Reportedly, the prices of Renault Triber have been leaked. The 7-seater car is a fusion of a hatchback and an MPV, rivalling the likes of Datsun GO+.
Renault recently unveiled its new 7-seater car, Triber. It actually creates a new segment of a 7-seater car that looks like an extended hatchback but desires to be a small MPV.
At the unveiling, the engine specifications and interiors were revealed to the media. However, the dimensions and prices were yet to be revealed. Last week itself, we got the know the size of Triber and the colours it is offered with.
Cartoq now reports that the prices of Renault Triber will start off at Rs 4.4 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The top-end variant will go up to 5.8 Lakhs. That clears that it is not the most affordable 7-seater car of India.
As it directly competes against Datsun GO+, the prices of latter start off at Rs 3.87 Lakhs to Rs 5.94 Lakhs (ex-showroom). Go+ is also a 7-seater car but is less premium in comparison to the Triber.
Renault Triber gets a 1.0 Litre 3-cylinder petrol engine, that produces 72 BHP at 6250 RPM and 96 Nm of torque at 3500 RPM. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox with an optional 5-speed AMT as well.
Renault has confirmed that it will discontinue the diesel engines post BS-6 norms. So, neither Triber nor Duster nor Captur will get diesel engines. However, reports suggest that the 7-seater could get a turbocharged petrol engine later.
Triber is 3990mm long, 1739mm wide and 1643mm tall. That makes it a compact car or you can say, a compact MPV. The kerb weight of the car stands at a mere 947 kgs.
Features onboard include 8-inch touchscreen infotainment, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Start-Stop Button, Three-Row AD Vents, Keyless Entry and much more. Safety features onboard include four airbags, speed alert, reverse parking camera, rear sensors and seat belt reminder.
Triber mainly gets an additional third row which is completely removable. It offers more than 100 configurations useful for a single person, two people, luggage and many more uses.
The Triber is set to be launched in India this month itself, as it competes with the prices of Maruti WagonR, Hyundai Santro and Tata Tiago. Don’t you think even WagonR would be a good competitor?
