Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 Review – The Low Multi Purpose Vehicle (LMPV) market or commonly called a car that comes in the 7-seat LCGC (Low Cost Green Car) class is indeed very tempting. There are at least 3 big players who are fighting for this market, the Astra duo with Toyota Calya and the new Daihatsu Sigra to get revisions.
Renault said that the car we reviewed was a prototype product that was 99% similar to the product to be sold later. To be honest, in our opinion, the front exterior appearance of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 is impressive and inspiring. Try to check other products in the same class that have been circulating on the market, the shape tends to be melancholy and sweet. A dashing aura really radiates in this car. Well done Renault!
Black matte fenders, roof rails, and black accent stickers on the front and rear doors further strengthen the dashing aura of this Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 car. Unique aura is also highlighted by the use of curved window design on the Pillar C. Unlike when we review Triber for the first time the car still uses canned alloy wheels that are covered with 14-inch hubcaps. But now, the design of modern alloy wheels wrapped in two colors measuring 15 inches makes it look more attractive.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Rear View
Continue to the rear of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 car, the taillights with the shape of the eagle’s beak make this compact LMPV more powerful. Oh yes, this Triber dimension has a ratio of the width of the car to a body length of 48% or 43% without calculating the rear view mirror. Of course this is good news, because the proportion is getting better. As info, sports car manufacturers such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and others have an average body ratio of over 43%.
The dashboard layout used by the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 is quite modern and practical with many open and closed storage areas. Even so with the material used, all of them still use hard plastic materials. However, that is not bad news, considering that in its class of 7-passenger compact LMPV, no one uses a soft touch panel. Moreover, hard plastic materials like this are believed to be more durable for the long term.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Seat
Renault pinned a new breakthrough on this car, which has more than 100 configuration settings for the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 that you can use. Amazing right? We have tried directly the front seat of this car, the seat foam is hard and allegedly will be less comfortable when occupied on a medium to long journey.
The same thing you will feel in the second row seat on this Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 car. But, the legroom and headroom of this car is praiseworthy because it is quite adequate. This is because the design of the car roof is made slightly sloping upward to increase headroom and to place a dual blower on this car. One of the funs is the third row seats that can be folded with 50:50 mode further adds to the practicality of this Triber cabin.
It does not stop there, even though the third row seats look very narrow, but it turns out that adults and even the tester with posture can sit in the third row of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020. A miracle for cars whose dimensions are less than 4 meters long but have a carrying capacity of up to 7 passengers.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Steering Wheel
Unfortunately, there is no regulator button that is embedded in the steering wheel of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020. This certainly makes the modern aura of the cabin of this car a little less. But don’t worry, the design of the steering wheel of this car is still modern and quite comfortable and fits when held by hand. The steering wheel settings also do not have tilt steering alone let alone telescopic steering.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Baggage
Interestingly, there are several luggage choices that you can choose from in this Triber. First for the 7-seat configuration, you only get 84 liters in the rear luggage space. Then when you use 6 seats, you will have a capacity of 320 liters of luggage capacity. Meanwhile, if you remove the third-row seat from the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 and only use 5 seats, you will get 625 liters of space in the rear trunk.
The Multi Information Display inside the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 meter cluster panel is quite complete. Starting from information about fuel, speed, odometer, trip meter, engine speed, fuel meter, engine temperature, real time fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, trip meter, to external temperatures can be monitored from the LCD font rather like this calculator.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Smart Access Card
We are quite surprised by the presence of the smart access card feature on the Renault Triber RXZ type manual transmission alerts 2020 because you could say only this car that carries this feature in its class. With this feature, you only need to insert the ‘key’ in the form of this card into the pocket only, and when you approach the car, the door automatically opens, and vice versa, when leaving the car a few meters, the door automatically locks.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: In Car Entertainment System
The entertainment sector is also highly considered by Renault of this newest product. Because, the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 is equipped with a head unit that was made in collaboration with well-known vendors, and has been able to carry out the functions of Apple Car Play and the current Android Auto. In a way, this is the first in its class.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Start Stop Engine
The procession of turning on and off the engine at the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 is also getting easier. This is because of the start and stop engine button. All you have to do is just step on the clutch pedal, make sure the gear position is in N (Neutral) position, then just snap your fingers to the button, the engine will start and roar smoothly enough for the size of a 3 cylinder engine in line.
Review of the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020: Complete AC Settings
Although the AC controller in this car is still full manual without the automatic climate control feature, but the AC settings in the Maxindo Renault Indonesia hero product are so complete. Starting from the direction of the blast which can be adjusted to 5 directions, there are 4 speed blower speeds, even a heater or cabin heater is also available that utilizes the heat hose from the radiator of this car. For this class, it deserves two thumbs up.
Renault Triber Operation 2020
The engine that is embedded behind the Renault Triber RXZ MT 2020 bonnet is a SCe coded unit that will also be able to find behind the hood of the latest Renault Clio. Without the forced air induction system aka turbo, this engine spawned power of 72 Ps or around 70.5 Hp at 6,250 rpm engine speed, and a 96 Nm pounding of torque at 3,5000 rpm rotation. The power and torque are channeled to the two front wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission and later there will be a robotic Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) transmission option.
We cannot talk much about the impression of this car, because the car with over stroke engine character (piston stroke is longer than the piston diameter) is not yet available for the unit test drive in Indonesia. However, our team of one group in India has tested the road of this car, and they say that this gasoline engine with an odd number of cylinders has experienced many improvements when compared to other Renault 3-cylinder engines. However, it’s still like a typical 3-cylinder engine, when the gas pedal is stepped on you will immediately hear the roar of this engine to infiltrate the cabin.
They added, even when starting to walk, the distribution of energy seemed rather ‘lazy’ at the bottom lap, this is certainly anticlimax given the natural character of the 3-cylinder engine has a large torque at low speed. However, past 3,000 rpm, acceleration starts to feel positive. Similarly, the gear lever that feels less stable when operated. What is also rather unfortunate is the stamp pedal clutch which is not exactly light. In fact, based on the results of tests conducted by our group mates, we suspect that the clutch pedal might be heavier than its toughest rivals from Japan.
We have become even more convinced that we have to test this car ourselves on Indonesian roads when this Renault Triber car has made it through homologation in the country. Fortunately, according to our group one partner again, the suspension of this car is quite reliable and the slamming character of the suspension is quite mature (not too soft but still comfortable and okay to maneuver).
Conclusion of the 2020 Renault Triber
Yes! And we feel we don’t need to give any more reasons. This car is worth the wait and try directly and compared to its rivals who first existed in the Indonesian car market, such as Datsun Go + Panca, Datsun Cross, Toyota Calya and Daihatsu Sigra.
