Renault Triber Ownership Review in Real Life basis Long Distance Travel, City Drive, Space for 7 People, Engine Noise and Vibration with Performance Explained
Here is Experience of Renault Triber on first Highway Run with 5 people on board.
Coming to the negatives of Renault Triber
1 Litre Engine Noise and Vibration Level: Renault Triber comes with 1 Litre Engine in 3 Cylinder. There are Mild Vibrations First gear vibrations and engine noise are typical of the 3 cylinder engine. It is its character and not an issue. Experienced it on test drive car as well. It would be unfair to say that there is no vibration at all.
Can 1 Litre Engine can take 7 People on Board: The power is sufficient to carry 7 people but not too powerful. If you compare 1 Litre Engine of Triber with 1.5 Litre Engine as available in Ertiga or Diesel Engine of Innova then its too much a comparison. Check the Pricing part of Triber before comparison. You have to rev up quite often when you climb up the slope or hills. But I wouldn't say it is too weak or unable to carry 7 people, it also depends on how we use the accelerator to give more power. Good enough for city commute and occasional long trip.
AC Performance: Strong Point for Renault Triber with Individual AC Vents on both 2nd and 3rd Row makes it good to go. AC Cooling was quick and effective
Space with all 7 People on Board: As Triber comes with flexibility of Sliding 2nd Row - you can customize seating space but 3rd row due to limited under-thigh support is best for average size adults or Kids. If you are well build then 1st or 2nd Row is what can seat in. Look at legroom on 3rd row
With all 3 Rows up yes very less boot Space left, but one can add up Carrier on Roof Rails and Triber comes with Functional Roof Rail which has capacity of carrying 50 Kg load on it with Carrier.
Expectation with Renault Triber: If u are looking for pickup and thrust with Ac then don't buy. Only if are looking for a car with space loaded with features, a decent and smooth drive at a budget then go for it. I had 1.2 Litre Maruti Eeco van before it and after that this vehicle is a breeze. I am enjoying the ride of Triber
You get 4 Airbag Safety, High Ground Clearance, able to well drive with 7 People on board, Multi Media Touchscreen AVN, Good Looks, Features List and I am Business man so more useful triber to me with Value Buy Appeal Factor

Is Mileage Low or High: Some Owners have Mixed opinion of Low Mileage and some are happy with good Mileage. Only when the car driven for few thousand Kms can the mileage be best determined. However, do note that if Triber driven with 7 People on board at most of times then Mileage bound to get lower due to additional Weight
Safety: As Claimed by Renault its compatible with AIS98 Offset Frontal Crash at 56 Kmph speed and AIS 99 Side Crash at 50 Kmph speed. Also available with 4 Airbags in Top Model with Seat Belt Pretensioner and ABS. At the price point Triber is offered am happy with the Safety Features in car.
Engine Performance: Triber is powered with 1 Litre, 3 cylinder Engine with 72 PS Power and 96 NM Torque
If you ask me Triber engine in one word - well will call it 'Mediocre'
Yes you can drive with even 7 people on board, some people will claim to
> Move on to hills with 7 people on board
> Move on with higher speed
> How about Pickup
> How about Engine Vibration
> How about Engine Noise at higher speed
For day to day drive within city usage - its okay and to move with family of 6 to 7 people can move on
But - somehow what you pay is what you get. There is no other 7 seater except Maruti Eeco,
If your maximum Usage going to be 5 Seater and you seek 3rd Row Seat less than 5% of times, then same engine when put in comparison to 1.2 Litre Engine as what used in 5 Seater Cars
> Tata Altroz
> Volkswagen Polo
> Ford Figo
these engines feels lot more refined in NVH and yes with superior pickup too. Hence calls it a medicore engine,
Suspension, Handling: Somehow yes Steering is light and feels good to hold
Light in city and gains weight on highway. Suspension always remained strength of Renault Cars and overall suspension and handling dynamics of Renault Triber has an edge in
Seating: As referred its a 5+2 seater car where 7 people can go on
2nd Row Seats can be slide ahead but 3rd row due to limited under-thigh support is best for average size adults or Kids. If you are well build then 1st or 2nd Row is what can seat in
Also, look at boot space with all 3 Rows up
Essentially with 6 people on board if person sitting on 3rd row is child then can split in 3rd row with 50:50 and can get a better boot space. Overall - there are many options of flexibility
Renault Triber Positives
> Low Service
> Good Tuned Suspension
> Good Handling
> Flexibility in Seating Space
> Good Features List
> Engine - Pickup, NVH
> Safety Factor
> Still limited 3rd row under-thigh support
of car has a question to it
Yes at the price point at which Renault Triber is available you only get Datsun Go Plus and somehow sales of Go Plus is very average. So if budget is limited then Renault Triber is the default choice
But Value buy ? Basis Engine - Safety and Limited under-thigh support - i wont call it Value buy
