French carmaker Renault revealed the Triber back in 2019 June and now they have finally launched the crossover MPV. It is priced between INR 4.95 lakh and INR 6.49 lakh. The car features a modular seating layout and it is a unique vehicle in its segment. Check out the specifications of the phone below:

Features of Renault Triber:

Renault offers the Triber with only one engine option – 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol motor that makes 72PS of max power and 96Nm of peak torque. It can be had with a 5-speed manual gearbox which drives the front wheels. The engine currently complies with BS4 emission norm

The major selling point of the Renault Triber is its modular seating. The second row can be slid forward and can also be folded in a 60:40 ratio. The third-row seats can be detached individually, allowing for multiple seating configurations inside the Triber’s cabin. With its third row folded down, the Triber can take in 625 liters of cargo in the boot which is more than what the Ertiga offers (550 liters) with its third row folded.

It is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The driver also gets to make use of a 3.5-inch multi-info display (MID) that sits next to the tachometer in the instrument cluster. For the entry, the Triber uses smart key functionality.

For those who like to keep beverages while traveling, Renault is also offering a first-in-segment refrigerated compartment inside the front armrest and a cooled glove box as well. Talking about the safety the car offers four airbags on the top-spec variant of the Triber. ABS with EBD, front seatbelt reminder and a speed alert system make up the rest of the safety net.

The Renault Triber does not have a natural rival in the market and Datsun’s GO plus is the only car that comes close because it can seat seven people. Putting that aside and taking the Triber’s price into account, the recently launched Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, the Maruti Swift, Ford Figo, and the Freestyle are some of the cars that will compete with  Triber.
