BORN TO LEAD
RENAULT TRIBER MPV
P. Tharyan

Renault Triber MPV is a seven-seater sub 4 metre vehicle that could bring about a massive change in the lifestyles of middle-class people. With four different variants RXE at one end, RXL, RXT and RXZ, the car costs Rs 4.95 lakh for the lowest variant to Rs 6.49 lakh for the top variant RXZ.

The Triber’s one litre petrol engine is mated to either a 5-speed manual transmission or an Easy-R AMT. We drove the top-end variant that had a manual transmission. So what is the seven – seater like when it comes to features and driving experience? Let’s check it out.

The Triple Edge Chrome front grille with the Renault badge looks cool. There are no fog lamps, instead Renault has put DRLs there. You get projector headlamps but they are halogen.The Triber has a smart new front-bumper, while the bonnet is sculpted. There are front and rear skid plates. The roof rails smartly cover the roof drop. Then there are black plastic wheel arch protections and lower protective door panels. The Triber has a ground clearance of 182 mm.

The side profile of the vehicle is very sporty like an SUV while the vehicle sits on R15 tyres. The lower variants get 165/80/R14 tyres. A lot of features go missing in the lower variants.

The two-part rear Eagle beak tail lamps extend onto the outside of the wings and taper to point to the centre of the tailgate, giving it a wider stance.
