Renault Grand Modus (2008–2012)

Last updated 25 August 2016

Modus stretched 6-inches longer, so more spacious and handles better. 1.5DCI 86 the best engine and 119g/km so cheap tax.
Expensive at list prices. Rear seat is heavy to fold.

I liked the original Modus a lot more than I had expected to. Cute, likeable, practical and a good drive summed it up.

Now Renault has stretched it six and a half inches, which doesn't read like much, but makes a much bigger difference.

Owners' reviews

Renault service is woeful! Can't repair their own gearboxes!
Very solid car, absolutely reliable but not exciting to drive.
Comfortable, versatile and economical in the Dci (86) version.
