Renault South Africa has given its Triber some additional features. Here's a quick look at the changes, plus how much it costs.
The Renault Triber has been on sale for just over a year and around 4 200 of them have found homes in South Africa. For 2021, Renault has introduced what it calls product enhancements for its practical offering.
The changes are minimal, with Renault adding in LED indicators on the side mirrors, a dual tone hooter, a 6-way adjustable driver’s seat and steering mount controls, depending on the trim level.
The Renault Triber retains its 182 mm of ground clearance and is available with a 1.0 litre 3-cylinder petrol delivering 52 kW and 96 Nm. As far as gearbox options go, the Renault Triber is available with a manual gearbox and an automated manual transmission. Renault claims a consumption figure of 5.5 L /100km.
Standard features are good with a reverse camera, rear parkign sensors, Apple Carplay/Android Auto, keyless entry, remote central locking and the driver’s seat now has 6-way adjustable capabilities which Renault claims 'facilitate greater driving comfort.' Safety features are covered with ABS and driver and passenger airbags across the range, with additional front side airbags on the Prestige.
The Renault Triber is arguably the French brand's most practical offering, with 100 seating configurations available. It boasts seating for 5 with a huge boot, or 7 seats with a smaller boot. With the third row of seats easily removed, the vehicle has 625 litres of boot space. Renault says it has four seating modes and 100-seating combinations to provide all the space ever needed. The ultra-modular seating configurations include: CAMP MODE [2-seater]; SURF MODE [4-seater]; LIFE MODE [5-seater] and TRIBE MODE [7-seater].
