Renault has no official plan to introduce an adventure edition of the Triber. This is purely a speculative rendering
Renault Triber compact MPV came as the much needed shot in the arm for the French automaker in India. The product addresses an unexplored niche with a good design, right kind of packaging and an attractive price tag. The vehicle quickly emerged as the best selling model in Renault India’s portfolio, even surpassing the Kwid.
With demand for private vehicles starting to recover at a steady pace, value-for-money people movers like the Renault Triber are expected to benefit significantly. Hopefully, the situation in Chennai where Renault has its factory will improve enough to allow the company to resume full fledged production soon.
While Renault’s designers have done a good job of giving the Triber a modern SUV-ish appeal, it still has potential for further sprucing up. If you are open to the idea of aftermarket customization of your Triber, then this speculative rendering by SRK Designs would give you some nice suggestions.
Renault Triber Adventure Sport
Called the Renault Triber Adventure edition, this sporty rendering also gives us ideas on how a possible special edition could look like. The car’s crossover design lines go well with the rough-road package shown in the rendering.
The designer has replaced the Triber’s conventional front fascia with a much sportier elements. It has to be said that the two-tier headlamp configuration which is currently in the vogue suits the rest of the design very well.
Despite the complete overhaul of the front end, the Renault Triber adventure edition manages to preserve the brand’s design identity, thanks to the trough-shaped grille and prominent chrome lozenge.
To add a rugged appeal to the car, the designer has added a roof-rack with LED spotlights, new multi-spoke alloy wheels with off-road tyres. We would imagine that these modifications are good enough to make the Triber feel at home under mild off-road conditions.
Renault Triber specifications
The compact seven seater is powered by a diminutive 1.0-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated engine which outputs 72 hp and 96 Nm of torque. The motor is available with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed Easy-R AMT. Given that the vehicle has to carry seven passengers, the engine could do with a turbocharger but Renault’s priority is pricing. Speaking of which, the Triber starts at INR 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
Renault is also working on a sub-4m SUV named Kiger which is reported to use a turbocharged version of the same engine. Perhaps the more powerful version may eventually find its way on to a new top-end variant of the Triber down the line.
