Available in a single petrol powertrain, which of the Renault Triber’s four variants make sense for you?

Renault has launched the Triber in India at prices ranging between Rs 4.95 lakh and Rs 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom India). It is available in a choice of four variants (RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ) and a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. But which one of the crossover MPV’s variants is the most sensible pick for you? Read on to find out.

Verdict

For the price that it commands, it will be unfair to put a finger on this variant of the Triber. It covers the basics but packs in all the practical seating that’ s bundled up with even the top-spec Triber. However, that’s not the only point that needs to be factored in while buying a car. It misses out on some convenience features and an audio system that you can get in the higher variants. Moreover, the premium to pay isn’t sky-high and it also undercuts mid-size hatchbacks like the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Ford Figo.

This variant is for those who are already stretching their budget from a small car to the more accommodating Triber and can’t go any further. But if you want better safety and feel-good features, keep on reading.

RXL: Misses out on necessities

Premium over RXE

Rs 54,000

Verdict

The Triber RXL gets a few necessities and even the segment-first centrally placed large cooled storage and rear AC offering vents for 2nd and 3rd row with separate blower control at an acceptable price premium of Rs 54,000. The additional premium might seem justified but since you’re buying a 5+2-seater, it would be better that you get decent equipment for all three passenger rows. Moreover, it misses out on a couple of basic necessities like day/night IRVM (inside rearview mirror) and height-adjustable driver’s seat, which in fact, will be missing even if you buy the top variant of the Triber. So for a better experience, we’d suggest you skip this variant and look further.

RXT: Advisable but not without its limitations

 

Prices

RXT

Rs 5.99 lakh

Premium over RXL

Rs 50,000

Exterior: Chrome front grille, roof rails with 50kg load capacity, front and rear skid plates and electrically adjustable ORVMs.

Interior: Front air vents get chrome

Comfort & Convenience: Rear power windows, front seatback pockets, day/night IRVM, rear roof light, two glove boxes- one cooled, drawer under driver seat, vanity mirror- passenger side, 12V socket- 2nd row, LED instrument cluster with chrome garnish

Audio: 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and 2 additional rear speakers.

Verdict

When you stretch for the Triber RXT, you get better equipment not just for the driver but also for the second-row passengers. It does justify the additional price premium and will improve your ownership experience in the long run. But it continues to weirdly miss out on features like fog lamps, steering-integrated audio controls and driver seat height adjust which can be had in the rivals at a similar price point. If you can look past these limitations then you may go for it. 

But if you have already stretched so far, we would suggest you look at the top-spec RXZ not just for the additional vanity features but for safety goodies like side airbags and rear parking camera. 

RXZ: Continues missing on features but is still the variant of our choice

 

Prices

RXZ

Rs 6.49 lakh

Premium over RXT

Rs 50,000

Exterior: Faux alloy wheels (wheel caps), LED daytime running lamps

Interior: Dual tone dashboard with silver accents, chrome on parking brake tip and front ac vents, piano black finish around infotainment, silver finish for door handles, gear knob and steering wheel insert.

Comfort & Convenience: Smart access card key, push button start/stop, rear wiper, washer and defogger, auto up/down- driver window, rear view camera, driver vanity mirror, 12V socket for 3rd row

Audio: 2 front tweeters

Safety: Dual front side airbags

Verdict

At just a Rs 50,000 premium, the Triber offers some visual enhancements like LEDs, chrome and silver inserts here and there along with convenience equipment like push-button start-stop, rear washer and wiper, auto up/down and more. While all these are trivial and might not make a world of difference in the long run, the extra airbags are something that makes the Triber RXZ the variant to go for.  

But it continues to miss out on a host of features that can be found on similarly priced cars like the Maruti Swift and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. The misses include front fog lamps, steering-integrated audio control, driver seat height adjust, front adjustable headrests, pretensioner and load limiter for the front passenger (in all variants), non-retractable third-row seatbelts and ISOFIX child anchorages. It might have a smart key and push-button start/stop but doesn’t get a hands-free access button on the door handles.

All said and done, this variant of the Renault Triber is the most economically priced, decently loaded 5+2 seater under Rs 7 lakh. Moreover, it undercuts popular mid-size hatchbacks and despite missing on some features, offers a few above them.

The top model should have driver seat adjustable, steering audio control & alloy wheels. In fact they should launch the deseil version also.

      Triber is nice .but I am only worried about engine cc. 999 cc engine is not sufficient for this big car. It cannot up the load. Worried.
