    Renault Triber turbo-petrol launch by March 2020

    The Renault Triber was launched in August 2019 with only a single engine-gearbox combination on offer. That's set to change soon though with Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO and MD, Renault India, recently stating: “By the end of the first quarter next year (March 2020), we will be introducing a new variant of Triber which will be followed by the AMT variant later.” This corroborates our previous report of the Triber getting a new 1.0-litre turbocharged-petrol engine option in 2020.

    Power for the new Triber variant will come from a new Renault-Nissan-developed, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine (code: HR10). The unit is set to power a range of Renault and Nissan products in India from 2020. Although the power figures have not been announced yet, we expect the engine will produce close to 95hp and it is likely to be offered with a manual gearbox.

    At present, the Triber comes with a naturally aspirated, 1.0-litre petrol engine which is good for 72hp and 96Nm, paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

    The Triber is fairly well-equipped, especially the top-spec version. It gets standard features like an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument cluster, AC vents on all three rows, keyless entry, push-button start/stop, power windows, projector headlamps with LED DRLs, and a rear wash-wipe. The new variant is not expected to see any changes in this department.
