Think the Paceman looks familiar? Well it’s the three-door coupe version of the Countryman SUV crossover thing. Confused? You can’t be – you should have seen this coming from Mini. Prices start at £19k while the hot Cooper S version gets to 60mph in 7.3 seconds. Hotter JCW arrives later.
It may be named after Dennis Waterman's character in Minder, but this new Porsche SUV is a mini Cayenne. It'll be produced in Germany but that's all we really know. It'll probably be rather good and annoy environmentalists.
Hot version of new Clio will only come in five-doors and will throw away the old 2.0-litre naturally aspirated engine for a 198bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre unit. It'll also feature Renault's new EDC dual clutch transmission.
Funky Vauxhall to take on Fiat's 500 and the British-built Mini. Available in a mind-boggling variety of personalisation packs and can be ordered in colours with names such as Buzz Lightgreen and Papa Don't Peach. Yes really. Prices from £11k.
Chevrolet’s version of the Vauxhall Mokka gains the firms trademark gaping grille and central bow tie motif, and will come in a choice of three engines: 1.4 turbocharged petrol, 1.6 petrol and 1.7-litre diesel. Not much else to say, really.
Citroen is continuing the success of the DS3 by introducing a convertible version. Uses the same retractable roof technology as the Fiat 500C and there are three fabric roof designs. Weighs only 25kg more than the standard hatchback. Perfect for posers.
Peugeot is putting all of its hopes of reviving the GTi name on this car. Uses some design characteristics from the old 205 GTi, but now has a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine with 198bhp; 0-60mph in seven seconds; and emits 145g/km of CO2. We really hope it’s good.
At £13,650, the Zoe will be the cheapest five-door electric vehicle on the market, and the one with the longest range. Limited to 84mph, the Zoe can travel 130 miles – but only if the wind’s in the right direction. And it’s not cold. And you don’t like driving fast…
Could be the most important car in 2013 – as it’ll be the cheapest with prices starting from just £5,995. Can only be ordered online and collected from one of Dacia’s 135 retailers. Entry-level version only comes in white.
