is indeed healthy for the price.

    Renault Triber Features - Misses

    While this is a well-priced car, the lack of steering-mounted controls, electrically-folding outside mirrors, and front and rear armrests can’t go unnoticed. A rear armrest is a must-have in a spacious car like this as it is a great option as a chauffeur-driven vehicle.

    The stylish wheel covers look good too but 15-inch alloy wheels would’ve been nice. An automatic AC could also be a nice to have feature addition to the Triber’s top variant.

    The Triber is a great alternative for potential Maruti Suzuki Ertiga buyers. An optional captain seat variant would’ve been a perfect budget alternative to the more premium Maruti Suzuki XL6.

    Who Should Buy The Renault Triber?

    If you frequently take the back seat, then the Triber’s sliding and reclining rear seats will make your ride comfortable.

    If you have to frequently make trips to pick up or drop someone at the airport or a railway station, then the Triber’s boot will accomodate luggage like no other hatchback or sedan can. Meanwhile, the rear seat occupants can sit in comfort too.

    If you occasionally travel with more than 5 occupants, then the third row can accommodate 2 extra passengers. The head and knee room is acceptable even for adults in the third row - but only for shorter rides.

    The Triber is a good option for moving around 7 occupants. But it’s worth considering even if you want a hatchback. For hatchback money, the Renault Triber can be your 5-seater with a huge boot.

    Come to think of it, the Renault Triber seems to have all the attributes we want to have in a cab. We think this will be a particularly popular vehicle for commercial buyers and fleet owners. But that may put a dent in its image as a personal vehicle if it gains popularity in the taxi business. That’s because a lot of private car buyers avoid buying a car with the ‘taxi’ image. So it’s not for you if you’re image-conscious. But it offers a lot of practicality and value.

    Renault Triber - Competition

    The Renault Triber doesn’t have a direct competition given its size, price and seating configuration. However, it goes up against the bigger and very popular Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. The Renault Triber’s price tag should also make potential Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, Grand i10 Nios, Ford Figo buyers reconsider their purchase. Those buying a sub-4m sedan like the Maruti Suzuki Dzire or Honda Amaze for the extra boot space should also take a good look at the Renault Triber.

    Renault Triber - Background

    The Renault Triber MPV is based on the modified version of the CMF-A platform which also underpins the Renault Kwid hatchback. Before we found out the Triber’s official name, it was being referred to as RBC. The production-ready version of the MPV and its name were revealed in June 2019. It went on sale in August 2019.

    Renault Triber - Future

    The Renault Triber doesn’t have an automatic transmission. But, rumour has it that Renault will soon launch the Triber with a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission. The Renault Kwid also uses the same 1.0-litre petrol engine and it is available with an automatic option.

    Renault also intends to use the Triber’s chassis for its upcoming sub-4m SUV, codenamed HBC. The Renault sub-compact SUV is expected to launch sometime around mid of 2020.
