Renault Triber which was launched earlier this year is the most affordable 7-seater MPV that one can currently buy in the country. This sub-4 meter MPV is based on CMF-A platform on which Renault Kwid is build. The Triber is a good looking, well proportioned MPV that uses Renault’s latest design language. Higher variants of the Triber is decently equipped when it comes to features, but what about the lower trims?, well here we have a walkaround video of the lower RXE variant.
The video starts by showing the exterior of Triber. Compared to the higher variants, the RXE variant misses out on LED DRLS, Silver skid plate, Alloy wheel like wheel caps, chrome on the door handles, black masking on the door that resembles side cladding, body colour RVMs and the roof rails. It continues to get projector headlamp setup, rear parking sensors, chrome at the front grille and the chrome strip at the boot lid as well. There is also a provision for installing a roof rails which is missing in lower trims.
Coming inside, the interiors is totally stripped down. Unlike higher trims where it gets silver inserts at places like on the dash board, steering wheel , AC vents and gear knob, the RXE trim gets an all black dual tone cabin. There is no infotainment system on offer as well. There is however a provision for installing an aftermarket music system with places to install four speakers on the door. Push button start and power window for the rear passenger is also not offered in RXE trim. Apart from that everything remains the same.
Higher trims of the Triber offer features like touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple carPlay, parking sensors with rear parking camera, airbags, ABS. Triber is an extremely practical car. It comes as a 7-seater and the second-row of seats can be folded down when not needed. Third row of seats can also be removed completely to make more boot space.
Triber comes with the same 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine that powers the Kwid. In Triber it tuned slightly different. It produces a maximum power of 71 Bhp and peak torque of 96 Nm. It gets a five-speed manual transmission but there is no AMT automatic transmission even as an option. Renault will soon offer a 1 liter turbo petrol engine with the Triber, which is also expected to get an AMT option by the middle of this year.
