Renault Triber is a very unique vehicle in its class. It is the cheapest 7-seater MPV that you can get in India. It falls under 4-metres which has helped Renault in positioning it so attractively in the Indian market. Despite being on a budget, Renault has packed in quite a bit of feature to attract the buyers. Due to this, Triber has received a good response from the market. Now, the manufacturer is working on the 2021 iteration of the Triber. Renault will be adding more features to the exterior as well as the interior. Here is detailed information on what all the manufacturer will be adding.
The top of the line RXZ variant will now be offered with a dual-tone paint job. So, the roof will now be finished in a contrasting black colour. There will also be a new Cedar Brown colour that will be introduced by Renault. The new colour will be replacing the now-discontinued Red colour. Other colours like Silver, Blue and White will still be on offer. Renault will also add LED turn indicators on the outside rearview mirrors.
Now, speaking about the changes to the interior. Renault will now offer a multi-function steering wheel which will come with audio controls for the infotainment system and phone controls. There will also be a height-adjustable driver seat which should help drivers in getting more comfortable and find the right driving position. Moreover, Renault will now be offering a dual-horn setup instead of a single-horn setup like on the current ones.
As of now, there are no mechanical changes to the Triber. Yes, we are expecting the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that we have seen on the Nissan Magnite and the Renault Kiger. However, the 2021 Triber will continue to come with the 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated Energy petrol engine. The engine produces 72 PS of max power and 96 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or a 5-speed Easy-R AMT gearbox. With the new updates, the price of the Triber is expected to go up marginally.
At the front, the Triber gets projector halogen headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamp strip mounted at the fog lamps place. At the rear, there are regular tail lamps, but they get an Eagle beak design. The Triber comes with a ground clearance of 182 mm which is decent to tackle Indian roads. There is a dual-tone dashboard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are air conditioning vents placed on the B-pillar for the second-row and roof-mounted air conditioning vents for the third-row.
It gets a central cooled-storage so you can keep the drinks that you want to stay cold. You can get up to 4 airbags with the Triber alongside ABS with EBD, speed alert warning and rear parking sensors. Renault also offers a smart access card, push-button to start/stop, rear parking camera, digital instrument cluster and much more. Moreover, the roof rails can take a weight of up to 50 kgs. Currently, Renault Triber starts from Rs. 5.20 lakhs ex-showroom and goes all the way up to Rs. 7.5 lakhs ex-showroom.
