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?
Currently in Trevor2522's garage:
Renault Modus (Short Wheelbase), 1.5 dCi Diesel, Dynamique, Quickshift (Robotised Manual Gearbox), 2009, 27,000 miles.
