- It will offer the versatility of a spacious seven-seater in a sub-four meter footprint.
- The Triber will reportedly get a 1.0-litre petrol motor, mated to manual and AMT transmissions.
Renault Triber, the French carmaker’s take on a compact sub-four meter seven-seater, will make its global debut tomorrow in India. The Triber will be based on a modified version of the Renault Kwid’s CMF-A platform. Renault is betting big on the flexibility that the Triber brings to the table in a compact (3.99 meters) footprint.
Ahead of its official unveiling, Renault India has released a teaser of the Triber, which reveals the front fascia of the car. Speaking of which, the Renault Triber’s design is inspired by the Captur. It has sleek wraparound projector headlamps, a chrome grille, LED DRLs in place of the fog lamps and a faux scuff plate. We can also notice the character lines on the hood and the roof rails.
Renault claims the modified Kwid platform will offer best-in-segment interior space and modularity. Which means the CMF-A platform has been redesigned to increase the wheelbase, and it will have a new wiring harness as well.
At the heart, the Renault Triber will reportedly use a 1.0-litre three-cylinder motor, which also does duty on the Kwid. However, considering the Triber is a seven-seater people luger, Renault could plonk a turbocharger on the Triber to compensate for the lower power figures of the naturally aspirated engine. It will be offered with a five-speed manual and AMT gearbox options. With the Triber expected to be launched in the months to come, we expect it to be priced between Rs 5-7 lakhs (ex-showroom).
