Renault will unveil the Triber 7-seater MPV on June 19. This will mark the global debut of the Triber. However, an India launch is expected to be scheduled sometime in July this year.
The Triber is essentially an MPV version of the Kwid hatchback. It is based on a modified version of Renault’s CMF-A architecture. This is the same platform that underpins the Kwid. While the French automaker has been tight-lipped about this upcoming launch, sources suggest that it will be a sub 4-metre offering with 7 seats.
The Renault Triber is likely to be priced in the range of Rs. 5.5 – 8 lakh (ex-showroom). It will thus be placed a slot higher than the Kwid in Renault’s Indian portfolio. On the outside, we expect the Triber MPV to come with new swept-back headlights, LED daytime running lights and a V-shaped front grille.

In the interiors department, a dual-tone black and beige colour scheme will be on offer. Some parts, like the switches, knobs and steering wheel are expected to be borrowed from the Captur. Features on offer will include a 7.0-inch touchscreen system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Moreover, occupant safety will be taken care of by dual airbags, ABS with EBD and ISOFIX child seat mounts. Reverse parking sensors and a speed warning indicator will be standard. Additionally, a rear parking camera will be on offer on higher variants.
Powering the Renault Triber will be a retuned version of the Kwid’s 1.0-litre, three cylinder petrol engine. This block will develop close to 75 PS of power. A 5-speed manual gearbox will be offered as standard. Additionally, there’s also a possibility of a 5-speed AMT to be added at a later date.
