The Renault Triber has just been updated to meet the stricter BS6 emission norms, with prices now starting at Rs 4.99 lakh. While the entry-level model’s price has increased by Rs 4,000, the top-spec Triber RxZ variant now costs Rs 29,000 more than its BS4 counterpart. We have compiled the variant-wise price break-up below:
|Renault Triber prices (ex-showroom, Delhi)|
|Variant||BS6 Price||BS4 Prices||Difference|
|RxE||Rs 4.99 lakh||Rs 4.95 lakh||Rs 4,000|
|RxL||Rs 5.74 lakh||Rs 5.49 lakh||Rs 25,000|

The Triber uses a BS6-compliant version of the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 72hp and 96Nm of torque. The engine is offered with a sole 5-speed manual gearbox option. In BS4 form, the Triber had an ARAI fuel efficiency figure of 20kpl. It’ll be interesting to see if that changes.
There have been no changes to its features list as top-spec Tribers continue to get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, a digital instrument cluster, AC vents in all three rows, a cooled centre box, keyless entry, push-button start/stop, power windows, projector headlamps with LED DRLs and more.
In terms of safety, all Tribers come with three-point seat belts on all rows, ABS, reverse parking sensors and at least two airbags. Additionally, top-spec variants get the added safety of front-side airbags and a rear parking camera.
As we had previously reported, the Triber will also get a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine option by March 2020. Renault is also working on an AMT automatic gearbox option for the Triber.
