Ahead of the global unveil on 19th June, Renault has dropped a teaser of the upcoming Triber. The silhouette of the car has been shown in the teaser.
Renault is going to launch its new seven-seat vehicle in India, known as the Triber. Currently, in its testing phase, the official unveiling is scheduled for 19th June. Triber will be launched in India first, later in foreign countries.
Also, a new teaser of Renault Triber is out, which shows how the car could actually look. Seems like a crossover between SUV and MPV. It will basically get a removable third-row seating arrangement, the first for any vehicle in India.
At the front, you see the bold Renault logo atop the front grille. The dual headlamps flank the front fascia, which seems to be projector lights. A thin strip of LED DRLs is put in the fog lamp housing space.
The bonnet of the Triber looks muscular with sharp creases atop. It gets roof rails, which establishes its big-car feeling. The wheels also look decent sized, with good ground clearance.
For those of you confusing it with the Datsun Go+, it will be a lot different. The idea is same, but we expect the Renault Triber to be more spacious. Basically, it will be one of the most affordable 7-seaters in India.
Most likely, the Triber will only come with a petrol engine. The 1.0 Litre 3-cylinder engine from Kwid will be equipped onboard. The power figures will definitely be jacked up, to carry the extra weight.
Earlier, there were rumours of it getting a 1.2 Litre petrol engine as well. As of now, there is no official confirmation of the engine. Triber will get a 5-speed manual gearbox with an option of a 5-speed AMT as well.
Talking about its competition, it will be priced near to Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue and other sub-compact SUVs. However, Renault is likely to position itself as an affordable alternative to the Maruti Ertiga.
