Team-BHP’s Renault Triber Review is live!

Click here to read the definitive review of the Renault Triber.

What you’ll like:

  • A 7-seat MPV at the price of B-segment hatchbacks. Lots of car for the money
  • We like the crossover’ish styling. Looks swell for an MPV!
  • Practical & spacious cabin, with a usable 3rd row. Ample storage too
  • Incredible 625L boot with 3rd-row removed. Many cargo & seating combinations available
  • Neutral road manners and city-friendly size (unlike most other 7-seater MPVs)
  • Equipment for a budget car (4 airbags, touchscreen ICE, reversing camera)
  • Loads of neat touches such as auto locking & unlocking, removable 3rd row seat, underseat drawer, fully adjustable 2nd row seats…

What you won’t:

  • Boring 1.0L petrol engine lacks pep & punch. It is the weakest link in this package
  • Average NVH levels. Engine can get noisy, while vibrations are felt on the inside
  • Some misses such as a thinner spare tyre, no foglamps / steering-mounted controls…
  • Cabin width makes it a 6-seater, not 7 (i.e. 2 adults on the middle row, not 3)
  • Minimal boot space with all seats occupied; you’ll need that roof-mounted carrier
  • No diesel or automatic options in the line-up
  • Renault’s after-sales service quality is inconsistent
