Expected, the Renault’s new model, the Compact Seven-seater would be based on the CMF-A platform and would be powered by an updated 1.0-litre petrol engine and would have lots of features.
The French multinational automobile manufacturer, Renault, has got its upcoming compact seven-seater model named as the ‘Triber’ which has been earlier called out by its codename, RBC. The ‘Triber’ is the modified version of the Kwid’s CMF-A platform and is expected to hit the Showrooms around July and would fall under the price brac of Rs. 5.3 lakh to 8 lakh. The teaser for this model has been released which shows the Triber’s silhouette, upright bonnet and large front bumper.
The Model that came earlier, Datsun Go+ which had been the stretched version of the Go model and offers an extra row of seats. But the Model Triber from Renault has been given a fresh look and is equipped with more functional design which would be possibly offering its users a lot more space in the smallest possible space.
The brand Renault is expected to offer its customers with Triber premium touches like LED daytime running lamps, a large grille with chrome inserts as well as chrome bits on the front bumper. Talking about the most important section, i.e, the interiors which would sport dual-tone and the steering wheel along with other controls would be shared with the Renault Capture.
So far as the infotainment segment is concerned, the MPV would be coming with a large touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new Renault Triber could be expected to be offering dual front airbags and some variants of the model would also be equipped with the side airbags. The additional attraction to this model is the rear parking sensors, a reverse camera and a speed warning system.
As there is an ample amount of seat made available to the Customers, the third row of seats gets a dedicated set of air-con vents which could be removed for an extra luggage space. The new Renault Triber would be getting a more powerful iteration of the Kwid’s 1.0-litre (BR10) three-cylinder petrol engine under the hood. If we believe the sources, they say that this version from Renault would offer 7hp more power than the seven-seater.
The Engine comes mated to the Kwid’s 5-speed manual transmission along with a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) likely to join the range in the near future. More powerful turbocharged version of the BR10 engine is under process but would be expected next year and not now.
There is no direct competition to Triber which makes it a unique product which is a blend of the versatility of an MPV and the compactness and ease of use of a hatchback.
