The Renault Triber will directly rival the Datsun GO+ and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 7-seater MPV.
Renault will unveil the much-awaited 7-seater crossover MPV, called the Triber in India tomorrow. The Renault Triber entry-level UV is designed for the growing markets. It will sit below 4 meter in length and will be eligible to avail the tax benefits offered by Government on cars measuring below 4 meters in length.
The Renault Triber will directly rival the Datsun GO+ and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Wagon R 7-seater MPV. It is based on the Kwid’s CMF modular platform, which will be updated to meet the upcoming crash test norms. The design of the MPV is inspired by Kwid and the Captur. The front design is aggressive, featuring larger V-shaped radiator grille, bigger headlamps, muscular bonnet with strong lines and horizontal LED daytime running lights. The teaser image also reveals roof rails and a conventional antenna.
The Renault Triber interior is likely to be shared with the Kwid hatchback and some of the features will be sourced from the Captur crossover. It will get the advanced touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with the modern connectivity features. The MPV will also receive the removable third row of seats and dedicated AC vents for all 3 rows. Other features likely to include projector headlamps, multi-functional steering wheel, automatic AC, reverse parking camera, etc. Also See – 2019 Renault Duster launch and other details
For passengers’ safety and security, the Renault Triber will have dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, rear parking sensor, seat belt reminder and speed alert as standard. The MPV will be powered by a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine that also powers the Kwid. However, this engine will be tuned to offer higher power output. It is reported that the 1.0L engine will offer 7bhp more power than the current model. Adding to it, Renault will also introduce the 1.0L turbocharged petrol engine in the Triber range in 2020. Transmission options are likely to include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.
