Get A Closer Look At The Renault Triber, A 4-Meter Long, 7-Seat Crossover For India

As of last week, Renault has tapped deeper into the Indian market with the introduction of the Triber. Developed for and sold exclusively in India, it measures just under 4 meters (157 in) long, though it claims to have the ability to carry up to seven occupants.

You might be tempted to think that the third row is only accessible to small kids, but in spite of the small proportions, the Triber can actually squeeze in seven adults, at the expense of the cargo capacity. With seating for five, which requires the removal of the third row, boot space is quite generous at 625 liters (22.1 cu-ft).

The rest of the interior is very basic, yet modern including an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, LED digital gauges and air conditioning. Storage spaces are abundant and there are plenty of air vents scattered throughout the interior, so nobody will have to sweat or be cold.

On the downside, the engine seems too small for a 7-seater, but that’s only an assumption, as nobody outside Renault has driven it yet. It’s powered by a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder unit, rated at 72 PS (71 hp / 53 kW) at 6,250 rpm (!) and 96 Nm (71 lb-ft) of torque, available at 3,500 rpm. Customers will have to settle for a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.

What else is there to know about it, aside from the price, which has yet to be released? Autocar India took a closer look at it and came up with a walkaround video that’s only a mouse-click away. So, if you want to know more about Renault’s India-only car designed in the 21st century, then you know what to do.

    “4 meter long 7 seater “. That’s for monkeys, not for human beings.

  • 7 seats in 4m… was expecting worst than that. Still looks exactly the kind of car I wouldn’t enjoy driving.

    Thats what i said in the previous article, 1.0 3 Cylinder carrying 7 people. While i like Renault cars i think this is a bust, even if they used their old 1.6 16v petrol as in the Duster it would have more of a chance like the Honda BRV, not ideal or still not good enough but way better than the turbo 1.0 motor. I though steep incline and 7 people and was like oh no.
