The much-anticipated Renault Triber has been launched in Nepal. The ultra-modular 7-seater MPV features a lot of premium bits in addition to an excellent design language. The niche offering from Renault competes in the market with the likes of Datsun GO+, Ford Freestyle, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, and the Maruti Suzuki Swift. The customers can avail the Renault Triber in 5 colour variants namely: Metal Mustard, Electric Blue, Fiery Red, Moonlight Silver, and Ice Cool White.
The ultra-modular tag of the MPV is justified by the 50:50 split at the second row while it gets a 60:40 split at the third row. The MPV can be further used as a 5-seater by removing the third row. The five-seater mode of the MPV has been christened as ‘Life Mode’ by Renault where the passengers have access to 625 litres of boot space. On the other hand, the 7-seater ‘Tribe Mode’ offers the passengers only 84 litres of boot space.
The front fascia of the Renault Triber features a Kwid-inspired grille mated to projector headlamps. The unique LED DRLs at the bottom of the headlights adds to its exclusivity while the muscular stance of the MPV is enhanced by body cladding on the sides. The split tail lamps at the rear further add to its sporty exterior.
The Renault Triber measures 3990mm in length, 1739mm in width and 1643mm in height. It gets a wheelbase of 2636mm while the ground clearance stands at 182mm. The fuel tank capacity of the 7-seater MPV is 40-litres.
Powering the Renault Triber is a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine capable of churning out a maximum power of 72HP and a peak torque of 96Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The brand is expected to offer the MPV with a 5-speed AMT gearbox shortly though, no official confirmation has been made yet.
The suspension duties on the MPV are handled by Pseudo McPherson strut with lower triangle & coil spring at the front while the rear features torsion beam axle suspension. The Renault Triber gets disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear.
In terms of safety, all variants of Renault Triber come with three-point seat belts on all rows, ABS, reverse parking sensors, and dual front airbags. In addition to these features, the top-spec variants also get front-side airbags and a rear parking camera.
