French automaker Renault is all set to bring out their latest sub-4 meter compact MPV in the Indian market. The company has already revealed that their latest offering in the Indian market will be named as the Triber. The MPV has already been spied several time during testing and the final unveil of the vehicle will take place just next month. The much awaited MPV from the brand will be an all-new car for the Indian market and will lock horns with the likes of Datsun GO+ and the rumoured Maruti Suzuki WagonR 7-seater model. As far as the company’s line-up is concerned, the upcoming MPV will be placed between Duster SUV and Kwid hatchback in the line-up. Now the company has released a teaser for the same in the Indian market.
Based on the modified iteration of CMF-A platform, the actual launch of the MPV is supposed to take place sometime around the festive season this year. CMF-A (common module family-A) is the affordable platform that the French company came up with for developing markets. One can already find Renault Kwid and Datsun RediGo in the Indian market that are based on the same platform. The French automaker has also confirmed that their upcoming MPV will be small but will not be smaller than 4 meters. This will lead to higher tax on the upcoming Triber in the Indian market. This could mean that the upcoming Triber will be a value for money offering in the segment, just like the Datsun Go+ stationwagon, with a 5+2 seating pattern. However, unlike the Datsun Go+, the Renault Triber will offer more space in the third row.
The Triber will come with removable third row of seats which will in turn offer more flexibility to the users as they can carry luggage or passengers as per their wishes. Triber will also come with an upmarket interior which will give the users more premium feel as compared to other MPVs in the range. Likely features on the upcoming Triber will include a touch infotainment display with connectivity options and dual tone interiors as well as some propped up interiors.
Renault has still not disclosed the engine details of the Triber, although the car has been spotted during testing many times in India. However, there are rumors on the internet that indicate that the new MPV from French automaker could come only with a petrol engine. Renault could bring the Triber with its Kwid’s 1.0-litre petrol engine. The output for the petrol engine could be in the range of 67 Bhp and 91 Nm. The AMT version of this upcoming MPV has also been spotted testing, therefore an AMT is sure to be offered with the car along with a manual gearbox. The expected launch price for the upcoming MPV could be in the range of Rs. 5 lakhs to Rs. 6.5 lakhs. This could mean that the Triber could be a unique offering the market as far as the price is concerned, and could make its mark in the sub-4 meter segment in India.
