The Renault Triber sub-4 metre MPV that had its world premiere last month will be launched in India this month. According to a new report from CarToq, it will be priced from INR 4.4 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The Renault Triber will compete directly with the Datsun GO+, which is priced from INR 3.87-5.94 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Renault Triber will be a pricier offering costing INR 4.4-5.8 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will be more premium and safer, though. The Renault Triber will come with features like projector headlamps, LED DRLs, 15-inch alloy wheels, 3.5-inch MID, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, removable third-row seats and passive keyless entry.
On the safety front, in addition to ABS, driver and front passenger seat belt reminder, rear parking sensors, speed alert system and driver airbag mandated by the new safety norms, the SUV-styled MPV will be equipped with a front passenger airbag, side airbags and rear parking camera. The Renault Triber measures 3,990 mm in length, 1,739 mm in width and 1,643 mm in height. It has a 2,636 mm wheelbase and 182 mm ground clearance. It offers a luggage space of 84 litres (7 seater condition)/320 litres (6 seater condition)/625 litres (5 seater condition).
Under the hood, the Renault Triber has a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine that develops 72 PS at 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. This engine will be coupled to a standard 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed automated manual transmission. A diesel engine option isn’t planned for this model, but a more powerful and torquier turbocharged petrol engine is in the making.
