Renault Modus Review

Still can’t find a vehicle that’s smaller than a hatchback but still able to provide enough room? Then the Renault Modus might be the model for you. Renault loyalists will appreciate its design cues from the Clio. But unlike its predecessor, the Modus features more rear passenger space as well as other helpful space expansions such as a larger boot.

Pros

The Modus features significant additions to its space. The typical space found on regular hatchbacks is much smaller compared to the Modus’ capacity. Four people can seat in comfort, while luggage space is prioritized via sliding rear bench. There’s enough headroom for tall passenger seated at the back. Seats are also readily adjustable, particularly when the rear seat is fixed to give more legroom. Boot space is also more than adequate, making this the vehicle for long journeys with a small group. A full house will have no problem riding long journeys as the car manages to maintain smoothness over bad road surfaces and bumps. The vehicle also sports safe handling, especially in terms of cornering into turns.

Complete equipment features are guaranteed via the Modus’ four airbags, emergency braking assistance, remote central locking, electric front windows, as well as a trip computer. You can upgrade these features with the Expression models’ heated door mirrors, a CD player, and even an extendable baggage cover. If you need certain objects by your side, the Expression has a “Stay Put” object retaining system on the front passenger seat. The Privilege model, on the other hand, includes electric rear windows, automatic headlamps, automatic windscreen wipers, an alarm, and cornering lights. Fancier upgrades are found in the Modus Dynamique’s front fog lamps, 15-inch alloy wheels, and metallic finish door handles. Safety is promised with each model variation, as the Modus was the first car to receive a five-star rating for the Euro NCAP crash tests.

Cons

The Modus, however, is unimpressive in terms of performance. The 1.2-litre entry-level petrol engine is slow at 75bhp. Although a 100bhp engine came in the year 2007, it performed weakly with its 48 mpg fuel economy. Although the 1.4-litre engine packs in 98bhp, it’s still unimpressive in terms of power. We would recommend the more powerful 1.6-litre that offers 111bhp. Apart from providing more power, this petrol engine is able to stay quiet and smooth. The diesel is also a smarter choice for anyone requiring longer drives.

Another downside is the overly assisted stirring. It feels a bit false on the road thanks to the imprecise response of the clutch, gear change, and throttle controls. Expect some trouble when you’re faced with several turns along the twistier looking roads.

The Modus does have some disadvantages against its competitors. If you don’t want to be limited by space, then the Nissan Note would be a better option. Another alternative and comparable vehicle is the Grand Modus.

In terms of price, you’ll get more value for money with its competitors. But if you are willing to sacrifice a small amount for the Modus’ flaws, then this vehicle isn’t one you’ll regret purchasing.

Renault Modus

                A mini multi purpose vehicle is designed by the French manufacturer of automobile, Renault S.A., which was called the Renault Modus. This five door multi purpose vehicle or MPV was created with a front engine, front wheel drive layout and is available in several transmissions including a five speed manual, a six speed manual, a four speed automatic, and a five speed automatic.

                This car is related to the Renault Clio, Nissan Note, and Nissan Cube in that it has a Nissan B platform. This mini MPV is assembled in Valladolid, Spain from 2004 until 2012, when it was finally succeeded by the Renault Captur, a mini sport utility vehicle or SUV. The Renault Modus was the first small car to be able to receive a full five star rating from the European New Car Assessment Programme or Euro NCAP.

                Among its competitors in the market include the Audi A2, the Toyota Yaris, the BMW Mini, and Honda Jazz. The Modus was removed in the market in the United Kingdom by December 2011 because of cost cutting, along with other models including the Laguna, Wind, Espace, and Kangoo. The target market of the car are those people who want to have versatility and practicality but who wish to have it in a smaller package. A concept car of the Modus was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2004.
