Renault India has rolled the all-new Triber 7-seater MPV in the Indian market. The MPV carline is spread across four trims – RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ – priced at Rs 4.95 lakh, Rs 5.49 lakh, Rs 5.99 lakh and Rs 6.49 lakh respectively. All prices are ex-showroom, India. In this price range, the Renault Triber MPV will compete against compact hatchbacks like Maruti Suzuki Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. It will also take on the Datsun GO+ 7-seater MPV.
In order to see which one out of these four cars make more sense to buy, we compare prices of Renault Triber and its close competitors. Priced from Rs 4.95 lakh to Rs 6.49 lakh, the Renault Triber sits between the Kwid hatchback and Duster SUV in the company’s product lineup. The new 7-seater MPV has been made available with a 1.0L, 3-cylinder petrol engine that’s good enough for 72bhp and 96Nm. For transmission purpose, it gets a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Prices of the Maruti Swift petrol start from Rs 5.14 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 7.97 lakh. The newly-launched Hyundai Grand i10 Nios comes in the price range of Rs 4.99 lakh – Rs 7.13 lakh. Both models are indirect rivals of the Triber, and are relatively more expensive. The Datsun GO+, on the other hand, is more affordable than the Renault Triber. The former comes at a starting price of Rs 3.86 lakh that goes up to Rs 5.94 lakh. Read – Renault To Launch 3 New Cars In India
