Renault has announced the unveiling of its new seven-seater, a vehicle that’s been designed and developed specifically for Indian roads and the Indian market. Built on a revolutionary new platform and defining a new segment, the Triber is being hailed as a car with incredible possibilities – a car that will create a new tribe of followers for the auto giant!
Bigger and Better
Expected to roll out on the roads by July, the Triber will cost between Rs 5.5 – 8 lakhs. Based on an upgraded version of the Kwid’s CMF-A platform, the Triber will have a functional design that will offer more space and comfort to the passengers. The car’s tall profile is a strong indicator that it will be larger than its rivals in the segment, including hot favorites like Baleno, Elite i20 and the Jazz.
New headlights with LED DRLs, chrome bumper inserts, and a V-shaped grille are the external changes. Inside, the car will have dual tone interiors and a touchscreen infotainment system that’s larger than the Kwid’s and is compatible with Apple and Android apps. Renault has added some good-to-have smart features like driver economy rating and driving style coaching to its infotainment system.
Safety features like ABS, dual front airbags, speed warning system, seatbelt warning system and rear parking sensors are a given. The top variants will have a reverse camera and more airbags.
An updated version of the Kwid’s 1.0-litre BR10 three-cylinder engine will be powering the Triber. The car is also expected to come in both manual and automatic gearbox versions. As of now, Renault would only be launching the petrol version, with no signs of a diesel one in the near future.
With Renault sharing teaser videos of the Triber, there is a lot of buzz around the ‘super spacious’, ‘ultra-modern’ and ‘India’s first’ modular seven-seater. The teaser campaign confirms that the Triber will be offered with a modular seating layout, making it versatile and appealing to a larger segment of customers.
