Renault finally unveiled its first-ever sub-4 metre MPV in India called the Triber. The Triber brings unique modularity and practicality that is unseen in the sub-4 metre segment. With its fresh design and styling, the Triber packs quite a few surprises. Here’s the newly unveiled Triber in detailed pictures.
At the front, the Renault Triber takes some inspiration from the Renault Kwid and Captur with a wide front grille blending with the sleek projector headlamps. Lower down, the Triber gets LED DRLs but oddly enough, it doesn’t feature fog lamps. The Triber also features black cladding which runs across the front area towards the rest of its body.
Moving on to the side, the Triber may look like a stretched out Kwid at first glance, but there’s much more here. One of the key highlights of the Triber is its long 2636mm wheelbase that adds to the practicality of the sub-4 metre MPV. It is only 104mm shorter than the Ertiga’s wheelbase. The most impressive stat, however, is the fact that Renault has managed to pack in all of that space under four metres with a length of 3990mm. Other interesting bits on the Triber include roof rails, flared wheel arches and black cladding. Renault has managed to cleverly utilise the Triber’s footprint, which is evident in the kink on its roof for extra head room.
At first glance, it may look like the Triber has alloy wheels, but they are in fact steel pressed rims with wheel caps that are shod with 185/65 R15 tyres. Lower variants will get 14-inch wheels.
Coming to the rear, the black cladding is continued from the wheel arches all the way across the rear area. Its taillights are quite large in size and the stop lights are wrapped around the indicators and reverse lights. Aside from that, the rear of the Triber doesn’t look as muscular as its side profile. It looks more like a crossover between a hatchback and an MPV.
One of Renault’s traditional stand out features is the positioning of the variant logos at the doors instead of the boot area. The Triber continues that tradition with the top-spec ‘RXZ’ variant pictured here featuring the logo on the front-left door pillar.
On the inside, the seven-seat Renault Triber boasts class leading practicality with a modular seating arrangement. Its first as well as second row seats are reclinable, which help improve leg room for third-row occupants. The second-row seats have a 60:40 split whereas the third row seats get a 50:50 split option. The last row is removable too. The Triber also gets second and third row AC vents.
The Renault Triber features a 3.5-inch multi-info display (MID) which relays driver information such as speed, fuel levels, mileage tracker, and more. A surprising feature for the Triber is that there are no steering mounted controls, which is odd considering the traditional norms of today.
Other interior features include a 7.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, push button start, and more. Renault has gone for a more conventional route for the AC system in the Triber. It gets a manual unit instead of automatic climate control seen on the top variants of other sub-4 metre cars.
The Triber doesn’t disappoint when it comes to storage space as it gets a dual glove compartment.
In addition to the dual glove compartment, the Triber also gets a spacious central storage unit below the central armrest. What’s more, it is also cooled.
The Triber doesn’t compromise on safety with features like four airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, reverse camera, driver and co-driver seatbelt warning and high speed alert.
Once the third row seats are removed, the Renault Triber boasts a spacious 625 litres of boot space.
Under the hood, the Renault Triber will be powered by a new 1.0-litre Energy Dual VVT 3-cylinder petrol engine. It delivers a power output of 72PS and 96Nm of torque. These figures are 4PS and 5Nm more than the Kwid’s 1.0-litre unit.
The Renault Triber’s 1.0-litre petrol engine is mated to a 5-speed manual and an Easy-R AMT gearbox option. According to Renault, the Triber delivers a fuel efficiency of 20kmpl with the manual gearbox and 20.5kmpl with the AMT.
Even though the Triber has no direct competition in India, it will take on B-segment hatchbacks in terms of pricing. It will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and the Ford Freestyle. It is expected to be priced between Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh (ex-showroom India). Renault is yet to reveal the launch date of the Triber, but we expect it to hit showrooms by mid-July.
