Renault is gearing up to launch the sub compact MPV that’s been under test for quite some time now. Known by its codename RBC, it has now been christened to Triber.
The Renault Triber will sit above the Kwid in the car makers line-up and will be a seven seat MPV. Hence it will also be based on the CMF-A platform from Renault Nissan alliance.
The image released by the automaker on its website has clearly revealed a very interesting looking face of the MPV. The Triber gets larger and angular headlights than the ones on the Kwid, a high set bonnet and squarish fog lamp housings.
Spy shots of the car testing have further given us a fair idea of how the production spec Triber will look like. Visible from the heavy camaflouge are bumper mounted daytime running lights, larger front grille and air dam, roof rails and a bigger window area post the B-pillar.
Going by the tagline that the automaker has added in the pic, we understand that the Triber to be India’s first super spacious and ultra modular MPV. Which means the cabin boasts of offering the most space for three rows of seats and transport passengers in comfort.
The Triber should get its power from the 1.0 litre engine borrowed from the Kwid. The motor on the Kwid produces 68ps and 91 Nm of torque However for the Trider we expect the power figures to be bumped up a few notches. Transmission duties are gets a 5-speed manual transmission though Renault could think of introducing an AMT gearbox at a later stage.
