After Lodgy Renault finally launched their 7-seater MUV cum SUV vehicle. The car specs meet the today’s customer demand at an affordable pricing. It has got lots of seating combinations, the thing which is in great demand today and that’s too at an affordable pricing. So, is it really worth it to buy Renault Triber or it’s just a fake advertisement and rumors just to make it on hype? Well, let’s find out in this blog of Review Series!
On the Point:
Triber features a dual VVT (Variable Valve Timing) 1.0L 3-cylinder unit with a displacement around 999cc the engine produces a power of 72HP and 96Nm of torque. The claimed mileage from the company is 19kmpl. Renault Triber comes with manual and Automatic (R-AMT) transmissions.
For more specs refer the Quick specs as under:
On to the front, like other Renault cars Triber gets huge Renault logo placed in the center of the grille which is equipped with chrome finish. The headlights get projector setup along with the halogen indicators and foglamps. The overall design looks nice and bold as compared from the market in this segment.
The side profile is also decent and Renault has intelligently managed to make this under 4m MUV segment. The wheel mounts on the sides have been finished through the body cladding on the top of which the side indicators has been placed. The rear side looks also decent with the stretched tail lamps along with the Triber written at the rear center.
Starting off with the dashboard, it really looks premium irrespective of its price tag. It is dual tone with a 20.32cm of infotainment system of which Renault call as ‘Media Nav’ it supports Apple car play and Android Auto as connectivity options.
On to the driver’s side it gets steering mounted audio controls and LED integrated digital instrument cluster in which the Tachometer is digital or is made of LED’s along with the fuel gauge and temperature meter.
The speedometer is all digital and is placed at the center with a mini display which is ofcourse there for some important information about the vehicle. The driver seat gets height adjust function too and the vehicle gets a smart access card instead of just a regular key.
Moreover, there are plenty of storage spaces available inside the vehicle especially in the front most compartment including the bottle holders which are also there on the rear, in the central control which features cooled box too and at last the two glove boxes the one in which is the cooled one.
Jumping on to the second row there is actually great amount of legroom on offer with a decent underthy support and also there are no worries about the headroom as the roof just got intelligently lifted for the rear passengers. The second-row seats feature air vents with a controlling switch and also the seat can be split in 60:40 ratio.
On to the third row which is kinda main highlight of the vehicle, as it can be removed to increase the boot carrying capacity of the vehicle. The row also gets their own independent air vents which are placed on the roof of the vehicles. However, the third-row passengers don’t get an option to control their AC settings. The third-row seat is good in terms of headroom but lags the underthy support and features decent legroom which is very unique for a car in this segment.
The third-row seats can be removed and can be packed into the seat bags which are provided by Renault as an optional accessory.
Well, Renault Triber can be the most value for money option in the Indian market but it has got its limitations too which are:
- Engine Options: Triber is available in 1.0L VVT engine option which is not the best especially when it’s come to 6 or 7 seating option. Renault have at least provided 1.5L as an optional engine configuration which gives more power to the vehicle.
- Auto dimming: Renault should have also given an auto dimming function in IRVM’s which is kinda mandatory in the cars offered toady in this segment.
- Third Row seats: The third-row seats which is claimed by Renault that they can be easily removed and installed, well its not the case at all it requires efforts to actually remove the seats completely and to put them in the bag. Moreover, the bags also take much of the boot space, so I think its kinda pointless to literally remove and carry them with you.
Conclusion: Buy it or not?
Frankly speaking it’s a great value for money and there’s no doubt in this! If you are willing to buy a family MUV or a safe family MUV and you don’t care much about power then it would be a great option, just go for it then. But if you want power too and extra space without much of efforts then it’s not a great option for you.
