Renault Triber has scored four-star rating in the GNCAP crash test. The Triber was awarded four stars in adult occupancy safety and three stars for child occupancy safety .
The Triber is Renault India’s sub-four metre seven-seater SUV and one of its most successful offering, having sold more than 75,000 units since its launch in August 2019.
The NCAP test recorded the ratings based on a front-impact crash test at 64kmph. The Triber model being tested featured two front airbags and seatbelts with a pre-tensioner on the driver’s side. In terms of adult safety, the Triber scored 11.62 points out of 17 points and in child safety, it scored 27 points out of 49 points. These points are given on basis of various parameters. Going by the ratings, the Renault Triber is one of the safest MPV’s sold in India.
The bodyshell of the MPV was rated unstable as it was not deemed capable of withstanding any further loads. However, the footwell area on the other hand was rated stable.
The RWF child seats were used for the 18-month-old test dummy. The child seat in conjunction with the adult seatbelt offered full protection to the child occupant. It is also worth noting, that while the Triber allows for the installation for a child seat at the rear, it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages.
The Renault Triber used in this round of tests came with the most basic safety specification. This means the model tested came equipped with two airbags, a seatbelt reminder system and ABS.
Mechanically, the Triber tested here came fitted with the 72hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 5-speed manual gearbox. However, in our market, Renault also offers the Triber with a 5-speed AMT automatic gearbox.
