Renault Triber Gets 4 Star Crash Test Safety Rating
Safest 7 Seater Family MPV in India? Renault Triber Gets Four Star Crash Test Rating
In a bit of good news, the Renault Triber has done very well in its Global NCAP rating and actually better than many other more expensive cars. It has achieved four star rating for adult occupants and three stars for child occupants in Global NCAP’s latest round of #SaferCarsForIndia crash tests. As is the case always the basic version was tested with two airbags and it has been noted that it has significant improvements from the previous Renault cars being tested by Global NCAP. The protection offered to the adult occupant driver and passenger head and neck was good as told by Global NCAP. "Driver chest showed marginal protection and passenger chest showed decent protection. Driver knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard. Passenger knees showed good protection. Driver and passenger showed adequate protection" According to the report.
As per Global NCAP- "The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as stable. The car offers standard seatbelt reminders (SBR) for driver and passenger. Chest protection was average and the head protection was low as it was exposed during the crash The 18 month old child restraint was installed with adult seatbelt rearward facing offering full protection to the child occupant. CRS marking was permanent"
Currently that makes it the safest 7 seater under 10 lakhs since it is the first one to do so, all the better since it proves that this platform which also underpins the Magnite and Kiger is quite safe. The Triber is on sale in India with a 1.0 petrol engine but it gives the option of either an AMT gearbox or a manual gearbox with recently the car getting some feature upgrades too.
