Renault has added a new limited edition model to the lineup of the sub-four-meter compact MPV, the Tiber. Launched in a single variant with two transmission options, the new Renault Triber starts at Rs 7.24 lakh. The new Limited Edition has been launched to celebrate the sales of one lakh units of the Renault Tiber in India in 30 months.
Variants and Prices
The new Renault Triber Limited Edition is based on the second-top RXT variant and is positioned between the RXT and RXZ variants. This Limited Edition variant is available in two versions – while the manual version is priced at Rs 7.24 lakh, the one with an AMT gearbox will set you back by Rs 7.76 lakh (both prices ex-showroom, India). These prices make the new Limited Edition version around Rs 28,000 more expensive than the regular RXT variants.
Changes on the outside
The new Renault Triber Limited Edition is exclusively available in only two dual-tone paint schemes of Moonlight Silver with Black Roof and Cedar Brown with Black Roof. The only other visual change in the exterior of the Limited Edition variant is a new design for the 14-inch wheel caps for the steel wheels. The other highlights of the Triber Limited Edition are front and rear scuff plates, body side moulding all around, roof rails and halogen projector headlamps.
Changes on the inside
The interior of the Renault Triber Limited Edition gets a new Akaza fabric upholstery, which is a combination of dual-tone black and beige finish. The inside door handles and the dashboard trim gets new piano black touches to make the cabin feel slightly more premium over the regular versions of the Triber.
Apart from the minimalist visual changes in the cabin, the Renault Triber Limited Edition retains the equipment list of the RXT variant. It includes an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, fully-digital instrument console, push start-stop button, AC vents in all three rows, electrically adjustable rearview mirrors, reverse camera, front and side airbags, ABS with EBD and tilt-adjustable steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls on it.
Engine and Transmission
Like the other variants of the Renault Triber, the Limited Edition version also gets a 1.0-litre three-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine, which it shares with the Renault Kiger. Available with both the options of a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT, the engine produces a maximum power output of 72 PS and a peak torque output of 96 Nm.
The only direct competition to the Renault Triber in the sub-four-meter compact MPV category is the Datsun Go+, with which it shares its platform. However, compared to the Datsun Go+, the Triber offers a more premium feel, better quality levels, a longer equipment list and a more practical and spacious cabin.
