So how has Modus managed to achieve such low groupings? Put simply, it has possibly the finest safety and security levels ever seen on a supermini and some of the lowest parts and repair costs.

With Modus buyers eager to be among the first people to be seen on UK roads in the "small car with a big heart" come ‘54’ registration plate time in September, Renault’s engineers have pulled out all the stops to ensure that when it comes to enjoying the car, it is only the owner who gets their hands on the car.

Modus benefits from several anti-intrusion and anti-theft devices including: central locking with remote control and deadlocking, Category 2 Thatcham-approved immobiliser (Category 1 plus alarm on Privilège), anti-drill doors and locking fuel cap, plus the Renault Anti-Intruder Device (R.A.I.D.) which prevents anyone getting into the car by automatically locking all the car doors when it is travelling at over 5mph.

As has come to be expected from Renault, the car excels in both active and passive safety to prevent, correct and protect with an impressive list of standard features including: ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and brake assist, four airbags (six on most versions), driver’s side blind spot eliminating mirror, three ISOFIX points and seat belts with load limiters and pretensioners.
