Seat Ecomotive – round-upA new 1.6D Ecomotive engine is coming next year to the Altea and Leon range. Now with stop-start, CO2 will drop below 100g/km, qualifying for free road tax
Seat Leon Cupra ROn sale JanuaryPrice £23,500With peak power of 261bhp channelled through the front wheels, acceleration is rapid: 0-62mph in 6.1sec. But the firm ride could be punishing on UK roads.
Seat Ibiza Sport TourerOn sale MarchPrice £11-£13,000Handsome new styling aft of the B-pillars boosts carrying capacity to 410 litres. Expect the new engines from the Polo to feature.
Seat AlhambraOn sale DecemberPrice £22-£28,000Featuring a new platform shared with the Volkswagen Sharan, the Alhambra is said to retain the current car’s relatively compact footprint with just a slight increase in overall dimensions. That should make it a relatively roomy MPV, albeit with usable everyday dimensions.
Skoda Superb EstateOn sale FebruaryPrice £17,715Skoda’s largest load-lugger aims to steal sales from Volvo, Ford and even Mercedes
Skoda Fabia vRSOn sale JulyPrice £16,000The hot Fabia will return next summer with more aggressive styling than its predecessor. Power comes from a petrol powerplant, a 178bhp 1.4-litre twincharger unit shared with the Seat Ibiza Cupra. Expect 0-60mph in 7.0sec and 140mph.
Suzuki – round-upPlans to bring the mid-size Kizashi saloon to the UK are currently on hold and a new Swift isn’t expected until 2011. So next year Suzuki will add a new 2.0-litre Fiat diesel to the SX4 and introduce stop-start.
Toyota Auris HybridOn sale FebruaryPrice £20,000The British-built Auris Hybrid is expected to account for 30 per cent of Auris sales in the UK. Featuring a Prius powerpack and a 97bhp 1.8 petrol engine, the Auris Hybrid is expected to offer 90g/km and a 1.25-mile range on electric power only, provided the speed is kept below 30mph.
Vauxhall CorsaOn sale JanuaryPrice £11-£16,000A revised chassis and new engines make the 2010 Corsa more significant than the usual mild facelift. New springs, dampers and anti-roll bar bushes and myriad other tweaks promise to improve both handling and ride quality.
