Renault India has launched the BSVI compliant version of its latest offering, the Renault Triber MPV. Prices for the Triber have now increased by Rs 4,000 to Rs 29,000 depending on the variant. The base RXE trim now costs Rs 4.99 lakh and this goes up to Rs 6.78 lakh for the top RXZ version.
The engine specifications have remained unchanged.Â The Triber's 999cc Energy engine makesÂ 72PS at 6,250rpm andÂ 96Nm at 3,500rpm, currently paired with a 5-speed manual. It is also known that Renault is working on an AMT version of the Triber, that is expected to be launched in the next few months.Â We expect the AMT box to be available in the top two variants, RXT and RXZ. Like in the Kwid, this version could do away with a traditional shifter and get a rotary dial for gear selection. Renault has already revealed the Triber AMT's fuel-efficiency figures to be 20.5kmpl.
It is also expected that Renault will introduce a new 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor for the Triber around the same time as the AMT version. This could be derived from the TCe 100 motor already available internationally in the Renault Clio and the Nissan Micra. This motor is already Euro-6DTemp compliant abroad, equivalent to our BSVI norms. The motor puts out up to 100PS and 160Nm.
The Renault Triber was launched in India in August 2019 and has been a big success, over 10,000 units were sold within two months of launch.Â The Triber sits on a heavily reworked version of the CMF-A platform. It has been specifically designed for the India market and has been jointly developed by the firm's French and Indian teams.Â Dimensionally, it is 3,990mm long, 1,739mm wide and 1,643mm tall. The wheelbase is 2,636mm. Boot space is between 84 litres and 625 litres. Five colour options are available. The 7-seater MPV's USP is its highly flexible seating arrangement, which includes a pair of third-row seats that can be removed completely. The BSVI compliant mid-spec RXL and RXT now cost Rs 5.74 lakh and Rs 6.24 lakh respectively.
