While the Triber has been quite a popular offering in the Indian market, but an automatic transmission has always been sorely missed in it.

The car is now bound to get the Kwid's 5-speed Easy-R AMT unit and will use the BS 6 compliant 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine producing 72 PS of maximum power and 96 Nm of peak torque. In terms of fuel economy, the engine is rated to deliver 20.5 kmpl, while the 5-speed MT version delivers 20 kmml.

The company is also working on the HR10 1.0L turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine which will be given to it in the future. For the uninitiated, this engine is a downsized version of the HR13 1.3L turbocharged petrol engine which made its debut in the 5th-gen Nissan Micra, a few years back.

This engine is available with/without direct injection and has been rated to push out 100 PS/ 160 Nm (without direct injection) and 117 PS/ 170 Nm (with direct injection). Following Triber, the engine will also make way to the Renault's upcoming HBC sub-4 metre SUV.

In terms of pricing, the Renault Triber AMT will be made available at a slightly higher premium due to the updated engine as well as costlier transmission. It will retail at around 30,000 to 40,000 higher price-tag in comparison to the current MT model.
