The system will also support some intelligent features like driving-style coaching and a driver economy rating.

The seven-seat version of the Renault Triber will come with dedicated AC vents for the third row. The third row can be folded to make more boot space.

On the security front, the Renault Triber will come with dual front airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors and a speed warning system as standard. The Renault Triber is expected to feature a modified version of the CMF-A modular platform underpinning the Kwid. The platform will make the car safer during crashes and compliant with the new safety norms that will come into play from October 2019.
