Earlier, some pictures of the upcoming 2021 Renault Triber were leaked online. Now, Renault has officially launched the 2021 Triber in the Indian market. The manufacturer has not made any cosmetic or mechanical changes, but they have added some features that make the Triber more desirable. The MPV was already quite versatile considering it is the least expensive MPV that you can buy in the Indian market. The 2021 Triber now starts at Rs. 5.30 lakh ex-showroom for the base variant, while the top-end RXZ AMT dual-tone which is a new addition will cost Rs. 7.82 lakh ex-showroom.
The prices of the Triber have been increased by Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000 depending on the variant that you decide to buy. Renault has added some new features to the Triber and a new paint option also. The new colour is called Cedar Brown and the RXZ variant is now also offered with a dual-paint option. The dual-paint job blacks out the roof and the outside rearview mirrors. You can opt for the dual-paint job with any colour.
Then there are the feature additions such as LED turn indicators on the outside rearview mirrors, steering mounted audio controls and phone controls from the RXT variant and the height-adjustable driver seat for the top-end RXZ variant. Renault has also added a dual horn which they will be offering as standard. There have been no more feature additions to the Triber.
It still continues to get LED instrument cluster, smart access card, push-button to start/stop, touchscreen infotainment system, projector headlamps, power windows, electrical adjustment for outside rearview mirrors, twin glove box with the upper one having a cooling function, 12V socket for all the three rows, a rearview camera and much more. Renault also offers proper AC vents for the 2nd and 3rd row which comes with independent controls. There is decent safety equipment too. It comes with ABS with EBD, dual airbags, speed alert warning, rear parking sensors and seat belt warnings. Higher variants also get Styled Flex Wheels, LED Daytime Running Lamps, dual-tone dashboard with silver accents, 2 front tweeters, rear wiper and washer, rear defogger and two side airbags too for added safety.
The Triber comes with only one petrol engine. It is a three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 72 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 96 Nm. As standard, it is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, you can also get an EASY-R 5-speed AMT gearbox. Braking duties are done by disc brakes and at the rear, you get drum brakes. It also gets roof rails that can carry a load of up to 50 kgs.
Renault was supposed to launch the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that debuted with the Nissan Magnite. It is also doing duty on the recently launched Kiger compact-SUV. However, Renault has not launched that engine for the Triber yet. The more powerful engine produces 100 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 160 Nm. It is offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic transmission. The engine is expected to get launched by the end of this year or early next year.
