The Renault Triber MPV made its global debut in New Delhi on Wednesday after a long time of its introduction.
The all-new seven-seater is based on the same CMF-A platform as that of the Kwid. The Renault Triber measures under four metres in length and, barring the Datsun Go+ MPV, is the only sub-four-metre offering in India to get three rows of seats, but gets a completely different design language that help make for a more spacious cabin.
The Renault Triber takes it design cues from the Kwid, which makes for a tall and SUV-ish appearance on the new model, but with urban looks and enough sculpting to defy its bulges. Unlike the other Renault models, the new chrome grille is not exactly V-Shaped but looks a bit similar to that on the upcoming Duster facelift. There are plenty of rugged elements too including the body cladding on the sides and the roof rails, while the model unveiled gets alloy wheels along with faux skid plates.
The Renault Triber stands 3990 mm long, 1739 wide, 1643 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2636 mm. The model ground clearance stands at 182 mm, while the kerb weight is 947 kg.
The Renault Triber gets a 625 litre boot capacity without the third row, while the second row is sliding that will help passengers easy ingress and egress to the back. The third row seats are detachable and can be taken out to optimize cargo space if only five people are travelling. Otherwise, it is a seven-seater with 5+2 seating configuration. There will be a six-seater configuration as well that will limit the boot capacity to 320 litres, while the seven seater version to 84 litres.
On the inside, the Triber comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, HVAC unit with pillar-mounted rear air vents.
The Renault Triber is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with dual VVT system that churns out 71 bhp at 6250 rpm and 96 Nm of peak torque at 3500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 5-speed manual and AMT options. The MPV will be offered with a 15-inch alloys on the top variants, while the mid and base trims will get 14-inch wheels wrapped in Ceat tyres.
Prices for the MPV are expected to start from the Rs 5.3 lakh mark, according to Autocar.
