The Renault Modus

Renault unveils an innovative approach to compact cars at the 74th Geneva Motor Show in March. The MODUS show car previews the vehicle Renault plans to launch in Autumn 2004 as an alternative to the traditional B-segment hatchback, and a complement to Clio. Similar in size to Clio on the outside, MODUS is a super spacious supermini that boasts a surprising amount of cabin space for such a compact car and a fun personality that is hard to resist. Its roominess and equipment will position MODUS just above Clio, which continues to offer a more sporty design for buyers who put less emphasis on interior space.

Its main characteristics are its one-box architecture and innovative functions and features, previously reserved for higher segments, with improvements to safety and driving pleasure in particular. This versatile car is as much at home around town as on the open road.

A distinctive and likeable personality, full of character

MODUS’ design clearly sets it apart from the sporty Clio. Its exterior is modern and original, with a cheery front and streamlined profile. The vast glazed area immediately hints at the exceptionally roomy interior. The flush-fitted 17-inch wheels and accentuated arches denote sturdiness and stability. As for colour, MODUS comes in a unique Ice Blue with body-coloured front and rear bumpers.

The line that runs along the side of the car from the door mirrors to the door handles and as far as the tail lights emphasises MODUS' flowing silhouette. The rounded bonnet along with the seamless transition from the top of the wing to the A pillar and up to the roof add to the one-box feel.

The Renault brand identity is clearly in evidence thanks to the vertically positioned logo, set into the radiator grille. At the rear of the car, the logo is centrally positioned above the MODUS badge.
