Updated to BS6 emission norms in late-January, the Easy-R automatic Renault Triber employs a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine. It is good for 71bhp and 96Nm of torque. These figures are not particularly impressive since the Triber has to carry seven passengers with decent comfort despite being compact in dimensions. Renault India is expected to launch a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine in the coming months. The same unit will also serve its duty on the upcoming Renault HBC subcompact crossover.
Venkatram Mamillapalle, MD & CEO of Renault India, stated that the Triber’s new AMT version will help enhance its USPs: Flexible, Attractive and Affordable. AMT powertrains are becoming popular in India due to the convenience they offer to the end consumer as well as the relative ease of engineering by the manufacturer.
He further added that innovation is a top priority in Renault India’s business strategy. The brand aims to cater to newer and growing vehicle segments in India at all times. With the Triber, Renault’s engineering and design departments “redefined the conventional notions of the Indian automotive industry”. As a result, the Renault Triber has become a prime example of efficient automotive packaging.
Notable features of the mini-MPV include an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, driver-seat height adjustment, power-adjustable ORVMs, keyless entry, etc. However, the highlight remains the flexible second- and third-row seating configurations.
The Renault Triber does not have a direct rival but several premium alternatives. It starts the entry point for India’s 7-seater portfolio — ruled by the likes of the Toyota Innova Crysta, Mahindra Marazzo and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.
