Take a look at this digitally-modified Renault Triber, which looks pretty different from the stock model with aftermarket rims and lowered ride height.
The Triber MPV was the much-needed success that Renault India was seeking after faltering for a while. The diminutive 7-seater has been placed in an unexplored niche with smart packaging, attractive design, and very affordable pricing. The Triber quickly became Renault’s best selling product in India, surpassing the Kwid which was the only vehicle getting consistent sales for the French automaker before. Though it is one of the cheapest 7-seat MPVs you can buy in India, it doesn’t feel like it's built to a cost, unlike the Datsun Go Plus for example. Today we came across this Renault Triber which with only a couple of modifications, looks quite different to the stock model. However, these modifications are performed digitally.
The pictures of this modified Renault Triber has been uploaded by Low5100W on Instagram. As you’ll notice that there aren’t too many mods to the body, and it remains largely the same. The biggest noticeable change is the slammed ride height, which though isn’t mentioned is probably through the use of an air suspension system in the designer's imagination. The system uses a pump or compressor which pumps air into rubber bellows. This lets the system pull the air out of the airbags to let the car rest virtually on its belly, giving this Triber an impossibly low stance. The MPV also gets a set of aftermarket multi-spoked dished alloys finished in a shade of silver. Though this Triber hasn’t had a whole lot of modifications done, the lower ride height combined with the rims gives it a different presence altogether.
The Renault Triber is powered by a 1-litre three-pot N/A engine which churns out 72 PS and 96 Nm of peak power and torque, respectively. The powertrain can be mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT. Given the fact that the Triber is a 7-seater MPV, the powertrain can feel underpowered to some. But Renault was focused on keeping the costs as low as possible, and adding a more powerful variant will increase costs. Prices for the Renault Triber start from Rs 5.20 lakh and goes up to Rs 7.50 lakh for the top-end trim. Do note all prices are ex-showroom.
