Renault Triber Preview
Renault managed to do well in the small car segment courtesy the Kwid. The company will soon bring in another sub-4 metre offering, this time a 7-seater MPV. Commonly known by its codename RBC, Renault officially christened the car as Triber in April 2019. Based on a modified version of the CMF-A platform that underpins the Kwid, Renault claims that the Triber will have excellent space efficiency in the smallest footprint possible. In terms of positioning, the Triber will sit just above the Kwid. With that in mind, expect it to be priced in the Rs 5-7 lakh range.
Renault hasn't shown us the car as yet or released any official images. If the spy shots are anything to by, the Triber will come with a new V-shaped grille, headlights with DRLs, and some chrome accents on the front bumper. Expect the Triber’s interior to sport dual-tone treatment. Taking centre stage will be a touchscreen infotainment system – possibly the same unit as the Kwid, and it will be Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The Triber will have three rows of seating with a removable last row to increase boot space. Top-spec variant of the Triber is expected to have front two airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, rear AC vent, power windows and more.
While there is no official confirmation as yet, expect the Triber to be powered by a 1.0-litre 3-pot petrol motor from the Kwid. This engine may come paired with a 5-speed manual or an AMT option. Alternatively, Renault could also offer the 1.2-litre petrol motor from the Datsun Go.
