Nor will there be a three-door version, reflecting a broader industry trend. What may be a concern for buyers is the unusually fast development time of the Corsa. PSA effectively broke the work that Vauxhall had done when the purchase occurred, so the supermini rushed from the drawing board to the inauguration in just two years. But PSA has more experience than most when it comes to small cars, and Opel-Vauxhall boss Michael Lohscheller insists that the new car “will not be compromised in any way. Well find out if thats the case by the end of the year.

Bentley Bentayga Speed
The Bentley Bentayga Speed will be the new flagship model in the SUV range, with the aim of offering the ultimate balance between performance and luxury.
The Bentayga Speed will use the companys 6.0-liter dual-turbocharged W12 gasoline engine, with hardware and software upgrades to increase power from 600 bhp to 650 bhp, along with revisions to the eight-speed automatic gearbox that will likely result in a top speed of 190 mph and a 0-62 mph time of less than 4.0 seconds.
The 650 bhp production will make the Bentayga Speed more powerful than the 631 bhp Lamborghini Urus, with which it shares many of its pillars, plus a number of styling changes both indoors and outdoors and an initial price of around £185,000.

McLaren 600LT Spider
For anyone who finds the McLaren model range a little confusing, the 600LT is essentially a 570S faster, lighter, and more agile. It is therefore logical that the 600LT Spider, planned for the end of this year, is the continuation of the 570S Spider. It will use a folding hardtop made of lightweight material and, as such, should offer almost identical performance and a driving experience similar to that of a coupe.

This is Mercedes rival to the electric Tesla Model X and the first car in its crucial EQ range, which is expected to expand enormously in the coming years. Built on a highly modified GLC platform, the EQC SUV features twin electric motors for 402bhp and 0-62mph in 5.1sec. An 80kWh battery offers 249 miles of WLTP-certified range – not a leader in its class, but not bad given its size and performance.

Second generation Renault Zoeis will use a new bespoke electric car platform that will be used throughout the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, rather than sharing it with Nissan Leaf. The new platform will allow greater battery capacity, and Renault aims for a range of 250 WLTP miles for the new Zoe, which is likely to translate into a real-world range of around 200 miles.
The espionage photos show that the design of the Zoe wont change much, although it looks like its going to win a front-end closer to the new Clio. Renaults goal is to maintain a starting price of around £14,250.

Skoda Small SUV
Skoda will complete its SUV range with a new small crossover based on the Vision X concept that will be placed under the Karoq and Kodiaq. Potentially called Anuq, Nissan Jukes new rival will be built on the same Volkswagen Group MQB platform as the similarly sized Seat Arona, but is expected to be slightly larger than that model.
