Renault TRIBER will be available in four trims – RXE, RXL, RXT and RXZ at ex-show-room prices of Rs. 4.95, 5.49, 5.99 and 6.49 lakhs respectively. This is compact SUV under 4 meters and is attractively designed, sturdy, roomy & modular, versatile which can accomodate upto seven adults comfortably.
Its front-bumper is very sturdy and suggests a greater capacity to cope with the most difficult roads. Ground clearance of 182 mm reinforces the impression of robustness, as do other features such as the sculpted bonnet, front and rear SUV skid plates, roof bars, and black plastic wheel arch protections and lower protective door panels, giving the vehicle an adventurous look.
It has signature Renault design features such as LED daytime running lights circled in chrome and black headlamp masks. The Renault logo is highlighted on a Triple Edge Chrome front grille which extends to the projector headlamps. The two-part rear Eagle beak tail lamps extend onto the outside of the wings and taper to point to the center of the tailgate, making the vehicle seem wider.
The interiors of the Triber has two-tone colors, from deep black for the upper part of the dashboard to a beige and white tone for the lower part and door trims. The chrome trim on air vents, air-conditioning dials, the start/stop button, silver accents on the dashboard and the feel of the silver door handle and door armrests covered with pleasant-to-the-touch fabric, add to the overall visual appeal of the car.
To ensure passenger comfort, a refrigerated central storage area and cup holders are accessible to everyone between the first and second seats. In addition to the lower glove compartment, which is also refrigerated, there is an upper glove compartment with a capacity of more than 4 liters. The Triber features the best level of storage compartment of upto 31 liters, more than double of what is usually available on similar-size hatchbacks.

With the convenient hands-free card, doors can be opened and closed and the engine started with a smart start stop button, without making any physical contact with the key. The sensors in the card mean that the doors can be locked and unlocked without having to take the card out of a pocket or bag or pressing a button. The hands-free system includes an auto-lock function when drivers walk away from the vehicle.
