The Renault Triber will make its global debut in Delhi on June 19.

  • Will be underpinned by a derivative of the Kwid’s CMF-A platform.

  • Will feature projector headlamps with LED DRLs, touchscreen infotainment and four airbags.

  • Likely to be powered by Micra’s 1.2-litre petrol or a turbocharged version of the Kwid’s 1.0-litre unit

  • Likely to be priced from Rs 5.5 lakh; will not have any direct rivals.

  • Renault is set to reveal the Triber in India on June 19. The carmaker says it will have a unique body style that cannot be simplified into a generic category. While the air is blurry around the body style of the Triber, its spy images suggest an MPV-like stance. In Renault’s portfolio, the Triber will bridge the gap between the Kwid and others like the Duster and Lodgy. The sub-4m Triber will be underpinned by a new platform, which is likely to be derived from the Kwid’s CMF-A unit.

    The Renault Triber’s USP will be a modular cabin, so it might offer seating for more than five passengers. Expect a foldable third row which could further be utilised for improving storage space. Renault claims that the Triber will offer segment-best cabin space too.

    The spy shots we have seen confirm that the Triber will feature projector headlamps with LED daytime running lamps, 15-inch wheels, dual tone black and beige interior layout with chrome and silver accents, a touchscreen infotainment screen along with an option of four airbags.

    The Renault Triber is expected to feature a turbocharged version of the 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine on the Kwid. We can’t rule out the possibility of a naturally-aspirated version to power its lower variants. At the same time, the 1.2-litre petrol engine that powers the Nissan Micra and the Datsun GO cannot be taken out of contention for now. Like the Kwid, Renault might offer a manual as well as an AMT gearbox option with the Triber. And with the BS6 emission norms set to be implemented soon, the Renault Triber may not feature a diesel engine under its hood.

    The Renault Triber is expected to be priced from Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh. It will not have any direct rivals at that range and Renault could pitch the Triber as an alternative to the Datsun GO+ or the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga.
