The new Renault Triber made its global reveal in India today. The new model has been designed and developed specifically for India. The “Triber” name is inspired by the word ‘tribe’ which talks about the car’s virtues of ferrying a group of people around and the fact that it hopes to kick-start a new segment of cars in India. It has been designed to cater to the needs of the Indian car buyers and, with this car, Renault have fulfilled their ambition to enter the busting B-segment in India.

The Renault Triber looks smart and sleek, thanks to the car’s taut lines, rather steeply-inclined windscreen, and rear window with a tapering roof-line toward the rear. The Triber gets a set of projector headlamps and also sports LED daytime running lights circled in chrome, and black headlamp masks, all of which add to the car’s sophisticated look. It also comes with a triple-edge chrome front grille that extends to the car’s headlamps. At the rear, the design language is carried on with a set of two-part eagle-beak tail-lamps, that extend to outwards and taper towards the centre of the tail-gate. Other design details includes a sculpted bonnet, front and rear skid-plates, roof rails and blacked-out wheel arches, all of which combine to give the car a rugged appeal and augment its capability.

Inside, the Renault Triber cabin exudes a warm ambience thanks to the two-tone colour scheme which transitions from deep black for the upper section of the dashboard to a beige-and-white tone for the lower section and the door trims. The car also features chrome garnish on the air-vents, air-conditioning control dials and the start/stop button, along with silver trim-accents on the dashboard.

The new Renault Triber is based on the Kwid’s CMF-A (Compact Modular Front) platform and will come powered by a new 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, VVT petrol engine; similar to the unit in the Clio. It is capable of producing 72 PS at 6,250 rpm and has a peak torque of 96 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The Renault Triber will be available with either a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed EASY-R automated manual transmission (AMT).

The new Renault Triber is not a stretched version of the Kwid, but is said to be designed from scratch to give it flexible seating and a spacious cabin (Also read: 2019 Renault Kwid Gets New Infotainment System and Safety Kit). The Renault Triber offers sliding, reclining and folding as well as tumbling second-row seats, and also benefits from large door opening angles. The Triber also features industry-first EasyFix seats, which allow for easy handling and removal of the two independent third-row seats. The Renault Triber offers a total of 100-plus different configurations for immense flexibility.

The Renault Triber boasts of a voluminous boot, a USP of the car. It offers best-in-class boot capacity of 625 litres in the five-seat configuration, with that going to 320 litres for the six-seat configuration and 84 litres for the seven-seat configuration.

Speaking on the occasion of the new Renault Triber’s global reveal, Thierry BollorĂ©, CEO of Groupe Renault, said, “India is a key market for Groupe Renault. We are still young to India, yet our ambitions are high in line with our ‘Drive the Future’ strategic plan: we aim at doubling our sales by 2022. For that reason we are bringing Renault Triber, another breakthrough concept, targeted for India’s core market. Renault Triber was conceived, developed and produced in India, for Indian customers first, before we take it to world. It is a real game-changer.”

The new Renault Triber will be manufactured at the brand’s plant in Chennai and sold in the Indian market in the second half of 2019. Renault have not officially revealed the price of the car, but we expect something in the Rs 5-7 lakh bracket.
