Renault has opened the order book on its new mini-MPV, the Modus, yours for as little as £9250 in 1.2-litre Authentique trim. The new model is available with a choice of four trim levels and five engines. Basic spec includes four airbags, ABS with EBD, electric front windows, remote central locking and Renault’s new Triptic rear seat. Expression trim adds two extra airbags, body coloured bumpers, and electric door mirrors; Dynamique gets leather on the steering wheel and gear lever, plus alloy wheels and front fog lights.
The most expensive option when the car arrives with its first customers in September will be the £13k Privilège model with 1.6-litre petrol power, an automatic gearbox, automatic wipers, cornering headlights, and air conditioning. A pricier top-of-the-range Initiale version is due next year. Until then, features like the Modus’ panoramic sunroof and ‘boot chute’ (right) will remain optional extras.
