GRAND Modus Better Ride? Why No 106 dCi Quickshift?

1) Has anyone upgraded from a Modus to a Grand Modus? Is the ride comfort any better with the longer wheelbase? Do you notice the extra 6" length when parking?

2) Renault only sell the Quickshift (Direct-Drive Automatic) Modus Diesel dCi with the 80 hp engine, not the 106 hp. The petrol automatic has the biggest 1.6 litre 111 hp engine, so why does the diesel automatic only get the lower-powered 80 hp engine?

Re: GRAND Modus Better Ride? Why No 106 dCi Quickshift?

Hi,

We upgraded and find the ride is very similar. The extra length is not really noticeable, except in our garage! I keep a trailer behind the car and now have <3 inches spare at each end.

Don't know the answer re. the gear-box - maybe the QS5 box won't take any more power? Also, I think Renault withdrew the Modus QuickShift models a while ago.

Re: GRAND Modus Better Ride? Why No 106 dCi Quickshift?

Hello,

cannot comment on ride quality of Grand Modus as have not driven one, only standard Modus 1.6 auto but I would imagine the Grand Modus would ride better. As for the Quickshift version of the Modus and Grand Modus due to I suspect poor sales of that version Renault have deleted the Quickshift box from the Modus and Grand Modus line up. The only auto Modus and Grand Modus available is the 1.6 16v VVT petrol 4 speed torque converter auto. If its diesel auto you are after and you like Renault then the new shape Scenic 1.5 DCI 110 with the EDC automatic gearbox is worth a test drive.

I don't have a garage just a driveway. The Modus 1.6 16v VVT Dynamique Auto is my Grandparents car which I also drive.

It's academic, really, because Renault UK has stopped importing the Modus in any shape or form.
