The French manufacturer’s latest vehicle in Nepal is an attractive and feature-packed proposition.
If one harbours dreams of owning an SUV in Nepal, one needs to be prepared to shell out a significant amount. Renault’s Triber, the new 5-seater SUV, has officially been launched in Nepal, and is looking to upend that narrative.
The Renault Triber is certainly attractively designed, it is sleek sharp and refined. The sizeable grille up front, coupled with the muscular body, bestow the vehicle with an air of authority and prestige. It is a sight to behold– a stunning, striking and well-sculptured vehicle that commands your attention. Fans of Renault will appreciate the French manufacturer’s familiar design language.
On the interior, the Triber is above all things, functional. Renault’s marketing tag line for the Triber has been ‘Space for Everything,’ and that reflects not only in the sizeable boot space but also the spacious interior. The interior is roomy, comfortable and comes with a plethora of features. Some of them being – EasyFix seats, SUV Skid plates, LED instrument cluster, Twin AC vents, an 8-inch touch screen Media Nav Evolution System.
As for performance, the Renault Triber doesn’t lag behind. Outfitted with a 1.0-litre petrol engine, the SUV is capable of generating a max power of 721BHP at 6250RPM and a max torque of 96Nm at 3500RPM.

There was a palpable sense of excitement in the air because Renault’s latest offering is a truly noteworthy price proposition.
The entry-level variant – RXE, is priced at Rs 2.82 million. Given Nepal’s vehicle market, that is a very reasonable entry point for a 5-seater SUV.

Renault Triber will play an important role in our expansion plans and will set new benchmarks in terms of space and modularity,” he said.
