Renault launched the Triber last month as an Indian specific model targeted at the versatile families of our country. One of the major highlights of the Triber is its multiple seat layout solution along with the Easyfix removable third-row seats. The compact MPV is among the cheapest seven-seater vehicles in the country with prices starting from Rs. 4.95 lakhs. The Triber measures under 4 meters in length and is based on the Kwid hatchback’s CMF-A platform. Now, Renault has released its TVC of the Triber featuring the famous Bollywood music composer and director duo Vishal-Shekhar.
The Renault Triber comes in four variants: RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ. Talking about the TVC, It shows Vishal Shekhar driving around in the Triber, apparently on a tour across Rajasthan. On their way, they encounter two folk musicians and offer them lift up till their destination. Being a musician himself, Vishal asks the folk music guys to play out a few beats during the journey. After a fun ride full off music and conversations, the Triber finally reaches a fort where the folk musicians had to perform. Out of courtesy and gratitude, they ask Vishal-Shekhar to join in the fun and the gala begins.
The key takeaway from this TVC is again the versatility of Triber. It shows how the Triber has space for everyone and everything as per the occasion. The car offers seating arrangement for 7 and the second, as well as the third row, can be configured in a ton of ways so as to suit every occasion. Despite being an under 4-meter car, the Triber provides decent space on the inside for 7 passengers, though the last row may be a bit uncomfortable for well-built people over long rides. One of the reasons for the low price of Triber is that it is based on the modified Kwid platform and also uses the same engine, albeit in a more powerful state of tune.
Speaking of which, the Triber uses the same1-litre, 3 cylinder petrol engine that is found on the Kwid. However, on the Triber, this engine churns out 71 Bhp of power along with 96 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox which is the only transmission option available as of now. Renault has confirmed that an AMT box will be launched during the first quarter of 2020.
Bookings for the Triber are already started and Renault has even started the deliveries of the Triber from the day of its launch. Though it does not have any natural rivals at the price point it is positioned at (not considering the Datsun GO+), it will face heat from the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ford Figo, and the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios.
