The Triber’s base RXE variant is priced at Rs 5.30 lakh. 

This car’s USP is its flexible seating arrangement, and from the base variant up it offers the feature of 60:40 split second row with slide, recline, fold and tumble function options.

Hence, with this flexible seating arrangement, you can customize your Triber into a 2-seater, 4-seater, 5-seater, 6-seater or 7-seater as and when required. 

The Triber base variant comes with all the standard safety features, and apart from these it gets halogen projector headlamps and body-coloured bumpers, but its door handles and ORVMs are black coloured. The RXE variant’s key functional features include front power windows and front power outlet.

Hence, we recommend the RXT variant over the RXL to the buyers who are looking to buy the AMT version of the Triber, while this variant is also a worthy buy in case of the manual transmission version.

According to our internal data, the RXZ variant’s incremental cost of Rs 60,000 over the RXT variant is fully justified given its array of additional features. 

The RXZ comes with a number of additional, important safety related features. Apart from the RXE, the top RXZ variant offers the best value compared to the rest of the Triber variants.

Hence, we would recommend all the buyers that are thinking of buying the RXT variant, to consider the RXZ variant instead by stretching their budget a bit. This is true in case of both the manual and AMT type transmission options. 

As the RXZ is the top Triber variant, Renault also offers a dual-tone exterior paint scheme on this variant, for which you’ll need to shell out an additional premium of Rs 17,000. 

Renault Triber Variant - Which One To Buy? 

Now, let us sum up all the variant-wise recommendations on the 2021 Renault Triber. 

If you are looking to buy the Triber with the manual transmission, then the top RXZ variant is our top recommendation. The RXZ variant offers the best combination of value and features. If you are considering the RXT variant, then we would suggest that you consider stretching your budget and settle for the RXZ variant instead. 

For the budget buyers, who won’t mind compromising on the value a bit, can consider going for the RXL variant.

In case of the AMT version, again for the budget buyers we suggest the RXL variant, but for the rest of the buyers, we definitely recommend the top RXZ variant for the same reasons mentioned earlier.
