A few days back, the Renault Triber was in the news when it landed in Indonesia for GIIAS 2019, and now, it has been officially displayed in the country ahead of the show. What's interesting to note is that unlike the Indian-spec Triber, the Indonesian-spec Triber will be offered with 14-inch alloy wheels and 15-inch black alloy wheels.
Like hatchbacks in India, MPVs are very popular in Indonesia and being a low-cost model, the Renault Triber holds great potential for the country. ASEAN markets generally tend to have sportier styling, with different alloy wheels and body kit. Hence the option for the black alloy wheels in the MPV. The Indian-spec version will be available with regular 15-inch alloy wheels.
The Renault Triber is based on the CMF-A+ platform and is reminiscent of the Renault Kwid to a certain extent. On the outside, it has a large V-shaped grille along with projector headlamps design, horizontal LED DRLs in a black housing, sculpted bonnet, sturdy front bumper, skid plates, roof rails and two-part Eagle beak tail lamps.
Inside, it has the same equipment list in the form of an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay (Android Auto not confirmed yet), start/stop button , passive keyless entry, 3.5-inch MID and removable third-row seats. The Indonesian-spec Triber also gets four-airbags.
In terms of dimensions, the Renault Triber measures 3,990 mm long, 1,739 mm wide and 1,643 mm tall. Its overall length has been restricted to the 4-meter mark to save it from the higher taxes levied on longer vehicles. Furthermore, it has a wheelbase of 2,636 mm and a ground clearance of 182 mm. Renault boasts a foldable/removable third-row of seats which makes it highly convenient by offering huge luggage space. Speaking of which, it offers different luggage space capacities: 625 litres in 7-seater condition, 320 litres in 6-seater condition and 84 litres in 7-seater condition.
The Renault Kwid will be offered with a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol engine that delivers 72 PS at 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 5-speed automated manual transmission (unconfirmed for the Indonesian market).
In India, the Triber is said to be launched in August, 2019.
