Renault
will soon enter the premium hatchback segment with the Triber. Scheduled for a global unveil tomorrow, the Triber will take on the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20, Honda Jazz, Toyota Glanza and the upcoming Altroz hatchback. While Renault might be late to the party, the Triber might bring something new to the segment with its ‘Ultra Modular’ tag. Here’s what to expect from the upcoming Triber:

 

Styling:

Renault has teased the front-end design of the Triber and from the looks of it, the Triber might get the cross-hatch-like design that’s seen on the Ford Freestyle. The front end gets a Kwid-esque grille with the large Renault logo housed in it. Flanking the prominent grille up front are a pair of dual-barrel projector headlamps and the DRLs just above the fog lamps, in the bumper. The bonnet looks chunky as well with two bulges on it.

 

Based on the spy shots received earlier, the side profile of the Triber features a tall-boy-like design, which could translate into a good amount of headroom inside. The rear end of the Triber is still kept under wraps, but expect it to feature LED tail lamps.

 

The ‘Ultra Modular’ tag:

The French carmaker’s associates the tag ‘Ultra Modular’ with the Triber. While it is expected to be a large premium hatchback, the Triber will feature a modular seating arrangement and is expected to seat up to 6 people. Thanks to the modular tag, the Triber is also expected to carry various kinds of luggage with plenty of flexibility options. This kind of setup will be the first of its kind in the premium hatchback segment.

 

Features:

Since the Triber is expected to enter the hotly contested premium hatchback segment, it is likely to come loaded with features to take on its well established rivals. These will include a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, steering wheel-mounted controls, keyless entry and push button start, multi-info driver’s display, auto headlamps and more are expected to be present here.

 

On the safety front, expect the Triber to feature dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors with camera, driver and co-driver seatbelt warning and high speed alert as standard on all variants.

 

Engine And Transmission Options:

The Triber is expected to use the 1.0-litre petrol engine from the Kwid or the 1.2-litre unit from the Micra. The 1.0-litre engine is good for 68PS and 91Nm of torque, but it will most likely come in a higher state of tune with the Triber. Meanwhile, the bigger 1.2-litre engine produces 77PS of power and 109Nm of torque. While the Triber will be available with a manual transmission, it is also expected to come with an AMT option as a test mule with the two-pedal setup has been spied on test before.

 

The Triber is likely to be a petrol-only car as diesel engines are set to become more expensive post the implementation of the upcoming BS6 emission norms in April 2020.

 

Price And Expected Launch:

The Renault Triber is expected to be priced in the Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh range. It is expected to hit our roads a few weeks after its official unveiling on June 19.
