The long-awaited automatic version of the Triber will go on sale in three models, with the AMT gearbox model available for all but the base RxE trim. In February this year the Triber AMT made its public debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. When it first unveiled the Triber in June 2019, Renault had announced the AMT gearbox option for its compact 7-seater, but it only released the car with a manual transmission later that year.
Coming to differences, the automatic Triber will look almost identical to the currently on sale manual model, with the only differences expected to come down to the gear lever within the cabin and the 5-speed AMT gearbox. The model shown at the Expo wore some additional cosmetic bits but it is not confirmed if those on the automatic model will be available as standard.
As regards tools, it is possible that the AMT versions would deliver the same package rates as their manual equivalent. Expect the completely charged Triber RxZ AMT to get features such as an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument cluster, AC vents in all three sides, keyless entry and exit, and compact LED DRL projector headlights.
As for competition, the AMT is estimated to cost more than its manual equivalent around Rs 50,000. Following the introduction of the AMT, Renault is also preparing a Triber turbo-petrol iteration which will be powered by a new 1.0-liter, three-cylinder turbo-petrol HR10 engine which produces 95hp. The unit is also to be offered in the upcoming Nissan Magnite compact SUV and its Renault sibling, developed by Nissan.
