We are always at the mercy of manufacturers making last minute changes to launch and delivery dates but these are some of the new cars making their showroom debuts this month which you can come and talk to us about.
This is the sixth generation car to carry this name and shares much of its design and components with the widely acclaimed SEAT Ibiza we introduced last year. For the technically minded, they are both built on the VW Group’s MQB A0 platform but for those who are not, you will find it is slightly bigger inside, has a much, much better ride and the connectivity/infotainment is now more sophisticated and easier to use. We will also offer it with a much greater choice of how you spec the colour/trim options so there is greater scope to personalise it.
Bigger and better riding but with the trademark value for money with prices due to start at around £13,500 to £14,000. Prepare to meet the new class leader.
A smaller entry model for those wanting a Jaguar SUV and designed to follow in the wheel tracks of the bigger and hugely successful F-PACE. There is a front wheel drive model but the rest have all-wheel drive and it has a good mix of the latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines.
You will find the same quality interior as the company’s other cars and SUVs and the huge infotainment screen gives it another advantage over rivals.
Prices should come in at around £28,500.
This is an all-new vehicle and Jeep’s rival to cars such as the Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan. There will be a choice of petrol and diesel engines, it will have the excellent off-road ability which is the bedrock of Jeep’s brand and will put it at the forefront of the market for people who drive off-piste when towing something like a horsebox, boat or caravan.
Prices start from around £23,000.
DS is the luxury arm of the Peugeot-Citroen group and this is its new SUV being put forward as an alternative to something like the Audi Q5 or Range Rover Evoque. It has strong styling outside, a premium interior and there will be a new 1.5-litre diesel engine under the bonnet.
The 7 Crossback is also likely to be the first DS to be offered as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. It’s expected to undercut all of its main rivals, such as the Range Rover Evoque.
Prices from around £28,000.
It’s perhaps stretching a point to call it a brand new car but the Range Rover is being updated inside and out – and now has a plug in hybrid engine. There are detail changes to areas such as the radiator grille and bumpers externally and a new infotainment system and seats internally but the big news is what lies under the bonnet. With perfect timing given the way the market is fast evolving the Range Rover is now available with a 2.0 litre petrol engine with an electric motor which has a range of more than 30 miles in zero-emission mode.
Price start at £79,595.
