The Renault Triber bookings will commence from next week. There will be an official announcement from the company soon and it will be launched later in August.
Renault made the global debut of the Triber last month in India and while the car is scheduled to launch in August, we can confirm that the bookings for the Triber will commence from next week. There will be an official announcement from the company soon. The prices of the Triber has already been leaked to be between Rs. 4.4 lakhs to Rs. 5.8 lakhs, ex-showroom.
The Triber is a very interesting car because it has created a whole new segment for itself. It is sized like a hatchback but intends and looks like an MPV with seven seats. The Renault Triber measures 3990mm in length, has a width of 1739mm, a height of 1,643mm (without roof rails) and has a wheelbase of 2636mm. The car comes with a ground clearance of 182mm, while the vehicle’s kerb weight is 947kg.
As the dimensions of the Renault Triber reveal, it’s size is right up there with cars in the premium hatchback segment but its wheelbase is a little longer than most of them. That is what allows space for the third row of seats. On the interiors, it gets a shoulder room of 1356mm in the first row, 1330mm in the second row and 1216mm in the third row. The shoulder room, even in the third row is pretty decent and it wouldn’t be much cramped up there.
The interior dashboard layout is very well laid out as well. It looks quite premium and it scores very well on the practicality front too. It has dedicated AC vents and 12V power sockets in each of the three rows. It gets features like a cooled central storage area, cooled glove box, and 31-liters of storage area inside the cabin. There’s a large enough infotainment system for your connectivity and entertainment purposes and you also get a massive 620-liters of boot space when you have the third row down.
The Renault Triber will be powered by a 1.0L, three-cylinder petrol engine that will produce 71 bhp and 96 Nm of torque. It will be available with a five-speed manual and AMT gearbox options.
The Triber is a very unique car and it does not have any direct rival in the market other than the Datsun Go+ but that car isn’t a competition anyway. The Triber will actually rival the B-segment hatchbacks which include the Hyundai Grand i10, the Maruti Suzuki Swift and the Ford Figo. With the bookings commencing next week, we expect it to be a very well selling car.
