Coming in 2013

Mercedes BLS
What is it? Swoopy small saloon, related to new A- and B-Class
Price from £24,000 (est)

Mercedes’ compact-model range will expand with new saloon, smaller than C-Class and with coupé-like ‘miniature CLS’ styling.

Seat Leon
What is it? Classier looks for Seat’s crucial new hatchback
Price from £16,000 (est)

Seat’s next Leon – due in early 2013 – will look very different from the current car, with a classier look strongly influenced by the IBE concept car (pictured). There’ll be three-door and estate versions, too.

VW Golf
What is it? Seventh incarnation of VW’s big-seller
Price from £16,000 (est)

No radical style changes for the next Golf, although it’s likely to be wider and lower, with plug-in hybrid and electric versions.

Volvo V30
What is it? Hatchback to compete with VW Golf
Price from £18,000 (est)

Volvo hasn’t had a proper five-door hatchback to rival the VW Golf and Audi A3 for a long time, but the new V30 will rectify that. It’s expected to use Volvo’s new four-cylinder engines.
