The Renault Triber is a sub-four metre mini MPV, which is among the bestselling vehicles in the business. This vehicle is designed keeping Indian roads in mind. As you would expect, this MPV has a three-row layout, which caters to family-oriented buyers. At the same time, it is also budget-friendly, especially when it comes to serving purposes.
Interestingly, the French car manufacturer developed the Renault Triber on its in-house designed Renault-Nissan CMF-A+ platform that underpins other Renault cars, such as the Kiger and the Kwid. In addition, the Nissan Magnite is also built on the same platform. The only direct rival to the Triber is the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. That said, the top model of the Triber can get you the base variant of the Ertiga.
Furthermore, the Renault Triber doesn’t offer a factory-fitted CNG kit. But, if you plan to put this vehicle on your wishlist, below are a few highlights you should keep in mind. Let’s begin knowing this French MPV, then!
Engine and other Specifications
As mentioned earlier, there are no diesel and CNG versions. Built on the CMF-A+ platform, this vehicle is powered by a 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated, three-cylinder petrol engine that is tuned to churn out 71 bhp at 6250 rpm and 96 Nm of peak torque at 3500 rpm. It seems that the carmaker has followed the “less power less consumption” philosophy.
Moreover, the 2023 iteration has an improved version of the BS6 engine, which is known as the BS6 Phase 2 compliance. There are also rumours that this vehicle might get a turbo-petrol variant as well. This vehicle has a fuel tank capacity of 40 litres.
It mostly sends power to its front wheels, as it is a front-wheel drive, via a standard five-speed manual gearbox and an optional five-speed AMT. Being a three-row vehicle, the Renault Triber doesn’t seem to have adequate engine output. It may let you lament about the power, especially on steep hills.
As far as the mileage figures are concerned, the Renault Triber has an ARAI-certified mileage ranging from 18.2 km/l to 19 km/l, depending upon the transmission chosen. However, the real-world mileage figures of the manual and automatic versions are 17.4 km/l and 18.5 km/l, respectively. Please note that the real-world mileage figures are as per the feedback from the owners.
Apart from the engine output, the Renault Triber has a comfort-oriented suspension setup, as MPVs are usually designed keeping comfort in mind. That said, it has a McPherson Strut with Lower Triangle and Coil Spring at the front and Torsion Beam Axle at the rear. With this setup, the Renault Triber shouldn’t let you complain about the rideability it has on offer. At the same, it can easily absorb the bumps from the potholes, due to which it can glide through smoothly without letting the rear passengers jostle much. Further, this suspension setup works in tandem with a disc-drum brake setup. You will these brakes behind the standard steel rims of 15 inches. Speaking of the proportion, this vehicle has a tyre profile of 185/65 R15. It misses out on an option for alloy wheels.
So, these are a few offerings in terms of specifications, but you can, however, check out the curated list of specifications and compare it with its rivals on the autoX website. That said, you can check out the Triber’s price list too.
Now, let’s jump to the Renault Triber features.
Once you ingress, the Triber will welcome you with a dual-tone interior with plastic and fabric treatments.
Don’t expect a fancy interior with leather treatments, due to which, it may not be of everyone’s liking. The Renault Kiger has a fully digital instrument cluster, which shows relevant readings, such as an average speed, distance to empty, a digital clock, low fuel level warning, gear indicator, and door ajar warning. In addition, there is a multi-function steering wheel through which you can control a few entertainment features or pick up/decline calls.
Besides that, if you are on a trip and you want to quench your thirst, you can make use of the cooled glove box, as you can store your beverages there.
As far as the entertainment features are concerned, the cockpit’s centre will greet you with an integrated eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additionally, it has compatibility with Bluetooth and USB.
For added convenience, the Renault Triber bags an electric tailgate release, front door pockets, electrically adjustable ORVMs with indicators, and a one-touch (up and down) window (driver side only). But, everyone will have their power window. Moreover, the French carmaker also offers optional ambient lighting, alongside optional puddle lamps. Last but not least, you will also find 12V charging sockets on three panels inside the car. Besides that, the Renault Triber has only a tilt-function steering wheel.
As for exterior illumination, the Renault Triber has a halogen-projector light at the front, alongside LED DRLs. Further, you will also get halogen lights at the rear and in foglights. The top model, however, should have had LED lights, as you know, those lights usually make the car look more upmarket.
On the safety front, the Renault Triber has a tyre pressure monitoring system, seat belt warnings, and an overspeed warning. Further, it includes an ABS, EBD, ESP, traction control, and hill assist. You also get an engine immobiliser, remote central locking, and speed-sensing door lock, alongside a child-safety lock. In addition, this MUV also offers sun visors with vanity mirrors, manually-adjustable anti-glare IRVM, and a reverse camera with rear ultrasonic sensors. Speaking of the reverse camera, you won’t get parking guidelines, though.

The Renault Triber’s price starts at Rs 6.33 lakh for the base model, the RXE, and it goes up to Rs 8.97 lakh for the top model, the RXZ EASY-R AMT DT.
