Renault, the French carmaker, had announced to launch 2 new cars in India in the next 2 years. This year, the company will launch the Triber 7-seater MPV, which will be followed by the Kwid-based sub-4 meter SUV in 2020. Adding to it, Renault will introduce the facelifted versions of the Duster and Kwid in 2019. The long-awaited Renault Triber made its global debut at an event in New Delhi. It is expected to be launched in the next 2-3 months, probably around July-August 2019.
