    Renault Triber vs Datsun Go Plus: Specification Comparison

    by Jagdev Kalsi Dates: 02 Aug 2019

    Renault Triber vs Datson Go+

    Before the Triber is launched in August 2019, Renault has revealed its specifications. We compare the Triber against its sole seven seater sub-compact rival -- Datsun Go+ -- to find out whether the Renault will just be a good looking seven seater, or will it be able to take practicality to the next level as well.

     

    Before getting into the specifications, it’s imperative to know here that the Go+ is likely to remain the affordable car of the two, with prices starting from Rs 3.86 lakh. With multiple Go+ variants in the Rs 5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh range, there will most likely be one or two Go+ variants that will directly rival the Renault, prices of which are expected to start above Rs 5 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

    Dimensions Comparison: Triber is the Larger Car!

     

    Compare the Datsun Go+ and Triber’s dimensions, and you will realise that apart from its overall length, which is also only 5mm more than the Triber, the Go+ is otherwise the smaller car.

     Dimension Comparison 

    Triber’s key to success here could be its wheelbase, which, at 2636mm, is longer that the Go+’ wheelbase by 186mm! Ideally, the extra space should allow Renault to offer better leg room to passengers in all rows.

    Triber’s boot space is also significantly higher than the Go+’. With the third row down, while the Go+ offers 347-lt boot space, Triber’s boot can take 625-lt luggage. Add to it the fact that there are numerous possibilities to arrange the Triber’s seats to turn it into a two-seater, four-seater, five-seater, six-seater or a 7-seater, and that will make the Triber the more versatile car as well.

     

    Powertrain comparison: Even-steven

    While we haven’t driven the Triber yet and, therefore, it deserves a benefit of doubt, but we do feel that its engine could be underpowered for a vehicle that can potentially seat seven people.

    At 72PS, Triber’s 1.0-litre petrol engine makes 4PS more than the Go+’ 1.2-litre unit. The Triber’s powertrain is marginally more fuel efficient that the Datsun’s. The consolation in the Triber’s case is the fact that its engine will be available with an AMT (automated manual transmission) as well for the sake of driving convenience.

     

    Verdict

    It is a given that the Triber is the more handsome car of the two seven seaters in this comparison. However, it is also the better car of the two on paper. Not only should the Triber offer more cabin space than the Go+, it will also be the more versatile car. Over and above, it will have the option of an automatic powertrain, making it more in-the-times than the Datsun.

     

    The Triber looks more desirable of the two models even after taking into account that it is likely to be the more expensive car of the two. What remains to be seen now is whether its price will justify the premium over the Datsun or not.
