Renault Triber on sale in India has been crash tested by Global NCAP – It scored 4 star safety for adult occupants and 3 star for child occupants
One of the best selling Renault car in India, Triber is a 7 seater UV which is based on the Kwid platform. The same Kwid which was described as structurally unsafe car by Global NCAP in its initial years. Over the years, Renault has worked in the right direction – which has resulted in the platform scoring a respectable 4 star adult safety rating in Global NCAP crash test today.
In doing so, Renault Triber has now equalled cars like Thar, Polo, Marazzo, Brezza, Tiago, Tigor – all of whom have scored 4 star safety rating for adult occupants. Nissan Magnite too has scored 4 star rating, but that is via ASEAN NCAP and not Global NCAP.
