French automaker Renault will soon launch the segment starter Triber compact MPV in the Indian market. However, before launch, the brand has released a video explaining the features of their upcoming MPV. In the video one can see the brand expand on the multipurpose nature of the upcoming MPV in the Indian market. As per the brand, the Triber is as wide as the bigger MPVs in the market and the second row seats of the MPV can also be slided and folded as per the need of the user. The third row seats are also movable and can be removed altogether as well. As already, expected the third row users will also get a taste of features like armrests and charging points.
The video also states the Triber's dash comes with an all-digital instrument cluster, central air conditioning system, 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support and more. The Triber also gets class-leading headroom and boot space without the third-row in place. The new Renault Triber is based on the modified iteration of CMF-A platform. CMF-A (common module family-A) is the affordable platform that the French company came up with for developing markets. The sub-4 metre length of the Triber ensures that it will benefit from the tax regime of the country and hence will fit the budget of many hatchback buyers in the Indian market.
Renault Triber will be a petrol only car in the Indian market but the company has not fully revealed the engine details of the car as of now. However, the Triber will come with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. The output for the petrol engine could be in the range of 72 Bhp and 96 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. However, the company has not confirmed the same as of now.
The French automaker is likely to price the MPV in the very affordable Rs. 5-7 lakh mark, affordable for the MPV segment at least. With this new launch the company is looking at starting a new segment in the country because at the aforementioned price point, the Triber will be a unique offering in the market that will come in the price range of a mid-size hatchback but it will also offer seating for 7 and a lot of storage space if the seating is modified for 5 users. The loaded cabin along with the large amount of space inside and the adjustable nature of seats in the MPV arms it with even more ammo to take on hatchbacks in the market.
