Renault has showcased the AMT version of the Triber at the auto expo, but the manufacturer also showcased a new 1.0L turbo-petrol engine that will be seen on the Triber soon.
Renault has been introducing a series of updates to its lineup. In this array of updates, the Triber has got itself an updated 1.0L engine. Triber was already equipped with a 1.0L 3-cylinder engine without a turbocharger, which it now has. The turbocharged engine that the Triber gets is codenamed as HR10 internally and will be named as TCe (Turbo Control Efficiency) for the market. The 1.0L TCe engine will produce 100PS and 160Nm of peak power and torque output with the Triber.
