Finally Multi Purpose Vehicle the Renault Triber has made its global debut in India. The all-new MPV is based on the CMF-A platform which already tested in Kwid but this time it offers seven-seater car under the four-metre mark. The new Triber comes with a completely new design language to make the car more spacious. The Triber will give the competition to the rivalas including Datsun GO+ and upcoming compact seven-seater from Maruti Suzuki. Renault adjusted a third-row seating and compare the Triber with the B-segment hatchbacks.
Speaking on the global unveil of the Renault Triber, Thierry Bollore, CEO of Groupe Renault said, “India is a key market for Groupe Renault. We are still young to India, yet our ambitions are high in line with our “Drive the Future” strategic plan: we aim at doubling our sales by 2022. For that reason, we are bringing Renault Triber, another breakthrough concept, targeted for Indian’s core market. Renault Triber was conceived, developed and produced in India, for Indian customers first, before we take it to the world. It is a real game-changer.”
The design language of Triber has been evolved from the Kwid. The appearance of the new car is taller and more suitable for urban.
