Crash Test 2004 - 2006 Renault Modus EURONCAP
The passenger dummy's left knee registered higher loads than the driver's and was used in the adult occupant score. Structures in the knee-impact areas represented potential hazards to the knee and femur protection for both driver and passenger.
A rearward-facing childseat should not be placed in the front passenger's seat as there is no way to deactivate the airbag for that seating position. The label warning against doing this did meet Euro NCAP's requirements. The ISOFIX anchorages in the rear outboard seats were not sufficiently well indicated.
The leading edge of the bonnet scored no points for the protection it offered to pedestrians.

Talking of bottoms, the previous Megane was famous for the 'shaking derriere' advertising campaign but our latest French lady has become more rounded, more mature and perhaps more sophisticated, not just at the rear but covering the entire body shape.
The more grown up five-door Megane Hatch range, with prices starting from £13,735, has recently been joined by the new Megane three-door Coupe models and their prices start from £14,485. Expect other new shape Megane versions to follow.
The new Megane Hatch is a complete renewal for Renault's C-segment range where sport and passion are design features say Renault. The Hatch still has to compete with some very strong competition in the form of the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and Volkswagen Golf plus the Peugeot 308, Citroen C4 and Mazda3. So even with a new found elegance the latest Megane is still going to find it tough in a declining market.
Principally fleet and business car users end up driving the Megane models where the cars are new and traditionally private retail buyers have adopted the Megane as a used car.
The sleek elegant new styling will suit downsizers moving from Renault's Laguna which itself has recently been significantly updated for looks and both seem to have improved quality with better specification.
There are three trim levels for the Megane Hatch, Expression, the best selling Dynamique and Privilege. Air conditioning, loads of safety equipment, new-generation variable power assisted steering, electrically operated windows and heated electrically adjustable door mirrors are included as core features on all models.
The best selling Dynamique Hatch specification includes additional items such as 16-inch alloy wheels, upgraded sound system with Bluetooth, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, cruise control, leather trimmed steering wheel and front fog lights.
Active and passive safety systems for all models as standard include ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) with ASR (Anti-Skid Regulation) and CSV understeer control, ABS anti-lock braking and EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) and the Hatch has a Euro NCAP five-star safety rating.
Currently there are four petrol and three diesel engines on offer including a new high-efficiency 2.0 TCe 180bhp turbocharged petrol unit and new 1.9 dCi 130bhp turbodiesel.
All dCi diesel engines meet Renault eco2 environmental standards for performance and manufacturing, with CO2 emissions from 118g/km for the dCi 86 engine option.My test model was the Megane Hatch 1.9 dCi 130 Dynamique five-door with an on the road price of £17,585 but with the market in a recessionary state deals can be had. This is the likely best selling model from the new range.
Renault's statement that their new Megane heralds in a new age of higher quality, better specification and driveability all seems true. This looks a classy 'motor' both inside and out and not just another family sized five-door hatch. The strong styling lines and lower roofline with a rising waistline gives this five-door a coupe side profile. The 'shaking' rear end has gone and is more rounded, less radical but the front face I didn't find that appealing and in relation to the rest of the car it looks bland.
Inside the Hatch the overall impression of a big improvement in quality is evident -- it just feels and looks a better product. It is not all perfect but it is easy to live with. Good quality materials are used throughout, the equipment levels are higher and the part digital, part analogue dials fit happily together.
The centre console controls are a bit fussy and it takes time to get used to them. Being long legged I found it difficult to get my legs under the steering wheel during entry or exiting the Hatch even though the seat and steering column are height and reach adjustable.
