How spacious is the Renault Triber when compared to its prime competitors?

The Renault Triber is the only car in its segment that offers three rows of seating. Its priced in the range of Rs 4.95 lakh to Rs 6.63 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and it locks horns with the Maruti Swift, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Ford Figo. Its top variant is cheaper than all of the aforementioned cars but does that mean it skimps on space? We’ll let the numbers speak for themselves.

  • The Triber is the longest, tallest and widest when compared to its competition.
  • Its wheelbase is also the highest by a fair margin. The boot space is a sparse 84 litres with all three rows up but when you fold the last row, it spikes up to a massive 625 litres.
  • All other hatchbacks have closely matched dimensions but it’s the Figo that has the highest wheelbase among them.

Seat base length 440
Seat base Height 555
Kneeroom (min-max) 580-730

  • Only the Triber gets a third row. What’s more, it’s quite usable for even adults. There’s healthy shoulder room, headroom and knee room on offer as well.
  • However, the third row might not be the best bet for bigger than average-sized passengers.
  • The Triber’s modularity also comes in handy here as you can remove the third row altogether to free up a massive 625 litres (up from 84 litres) of boot space.
