The Renault Triber will be positioned between the Kwid and Duster.
It is expected to be priced between Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Triber will be offered with a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder BS4-compliant petrol engine.
Renault will offer the Triber with a 5-speed manual gearbox as well as an AMT option.
The Triber will rival the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 and Ford Figo, among others.
The booking amount has been set at Rs 11,000; it can be booked via Renault’s dealership or website.
The Renault Triber is scheduled to launch on August 28 and bookings of the compact crossover MPV are already underway for a token amount of Rs 11,000. You can reserve yours through Renault dealerships or the company’s official website. If you are looking to put your money down on the upcoming Renault offering, it’s imperative that you have a better idea about its pricing to make a better buying decision. But before we take a look at the expected prices, let’s go through its features and engine highlights.
The Renault Triber will be a petrol-only offering equipped with a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder unit that delivers 72PS of power and 96Nm of torque. It will be available with two transmission choices - a 5-speed manual and an optional AMT. Claimed fuel efficiency figures are 20kmpl (MT) and 20.5kmpl (AMT).
Inside, the Renault Triber features three rows of seating along with a smart key card, push button start/stop, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 3.5-inch MID as well as a digital LED instrument cluster, up to four airbags and a refrigerator (first-in-segment).
Removing the third row fully gives a cavernous boot space of 625 litres, which is more than double the luggage capacity of some of its rivals. But how much will the Triber cost when launched? Let’s take a look at the expected variants and their prices.

We expect the Renault Kwid to be priced in the Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh bracket. While Renault hasn’t officially conveyed any variant details, the Triber is likely to be offered in the same list of variants as the Kwid.
