Renault Triber: A brief overview
Launched last year, the Triber is one of a few cars that offers seating for up to seven occupants while still keeping its footprint under four metres. A unique feature is the option to remove and stow the two seats that make up the third row to increase the luggage space as the situation demands.
At the time of launch, the Triber was offered with a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. This was further expanded to include an AMT gearbox option earlier this year following the introduction of the BS6-compliant model.
The Triber is also expected to receive a more powerful 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine option.
Renault Triber competitors
The Triber’s closest rival is the Datsun Go+ which too offers seating for up to seven in a sub-4-metre footprint. Five-seat rivals include the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Ford Figo.
With the revision in pricing, the Triber’s prices now start above the 1.2-litre petrol powered Grand i10 Nios (Rs 5.07-7.69 lakh)* though the Swift (Rs 5.19-8.02 lakh)* and petrol Figo (Rs 5.49-7.05 lakh)* have higher starting prices. The Datsun Go+ (Rs 4.20-6.90 lakh)* is the least expensive car here.
