Renault's new Modus small car is the first Renault car derived from Renault-Nissan's B platform.
It also is used for the Nissan Micra small car that is built in Sunderland, England; Nissan's March and Cube models, which are made in Oppama, Japan, and the so-called k5,000 car for developing countries -- the Dacia Logan made by Renault subsidiary Dacia in Pitesti, Romania.
Renault's next-generation Twingo minicar and Clio small car will also be based on the B platform. Dutch roof specialist Inalfa supplies the optional panoramic glass roof, one of several features more commonly associated with higher-end models. The roof can be removed and stored in the trunk.
Renault's fully owned chassis engineering subsidiary, Auto Chassis International, supplies the front and rear axles for the Modus, as it does for the Logan and Micra in Europe.
Other suppliers with contracts across the B platform include Johnson Controls for seats, Robert Bosch for antilock control systems, Edscha for hinges, Allevard Rejna for coil springs and stabilizer bars, and Valeo for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.
