In an effort to fight declining sales, the next-generation Renault Modus could become a crossover that is heavily influenced by the Nissan Juke.

New details are starting to emerge about the 2013 Renault Modus.

Automotive News is reporting the model will become a crossover that is heavily influenced by the Nissan Juke. The change is a result of declining consumer interest which has caused Modus sales to tumble from 166,858 units in 2005 to 48,590 units in 2011.

There's no word on what will power the model, but it will reportedly be launched next year and built at the company's plant in Valladolid, Spain.
