Renault Triber Latest Updates
The Renault Triber will be launched in India this month as a super spacious and 'ultra-modular' car. The idea is that unlike most MPVs that focus on functionality and offering that much touted 7-seater tag read Datsun GO+ or Maruti Suzuki Ertiga), the Triber will be all about the flexibility and will get a segment-first removable third-row seat. The car will have an easily removable third row that is expected to have a manual folding and unlatching operation that would be simple for most people to carry out easily. This will allow for the modularity aspect that is being promised - wherein you could opt for seating space for 7 passengers, or a larger amount of boot volume for more cargo space - as per your needs.
The car's second row will fold forward to allow access to the third row of course. The Triber's taller roof height and wide crossover-like proportions will allow Renault to pitch it as the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza rival? It will certainly challenge the Honda WR-V head-on. The RBC turned Renault Triber is based on a slightly modified version of Renault's CMF-A platform. The Kwid and Datsun rediGO are also based on CMF-A, but the big difference between those cars and the Triber will be the crash capability and higher levels of safety all around. In equipment terms, the Triber is expected with ABS and dual-airbags standard. Its higher variants are also likely to feature ESC or an electronic stability control programme.
The Triber will have a wide spread of variants we are told, and so expect aggressive pricing at the low end, and very high feature rich top varieties, with touchscreen connectivity, a sunroof and climate control. The Triber's platform will help Renault and Nissan to develop economies of scale in India, with similar parts and aggregates being used towards other future models. The next generation of the Renault Kwid, Datsun GO and rediGo, and a premium hatch that is expected to replace the ageing Nissan Micra - especially since Nissan has virtually no presence in the hatchback space as it is.
