Nice scoop pics, VeeTee. Looks like we will see plenty more in the days to come.


Managed to dig out a few more pics:

The front dashboard (how it might look for Indian drivers) -

The one spotted in Chennai is not the "Grand Modus", its "Modus". See the missing rear quarter-glass.

Just to confirm, the back seems to be the same as that of the Grand Modus .

I am Happy

So it is :-(

I dont see the point in selling 2 hatches of roughly the same size - Micra and this one. The Grand Modus could have been something different.

Still, this one's got about 293l of boot space with the rear seat at the last position.

Finally, the Jazz has some competition for itself, and I'm talking purely on the basis of size, for a hatch, of course. I wouldn't be surprised if Renault had set their sights on the Jazz when they decided to include the Modus in their portfolio.

Should be a great car. Looks promising. But the way Renault have gone about pricing their other products, this one, should at all costs, be priced reasonably and sensibly. I don't see it doing well, otherwise.

Nice scoop !!
From the exterior pics i thought it ll be pitted against the i10. But the interior space has taken me by surprise. This seems right up there in the Jazz territory.

I am thinking if this was a model which is still under the wraps as far as Renault was conerned then why is it not camouflaged. There must be something wrong here.
Dont think Renault is blunt enough to allow everyone take snaps of thier non-camouflaged car.
We know that Fiesta Hatch was doing round in similar fashion but ended up not being launched at all. Same might be the case here, they might just be test driving the car to get the feedback on indian roads thats all.

Some how I'm not convinced Renault are launching the Modus in India just yet. My gut instinct tells me they're probably doing component/engine/platform testing.

If they do launch it it'll be proper competitor to the Jazz, the still to come shortened Xylo, and a 5 seat alternative to the Ertiga!

This is one of the most funniest segment in Top Gear's history when the mother's are brought in to decide which car is better between Honda Jazz, Peugeot 1007 & Renault Modus.





The ladies did a fair job and all gave their vote to Jazz, but the trio of the hosts put their money on Modus. So hopefully, we'll find a worthy car sitting in the premium hatch segment. It's faster than the Jazz. It's more roomy than the Jazz. Geez! What an exciting year 2012 is going to turn out eh?

Because the one with round tail-lights is the last gen Modus. Current gen (facelift) shares the test mule rear with the Grand Modus.

Hey darthcoder, check the pics from VeeTee, the facelift of the Modus also brought the Grand Modus, both share almost all the body parts , however the rear quarter and C-pillar is probably different to accomodate the increased length and wheelbase of the G.Modus.

Autocar India editor, Sorabjee has tweeted "Scoop from Frankfurt. Carlos Ghosn (Renault-Nissan CEO says he is coming for Indian GP. Concept of Renault small hatch (B58) likely to be unveiled by him then..

The unveiling in October and launch in 2012 i guess...

Excellent scoop JRAJE! Wow so many options in small car now . Did you had a chance to check the Ground Clearance of this car? As I could see from the Renault UK Website, 120mm seems to be very low.

Excellent Scoop!!

Is it just me or someone else also believes that the interiors look bit(actually a lot) outdated. The centre console is not looking good and the storage area just infront of driver seat is looking tacky! Just thinking what all driver can store in that

This is not going to compete with Jazz, i20 due to its interiors.
