The Renault Modus supermini hit UK showrooms. Originally marketed as “a higher-range alternative to the Twingo and Clio”, it was targeted at people who wanted the practicality and versatility of the larger Renault Scénic but without the added size. The Clio platform that spawned the Modus also gave rise to revised Nissan Micra and its monospace relative, the Nissan Note. In December 2011, Renault announced that the Laguna, Espace, Kangoo, Modus, and Wind lines would be axed in the United Kingdom as part of a cost-cutting plan to help the company earn a profit.
