Renault Modus Initiale 1.5 dCi 106

Renault’s funky supermini the Modus has been enjoying huge success since its launch last September with over 8,000 registrations and even more orders as well as rave reviews from Press and public alike. Now for those who want the ultimate in chic but powerful small cars, the Modus Initiale brings a touch of luxury to the supermini sector and a new more powerful Euro IV compliant engine for the range, a 1.5 dCi 106 which comes complete with an all-new six-speed manual gearbox.

New trim and new diesel engines

Modus Initiale is available now from £13,550 for the 1.4 16V 98 rising to £15,055 for the 1.6 16V 113 Automatic, and you won’t find a more luxurious supermini for the money. Modus Initiale follows in the Renault tradition of small luxury cars like the Renault 5 Monaco and Bacarra and Clio Initiale.

Supermini = luxury?

The word luxury and supermini don’t often go hand in hand, however with New Modus Initiale customers may be surprised that for the price of £13,550 for the 1.4 16V 98 model on the road, they will actually get more standard equipment than a Jaguar XJ6 3.0 costing more than £39,000! Out of a list of 26 pieces of equipment, only three are not standard on the Modus Initiale compared to eight on the Jaguar.

Modus Initiale is based on the high spec existing Privilége trim but is bolstered with a wide range of additional standard features.

The luxurious feel of Modus Initiale is reflected in the interior trim with beige leather Initiale upholstery and door panel inserts adding to the stylish ambience. Comfort inside Modus Initiale is assured with Climate Control fitted as standard.
