The Renault Triber teaser claims that this upcoming premium hatchback from Renault will be “Super Spacious” and “Ultra Modern”.
Renault has released another teaser of the Triber, their upcoming premium hatchback that goes against the likes of the Hyundai i20, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Honda Jazz. In the latest teaser, the Triber is shown being tested on various terrains that is available in out country. Renault claims that the Triber will be “super spacious”, “ultra modern” and “India’s first”, as has been shown in the teaser.
The Triber might actually be offered with a modular and versatile seating layout as had been claimed by the company when they first teased the Triber back in April, this year. Also, going by the bulky proportions of the test mules that have been spotted so far, we can certainly say that the Triber will boast of one of the most spacious interiors in the class. Here’s the fresh new teaser revealed by Renault.
Renault say that the Triber is based on a all-new platform. However, it is more likely that it is based on a derivative of Renault’s modular CMF-A platform which is what the Kwid is based on. Renault just seems to be tricking the eye with the tall, upright stance, the flared wheel arches and roof rails which gives the car a bulky look. Renault is betting big on the practicality aspect of the car but whether it will offer five or seven seats, we will know only at the time of launch.
The Renault Triber could be powered by a 1.0L, petrol engine from the Kwid or the 1.2L, petrol engine from the Micra. There could be a turbocharged petrol engine on the cards as well. Gearbox options will include a manual transmission and Renault’s Easy-R 5-speed AMT might also make its way in the Triber. There has been no word on a diesel variant yet. Given the BS-VI emission norms coming next year, chances are Renault will not consider putting a diesel engine in the Triber.

On the interiors, it will feature a large infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, climate control and a rear parking camera. It will also have dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, seatbelt warning for front occupants and a high speed alert system as standard. These safety features are anyway mandatory from July onwards.
The Renault Triber will be unveiled on 19th June, followed by the launch expected sometime in July or August. The Triber will sit below the Duster in Renault’s India line-up. This will be first premium hatchback from Renault in India when it goes on sale.
