New Mercedes, Mondeo and Fabia get first UK showing at Knockhill
3 May 2007

Want to be among the first to get a proper look at the new Mercedes-Benz C-class? Better head to Motor Fair, dubbed the Official Scottish motor show, and at Knockhill racing circuit from 12-13 May.

The Scottish motor show is the first time that the all-new C-class will have been shown in the UK; we won't even get to drive it in the UK until June.

It's not the only car getting its first proper UK showing north of the border, either. Knockhill will also play host to the new Peugeot 207 GTi, Ford Mondeo and Skoda Fabia. You'll be able to see the Chevrolet Captiva in the metal, too.

If all that doesn't excite, there will the chance to take passenger rides on an off-road in Jeeps and Land Rovers, and a Renault skid-pan car.

We also reckon that the drifting display should prove pretty entertaining, led as it is by a 450bhp four-wheel drive Cosworth-powered Ford Focus.

Our Verdict

Ford Mondeo 2007-2014

The Ford Mondeo is a fine car in most areas. The family hatch is still a class leader even as its replacement nears

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
