The Triber is a sub-4 metre MPV based on the CMF-A platform
Exports to South Africa had already started in December 2019, when the company shipped out 600 units of the Triber.

Based on a modified version of the CMF-A platform, the Renault Triber is the first sub-4 metre 7-seater from the company. The car is equipped with features like - projector headlamps, LED DRLs, electric boot release, smart-looking wheels, functional roof rails and more. It also comes with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear AC vents, and a first-of-its-kind modular third row called EasyFix.
Renault will soon launch the Triber with the AMT option
Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, "We will continue this growth momentum and foresee potential growth and high demand from other African markets and ASEAN and SAARC countries alongside growing the Triber family in India,"
Safety features like - dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, load limiter + pretensioner (driver only), speed alert warning, seat belt reminder - driver + passenger, rear parking sensor, pedestrian protection and also standard. The top-end model gets 4 airbags. So, Renault has clearly managed to pack in a lot of features in this sub-4 metre car.
