Renault New Modus & Grand Modus LWB
Even though the Frankfurt Show took place last month (click here), Renault decided that it would be better to wait a few weeks to unveil the redesigned Modus compact MPV and its new sibling, the long-wheelbase Grand Modus. Available in Europe from early 2008, the facelifted Modus (renamed to New Modus), features a redesigned front end inspired from the Scenic MPV along with a new set of taillights. In all, the New Modus looks less fun, but more “upscale than the outgoing model.
As for the Grand Modus, not only does it feature a longer wheelbase (+93mm) than the New Modus thus promising extra legroom for rear passengers, but thanks to its overall length of 4,034mm (Modus: 3,873 mm or +163 mm), it boasts a significantly enhanced boot volume (410lt compared to the New Modus’ 293 lt).
