  • Triber undercuts the Ertiga by up to Rs 3.5 lakh

  • Triber is shorter, both in terms of overall length as well as the wheelbase.

  • Ertiga has more power, offers diesel option.

The Renault Triber is ostensibly an MPV, and it has three rows of seats, but it also a small car by the government’s definition of a small car, with its sub-4-meter overall length and 1.0-liter petrol engine. Does it really have what it takes to draw people away from the Ertiga, which has been people’s MPV of choice when they’re on a budget?

The Triber’s styling echoes that of an SUV, with skid plates front and rear, matte black plastic cladding in various areas, and a bold European grille flanked by projector headlamps. More upmarket touches are present in the form of LED DRLs and roof rails. The Ertiga follows a more traditional MPV path as far as its styling is concerned, but doesn’t skimp on the premium features. Projector headlamps on either side of a large chrome grille, rather more intricate alloy wheels, mirror-mounted LED indicators, and large LED tail lamps complete its look. Both MPVs use kinks in the bodywork in the side to break the monotony, but they do it in different ways: the Triber has a kink in the C-pillar, while the uses a sharply angled rear quarter glass up towards the D-pillar to get it done. 

Inside, the Triber offers a couple of unique features: you can remove the third row entirely to liberate a 625-liter boot, and it has a digital instrument cluster with a 3.5-inch LCD screen and four airbags. There is also an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The Ertiga also offers a lot of these features, like a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a color LCD screen in the instrument cluster, climate control, and the third row folds flat into the floor, so unlike the Triber, you don’t have to leave the third row behind if you need to prioritize boot space over people carrying capacity.

The Renault Triber is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine that generates 71bhp and 96Nm. You have the choice of either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The Ertiga offers a petrol and diesel engine, both of which displace 1.5 liters with four cylinders. You can have 102bhp and 138Nm with petrol power or 94bhp and 225Nm with the oil burner. The diesel is likely to be discontinued by April, though. Both engines are available with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and the petrol offers a four-speed automatic as well. 

The Triber, with its advantage of less excise duty thanks to its engine displacement and overall length, starts at Rs 5 lakh and tops out at Rs 6.5 lakh. The Ertiga petrol range from Rs 7.55 lakh and go up to Rs 10 lakh. The diesel variants go up to Rs 11.2 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom.
