Planning to buy a new car? Think you know what you want? Well, before you sign on the dotted line, make sure you read our round-up of all the models coming soon; there are lots that could be well worth waiting for, whether you're after something small, something spacious or something stylish.
City cars and small hatchbacks
Ford Fiesta Active (winter 2017)
Ford recently introduced a new version of its big-selling Fiesta hatchback, and later this year it will add this Active variant, with SUV-like body cladding and a raised ride height. The updates to the suspension are said to improve ride comfort, while the entry-level price is expected to be around £17,000.
Honda Jazz (January 2018)
Honda's MPV-style small hatchback has had its styling refreshed, gaining the 'solid wing face' of the new Civic and new bumpers. Mechanical changes include the addition of a 128bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine and the revision of the single-speed CVT automatic gearbox to make it better refined with a more linear response.
Vauxhall Corsa (2018)
The next Corsa will offer more interior space and gain technology from the larger Astra. It will not increase significantly in size compared with today's Corsa, but it will have an updated exterior design and a lightly refreshed interior with a larger touchscreen infotainment system. Both three and five-door models are likely to be offered.
Volkswagen Polo (January 2018)
The sixth-generation Polo has a new platform, updated engines and a raft of technical enhancements. It is larger but lighter than its eight-year-old predecessor, with a more customisable interior. The styling is an evolution rather than a revolution, and prices aren't expected to significantly increase over today's car.
