Renault has been testing the all-new Triber in the Indian market for a long time now. The all-new seven-seater car will be launched in the Indian market in the coming times and will become the second MPV from the brand after the Lodgy. Before the launch, Renault seems to be testing the car on the Indian roads. Recently, it was captured on camera doing more than 100 km/h, which is a surprising speed for a small capacity engine powering the Triber.
The video was taken by Jagadesh Jagan shows the video of the upcoming Renault Triber from a Honda on the highway. The indicated speed as seen on the instrument cluster of the Honda seems to be around 130 km/h when the Renault Triber overtakes another vehicle on the open road. The vehicle can be seen high-speed lane changing moves on the highway and overtake other vehicles on the roads.
The Renault Triber will come with a 999cc, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine that generates a maximum 72 PS of power at 6,250 rpm and 96 Nm of peak torque at 3,500 rpm. Renault will offer a 5-speed manual transmission with the Triber and an Easy-R AMT automatic transmission too. The Triber will be based on the modified platform of the Renault Kwid, which ensures that the vehicle will get a low kerb weight. The low weight of the vehicle ensures a great power-to-weight ratio, which in turn ensures strong acceleration and high speeds even from a small capacity engine.
The Renault Triber will be one of its kind vehicle in India and will get a modular seating option. It will be a seven-seater vehicle and the last row seat of the vehicle can be removed when not in need. Even the last row seats can be removed individually, which helps in ensuring the best seating and space management in the car. Even the second-row seat of the vehicle can be folded individually.
The car will come with a long list of features. It will get a fully-digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment system, which will get connectivity options like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features include a card-type key, cooled glovebox, four airbags, and more. It will be a sub-4m vehicle, which will allow Renault to price it very competitively in the Indian market. It will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and is expected to get a price tag of around Rs 5 lakh.
The Triber has already been spotted testing without camouflage on the Indian roads. The all-new product is expected to become quite popular in the Indian market as seven-seater vehicles are gaining popularity. The car will be targetted at the young buyers in the Indian market.
