My initial budget was 7 lacs but the choice of cars was too little and too small. We are a family of 4 and plan to have a pet dog which we will carry around when going on trips. Occasionally we will have to take my parents with us which makes us 6 and a pet.
Due to the rising costs in mind I planned to buy a small hatchback like the hyundai santro so that if needed a bigger car occasionally I could rent a car for few days but while looking a economical alternate I ended up liking the Renault triber, even though it costs slightly higher than budget the decent mileage along with low maintainance costs felt attractive to me and the option to mix and match the seating configuration was too good for my need.
The car was also not too huge for my parking space. Am yet to take a test drive of the triber but any guidance on this dilemma would be appreciated.

The other confusion I have is I need to drive to my office which is about 20km from home Daily and is loaded with slow moving traffic at times, on my dad's grand i10 my left leg and my left hand used to ache after the end of day so is it better to go for an amt.

Are there any know issues with the triber.
The RXT varian suits my need but should I spend more and get the limited edition, is it worth the extra amount?

Dear Manohar Sahab,

Hi. Hope doing great

Although Renault Triber looks like Value Proposition basis
> Space Flexibility where can manage space with lots of modality
> Good Mileage, Low Maintenance
> All Necessary Features loaded in car
> Also scored 4 star in Global NCAP
> Suspension fairly well tuned up for this car

But somehow
> Renault after sales service score low basis JD Power CSI Index
> Renault 1 Litre 3 cylinder engine refinement levels are pretty average
> Engine Performance of a car which cost Rs 6.95 Lakh exshowroom feels mediocre
> Plastic Quality is pretty average
> 3rd Row mediocre legroom

My Point is - even though your budget is limited but its not that limited too to make a compromise
Basis requirements and usage specified - you have 2 wonderful choices

a) All New Baleno Sigma Manual Transmission: Great value choice as package in Rs 6.35 Lakh
> Space - you can actually find this 5 seater offering loads of legroom and space with very comfy legroom, excellent shoulder room space
> Very refined 4 cylinder dual jet Petrol Engine - you can feel the best of refinement . Remember Engine is the heart of the car
> Near best in class mileage
> Despite base model feature loaded with ABS, Airbags, All 4 Power Window, Remote Lock, Defogger, Auto Climate Control, Projector headlight. You just need to install in Wheel cover worth Rs 2500 and Music system basis requirement in range of rs 15K (2 Din with 4 speakers) or 30K (touchscreen with camera)
> Proven after sales service and very high resale in used car market
> Suspension been tuned up well and now no more stiffer side as used to be past
> Clutch is light, steering is feather light and in city use feels an excellent choice
> Much improved car and feels lot value

Else care for convenience
Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Magna AMT: At Rs 6.69 Lakh. In terms of AMT Responsiveness - this hatch is by far the best in under 7 Lakh price
> AMT feels pretty responsive and jerks are minimal
> refined 4 cylinder petrol Engine
> All Necessary standard features in convenience, styling, infotainment
> Proven resale and proven after sales service with very low service cost
> light steering with AMT as no manual clutch pedal makes it a great convenience
> Suspension feels fair well sorted

Only con is that this car safety rating is questionable along with highway dynamics where steering do not inspire confidence.
This is a car for relaxed drive

For your Parents who going to Join in:
See it looks like that 90%+ usage going to be with 4 member and pet and only for vacation trips with family you need a 7 seater. Instead of compromise - choose in 5 seater car like Baleno Sigma or Nios Magna AMT which are pretty value and hire a 7 seater vehicle like Ertiga New Series MY 2019 onwards or Innova Automatic on self driven usage purpose.

This will be much more comfortable scenario.
Do note that Triber when used with 3rd row up will barely be left with any boot space - so where will you carry luggage.
Its best to choose in Nios Magna AMT or Baleno Sigma and make a value proposition choice for need with better engine, refinement and proven after sales service and resale for peace of mind ownership

Hope should help
