New Renault Grand Modus
The Renault Modus has got a little bit bigger, in the form of the all-new Grand Modus, 93mm wider and 160mm longer than the standard Modus, the new Grand Modus is just as capable as its smaller sibling with a little more room all round, making it a strong competitor against the Nissan Note. More boot space, up to a maximum of 117 litres more with the rear seats folded flat and with the seats up the Grand Modus can now comfortably seat three in the rear.
Light and airy inside, with a comfortable driving position and ride, the Grand Modus is more suited to town driving than a long motorway slog, that said however, its only because the engine runs out of a little power when it comes to overtaking on hills and you find yourself having to drop down a gear to complete a manoeuvre.
Renault invented the MPV and the Grand Modus is a welcome addition to the mini MPV marketplace, plenty of cubbyholes and storage spaces stop things from rattling about in the cabin and although some may find the interior a little basic, it is well built and the instrument panel is neat and easy to read.
Will the Grand Modus take sales from the likes of the Note? Probably, although Renault may lose some sales of the Modus as some people will no doubt be attracted to its larger Grand sibling.
Like the looks of the Renault Grand Modus, why not check out the Ford Fusion, the Nissan Note or the Vauxhall Meriva.
