What's the used Renault Grand Modus hatchback like?

This Renault Grand Modus still has only five seats like the non-Grand version, but there's more room inside for passengers to stretch out, and the boot's bigger than in the standard Modus, too.

Even some family cars can't match this Renault for legroom, especially in the back. As in the smaller version, buyers had the option of choosing a sliding rear-seat system that favours passenger or boot space as required. The central seat of the rear bench also flips up, so the two outer ones can slide inwards to create more shoulder room for two rear-seat passengers.

The Grand Modus is entirely reasonable to drive, with a suspension set-up that's aimed at comfort. The body rolls a bit, and the steering is short of feel, but it's well suited to town work.

The Grand Modus gets a full five-star rating in Euro NCAP safety tests, and all cars come with a minimum of four airbags and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points. However, stability control isn't standard on any model.
