A few caveats about the Volvo 940 vs Renault Modus videos.
The US market 940 used additional bracing in the lower frame, doors, collapsable shocks in the bumpers and dual airbags, none of which was standard equipment on the European market car.
The Modus while much smaller and more fuel efficient than the Volvo is within 10% of the weight of the volvo. Its a very heavy car for its size. Theres about 20 years of design and development between the the 2 cars. In a crash I would choose the Renault over the Volvo any day. But if both cars were from the same era (S60 or S80), I would take the bigger Volvo any day.
