The Japanese carmaker spilled the beans about the upcoming people mover in its global brand strategy announced in February 2023 with alliance partner Renault

At this year’s brand strategy announcement, the Renault-Nisssan Group disclosed that it has several new models in the pipeline for the Indian market. Among these is a new vehicle from  Nissan, derived from the Renault Triber MPV. While the details on this model are sparse, here’s what the press release said:

“For India and export, Renault Group and Nissan would collaborate on several new vehicle projects including new SUVs shared by both Renault Group and Nissan, and a New Nissan car derived from the Renault Triber.” – Renault Group 

Looking at other Renault-Nissan vehicles in India – the Triber, Kiger and Nissan Magnite – gives us a fair idea of what to expect from the upcoming Nissan MPV

Affordable MPV with compact footprint

Given that the Triber is a sub-four-metre MPV, its Nissan counterpart should have the same compact footprint. The Triber is the most affordable three-row MPV you can buy in India right now, and the Nissan people mover should be similarly competitively priced, providing an affordable alternative to the Maruti XL6 and Kia Carens

Features and equipment 

While the Triber gets you little more than a removable third row and kit you expect from a budget-friendly subcompact car, the Nissan MPV could be a bit more premium. It should get a large touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, keyless entry and button start/stop. 

In addition, features such as a 360-degree camera, wireless phone charger and digitised instrument cluster from the Magnite should also be offered on the MPV. Upcoming safety regulations might also motivate Nissan to offer six airbags in its people mover.

Under the bonnet, the standard-spec Nissan people mover will get the same 72PS 1-litre NA (naturally aspirated) petrol engine as the Triber, paired with a five-speed manual or AMT gearbox. In a good news for enthusiasts and highway drivers, the facelifted Triber is expected to get the more powerful 1-litre turbo-petrol engine from the Magnite and Kiger subcompact SUVs, which should be offered in the Nissan MPV as well. 

The upcoming Nissan MPV will be an alternative to subcompact vehicles such as the Maruti Swift and Hyundai Grand i10. It remains to be seen when the MPV will be unveiled, but we expect to get our first look at the people mover sometime by mid-2024.
