Renault launched their sub-4 meter compact 6-seater MPV Triber in the market last year. This year at the Auto Expo, they unveiled the AMT version of the same. The AMT version of Triber is priced at Rs 6.18 lakh, ex-showroom and goes up to Rs 7.22 lakh, ex-showroom. The deliveries for the same were delayed due to the lockdown and ongoing pandemic situation. Triber is the most affordable six seater MPV in the segement and does not have direct competition. The manual version of Triber has been doing good in terms of sales and has been second best selling car from the brand after Kwid. Here we have a video that shows how the Triber AMT feels to drive.
The video has been uploaded by Vivu’s Auto Vlogs on their youtube channel. In terms of looks, the Triber AMT is no different from the manual version. It is still gets, projector type headlamps, chrome embedded front grille, faux skid plate, LED DRL and chrome inserts at places. One of the good parts about the Triber was its design. Even though, it is just under 4 meter, Renault has managed to give it a great design that does not look odd on roads.
The AMT version of Triber comes in three trims of RXL Easy-R, RXT Easy-R and RXZ Easy-R. The vlogger in this video is driving the top-end RXZ Easy-R which comes with all the features. The only difference on the inside is a gear lever which is now an AMT instead of manual. The vlogger starts driving the car and immediately loves the way it responds. It is a known fact that AMT’s are not as good as conventional automatic gearboxes. But in comparison to the other AMT gearboxes in the segment, he felt the one used in Triber was good.
He even ranked it and said that this AMT gearbox is the second best after the ones used Maruti Suzuki in their cars.The small engine has been a drawback for Triber since the beginning and vlogger says that if all three rows in this car is occupied, then the car will struggle to be quick. The NVH levels where decent considering the fact it is a sub-4 meter car. Overall, the vlogger was happy with the AMT gearbox, handling and ride quality of the car and the only let down will be the fact that the 1.0 litre naturally aspirated engine feels underpowered at times. Renault will be launching a 1.0 litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine with Triber in future.
