What Are The Pros And Cons Of Renault Triber Petrol?

The pros or advantages of Renault Triber petrol are:

  • Contemporary styling for an MPV even with a sub-4m length
  • Surprisingly spacious for a sub-4m 3-row MPV; even the 3rd row is usable for shorter adults
  • Removable 3rd row offers an immensely practical boot measuring 625 litres, which is even more than that of the Ertiga with the 3rd row folded
  • Affordable pricing for a stylish, city-friendly 7-seater car
  • Considering the size, price and body style, the Triber is in a class of its own
  • Option of AMT automatic in the well-priced and VFM top 2 variants
  • The respectable 182mm ground clearance is comparable with SUVs

The Renault Triber petrol has the following shortcomings or problems:

  • The small 1.0L normal petrol engine doesn’t offer enough power and torque for frequent highway driving and comfortably overtaking on single-lane highways
  • We wish the Triber also had a turbo petrol engine option for buyers who want to drive the car on the highways as well as get good drivability in the city without sacrificing fuel efficiency
  • Missing features include cruise control, front and 2nd row armrests, option of captain seats
  • The RXL variant offers poor value for money while the base model doesn’t get several must-have features we expect from an MPV

What Is The Price Of Renault Triber Petrol Variants?

The Renault Triber petrol is available with a 1.0L normal petrol engine. It gets a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission. The petrol-manual range is available in all 4 variants with prices ranging from Rs. 5.92 lakh and going up to Rs. 7.79 lakh. The automatic transmission is available in the higher RXT and RXZ variants, which cost Rs. 7.71 lakh and Rs. 8.31 lakh, respectively. The price jump to the automatic transmission in the comparable variants is Rs. 52,000.

Which Variant Of The Renault Triber Petrol Should You Buy?

For the Triber manual buyers, the base and RXL variants are not worth buying. The base variant doesn’t get several must-have features while the RXL offers poor value for money. The RXT is the minimum variant you should consider but if you can buy the RXZ, then that’s even better. The top model of the Triber gets our top recommendation among all Triber variants.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Renault Triber Petrol?

The Renault Triber is in a class of its own as it’s the only B2-segment 7-seater MPV for mass market buyers. So there isn’t another car to compare it with. The 1.0L petrol engine in the Triber makes 72PS of power and 96Nm of torque. The 100Nm/t torque-to-weight ratio is adequate to drive the car in the city even with 7 occupants. But this engine is not suitable for sustained highway usage, especially with a full load as it doesn’t have the power and torque to quickly accelerate and overtake on the highway. We wish Renault also offered the option of 1.0L turbo petrol engine with the Triber.

What Are The Dimensions Of The Renault Triber?

In terms of dimensions, the 625 litres of boot space in 2-row mode is the highlight as it’s more than that of the Ertiga. This is because of the removable 3rd row seats of the Triber. Another thing that stands out is its respectable SUV-like ground clearance measuring 182mm. Although, once you load the car up, it’ll sag but 182mm is a good starting point, especially for 4 occupants and it’ll rarely scrape on the usual tall speed breakers.
