Nissan Motor India has plans to introduce an MPV based on the Renault Triber in India. The Indian car lineup of the carmaker currently includes the Nissan Kicks and the Magnite. For India, the automaker will bring the 7-seater MPV, based on the CMF-A+ platform, developed by the Renault-Nissan joint venture. For the uninitiated, Renault India launched the Triber in June 2019. Powering the Triber is a 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, which delivers 71bhp and 96Nm. The engine is mated to both an AMT unit and a five-speed manual gearbox. Nissan and Renault are renewing their alliance and will bring several new vehicles to the Indian market. The collaboration will reportedly result in new SUVs, including the Renault Duster, which is anticipated to be a production version of the Dacia Bigster Concept. 

The upcoming Nissan MPV is likely to come equipped with two engine options - a 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine and a 1.0-litre turbo petrol unit.  As mentioned earlier, the 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol works with the current Triber. Speaking of appearance, the Nissan MPV will get several cosmetic improvements over the current Triber in India. Along with reprofiled bumpers and new wheel covers, the MPV might get a new front grille. The cabin is likely to get a new motif and fabric upholstery. It will feature a touchscreen infotainment system, rear air conditioning vents, and different storage options. Further, the MPV will offer a seven-seat configuration to buyers.
