Renault is all set to launch the Triber on the 28th of August, which makes it around 12 days away from now. Among the various talking points of this sub-4 meter MPV by the French manufacturers, one of the most pointed out one is the removable third-row seats. That indeed is a unique feature which adds a versatility factor to the Triber and enables the owners to choose multiple layouts. For those who are a bit confused as to how this removable system will work or those who think it’ll be cumbersome, here is a video by Autocar India that shows how the seats can be detached away easily.

Despite being a sub-4 meter vehicle, Renault claims that the vehicle offers adequate space for 7 people. The second-row seats are reclinable and slidable while the third row has two seats that are foldable and detachable. Speaking of which, the video shows that the seats are first folded and then tucked up, after which they can be detached by applying a little force and kept out of the car. This is quite a nifty solution provided by the manufacturer and removing the third row will result in a massive 625 litre of boot space. In fact, the Renault Triber is the first car in India to offer removable third seats.
Apart from this, there are multiple smart storage solutions inside the cabin including a big bucket positioned in the front of the transmission lever. Then there is a separate place to keep the smartphone and two cup holders positioned between the front two seats. Also, is a cooled storage space that can keep your beverages cool over a long journey. Further, there are two separate glovebox compartments in the dashboard which enhance the practicality. Talking about the features offered on the Triber, the sub-4 meter MPV will come with a touchscreen infotainment system and a fully-digital instrument cluster.
Other features include rear AC vents, airbags, ABS+EBD and all four power windows. The design of the vehicle is quite fresh and it does not look like a conventional boxy SUV at all. As for the question about the engine powering the Triber, Renault will use the engine and gearbox from the Kwid 1.0. The engine is a 1 liter 3 cylinder naturally aspirated unit and here it will produce 72 Bhp of power and 96 Nm of torque which is higher than the Kwid’s output. Renault will offer a 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission with the Triber in the Indian market. When launched on the 28th of this months, the prices of the Triber are expected to start below Rs. 4.5 lakh while the top-end variant will be priced under Rs. 6 lakh.
