The compact MPV is currently available with a 5-speed manual gearbox

  • The Triber is currently sold at a price range of Rs 4.95 lakh to Rs 6.49 lakh in four variants
  • Renault is expected to introduce the AMT option alongside the BS6-compliant version of the 1.0-litre engine next year.
  • Expect the AMT to be introduced in the top-spec variant with a premium of around Rs 50,000 over its manual counterpart.
  • The Triber AMT with the BS6 motor is likely to be launched at the 2020 Auto Expo.

Renault recently launched the Triber MPV with an aggressive price-tag ranging between Rs 4.95 lakh to Rs 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom India). The MPV is offered in a total of four variants - RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ. While an AMT transmission option was announced for the Triber at its global unveil in June 2019, it was given a miss when the MPV was  launched. 

However there’s good news on the horizon as Renault is expected to introduce the AMT version early next year, probably at the 2020 Auto Expo. The Triber AMT is also likely to come with a BS6-compliant engine. 

The Triber is currently powered by a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder Energy motor with Dual VVT. It delivers 72PS of power and 96Nm of torque to the front wheels while mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Claimed efficiency figures are 20kmpl. 

One of the major highlights of the Triber is it’s flexible seating options. It gets four seating modes: Life, Tribe, Surf and Camp. Life mode is the five-seater option which provides a whopping 625 litres of boot space (third row EasyFix seats removed). The Tribe mode is a 7-seater setup with the third-row seats up which provides 84 litres of boot space. Surf and Camp modes are the more extreme, but  less important configurations that offer seating for four and two passengers respectively. 

Exterior highlights of the Triber include traditional Renault elements like the grille that leads towards the headlamps. Other highlights at the front include projector headlamps with LED DRLs and fog lamps. The rear gets a minimalistic design with split tail lamps.

On the inside, the Triber gets various creature comforts on offer like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, dual glove compartment and a cooled storage in the centre console. Other nifty bits include twin air con vents for second and third row, smart access card, push-button start, alloy wheels, LED instrument cluster and four airbags (two airbags as standard). It also gets extended warranty packages ranging from three, four and five years. 

Expect Renault to offer the AMT option in the top-spec variant of the Triber at a premium of around Rs 50,000 over the manual counterpart. While the Triber currently doesn’t have any direct rivals, its prices put it up against hatchbacks such as the Maruti Suzuki SwiftHyundai Grand i10 Nios and Ford Figo.
