New Cars Coming Soon:



Alpina B5 Touring

BMW-modder Alpina will have the hottest estate on offer in the new 5 Series range. The B5 Touring will use BMW’s 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V8, giving it around 600bhp and a 0-62 time of less than 4.0sec. It should cost from around £60,000.

Alpina D5 Touring

Diesel version of the above is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine with around 400bhp. It promises combined fuel economy of about 50mpg. Pricing will be similar to that of the B5 Touring.

All-electric version of the van-style people carrier has an electric range of 106 miles, courtesy of two lithium ion batteries with a combined rating of 22.5kWh. The E-Berlingo is expected to cost from around £27,000.

The best-selling car in the UK gets replaced. A classier interior and better ride and handling for the small family hatchback are promised. The Fiesta Active, a crossover-style trim level, will also be introduced, as will a luxury Vignale spec.

Honda Civic Type R

Evil-looking front-wheel drive Type R is still powerful enough to take on the Ford Focus RS, but is claimed to have a wider range of ability and a greater compromise between dynamic ability and comfort. And, for the first time, it will automatically blip the throttle for you when you’re downshifting.

The UK will get the petrol-engined variant of Maserati's first ever SUV after all. Powered by a 424bhp 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged V6, the Levante S costs from £70,755.

Initially, two diesel and one petrol engine will be available, as well as a hot M40i petrol model with 355bhp. The new X3 is priced from £38,800 – £4300 more than its predecessor.

Our Verdict

Seat Ateca

Can Seat’s first SUV impress, even with the heavy burden of expectation?

Join the debate


14 April 2017
The Jaguar I-Pace is probably the most interesting car in the UK this year. The first evidence of the seismic shift that Tesla is creating in the market, but also a great symbol of the energy and foresight of the Jaguar team. Maybe it will be better than the Model X?

Globally the Tesla Model 3 will be the big news IMHO.

Looking forward, it will be fascinating to see how Porsche transitions the 911, one of the most iconic vehicles ever, to hybrid power.

24 June 2017
Don't forget.. the All-New Rolls Royce Phantom 8 should be added. It is being revealed at a special event in Mayfair, London. Date: 27 7 2017. Regards Stuart Burden

    Kia's Rio-based SUV is short on personality and interior finesse, but it's one of the better-handling small SUVs out there. Can that give it an edge over the Nissan Juke?
