Renault Triber receives updates for 2021
Renault’s frugal, seven-seater, Triber receives comfort and convenience updates
The Renault Triber has now been on sale in South Africa for more than a year and the 2021 model introduces several product enhancements for improved functionality and increased consumer appeal.
The product enhancements within the Renault 2021 model range include LED indicators on the side mirrors, a dual tone hooter, six-way adjustable driver’s seat and steering wheel mounted controls.
The Triber boasts noteworthy SUV design cues attributing to its bold look, with a best-in-class ground clearance of 182mm enhancing its road presence.
Seating for all
With 100 seating configurations available, the Triber is highly adaptable to meet the dynamic needs of any consumer. A clever seating design offers the ultra-flexibility of moving from a five to a seven-seater configuration with complete ease.
Aside from the impressive class-leading boot space of 625 litres when in five-seater mode, the cabin provides ample room for passengers in all rows for maximum comfort together with multiple storage locations for added convenience.
Punching above its weight
The modern and well-equipped interior offers equipment often only found in upper-segment vehicles, such as a reverse camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality as well as keyless entry to name a few. The comfort and convenience of all occupants is ensured with remote central locking and the introduction of separate air conditioner vent controls for the second and third rows.
Under the bonnet
Under the bonnet is a lively, new generation, three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 52kW and 96Nm. The recently introduced five-speed Easy R-AMT gearbox ensures a hassle free driving experience and is tuned for city driving conditions. The drivetrain offers a good balance of performance and fuel economy, with frugal fuel consumption from as low as 5.5 litres/100km.
Safety is a key selling point and the new Triber is equipped with ABS and a high level of passive safety equipment such as three point seatbelts on all seats and driver and passenger airbags across the range, while the Prestige model features front side airbags too.
The Renault Triber 2021 model range remains competitively priced, starting at R185 900, which includes a two-year/30 000km service plan and five-year/150 000km warranty.
