Despite the addition of the larger rim, the price of the Renault Triber RxZ remains unchanged. The Triber was launched in August this year and is priced between Rs 4.95 lakh and Rs 6.49 lakh
Renault has silently updated the top-end variant of the Triber with 15-inch wheels as standard. At the time of its launch in August, the company only offered these wheels as an optional accessory. Interestingly, despite the larger wheel, the price of the MPV remains unchanged at Rs 6.49 lakh.
Since the time of its launch, Renault has got good response for the Triber. A recent statement from Renault revealed that the company has sold more than 10,000 units in just two months. One of the primary reasons for the popularity of the Triber is that it is among the cheapest MPVs on sale in India. Despite being a sub-4 metre offering, Renault has smartly fitted it with modular seats that ensure the best utilisation of space. In terms of equipment too, the Triber comes reasonably well equipped. It gets projector headlamps, LED DRLs, a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and above all, three rows of seating. Safety features include ABS, EBD and rear parking sensor. The Triber does miss out on alloy wheels even in the top-end variant though.
At the heart, the Triber sports the same 1.0-litre engine as the Kwid. This motor is good for 71bhp and 96Nm. As of now, Renault has only introduced the Triber with a 5-speed manual. An AMT is on the cards for a later date. The only real competitor to the Triber comes from Renault’s own sister company in the form of the Datsun Go.
