Renault to Launch small car - Modus for the Indian market during Auto Expo 2012

To make a place for any car maker in India, it is very important for it to launch a small car here. And that is exactly what Renault is planning with the Modus.

Earlier this year, Renault revealed its plans of adding five cars to their portfolio in the next year and a half. The Fluence and the Koleos have already made its way into the Indian market but what the French automobile manufacturer really needs is a small car for the Indian market.

The car has been seen a lot of times testing around but Renault people have everytime said that the Car is for Global markets and is on the test run  in India, thus leaving the option of Clio to be launched in India. Clio was also seen hovering around the roads for  a test run.

However, now it is officially confirmed that the small car for the Indian market is Modus. There are two models available - Modus and Grande Modus in the global market but Renault people say Grande Modus will not make its way to the Indian market. The car is to be priced in the range of Rs 4.5 Lac to Rs 6 Lac with a 1.2 Liter engine delivering 88 bhp.

The car is scheduled to be unveiled during Auto Expo 2012.
