The “all-new” Vauxhall Corsa is genuinely all new, from headlights to tail lights and they’re brand new, low-consumption LED clusters as well. It’s built in Zaragoza, Spain, alongside the Citroen C3 Aircross and Vauxhall Crossland on PSA’s new Common Modular Platform that also accommodates an electric powertrain due to arrive in February 2019.
At £19,300 (after the £3,500 PiCG) the SEAT Mii electric makes a lot of sense to a lot of people, not least the people who actually make it. It’s a 5-door 4-seater with a maximum fair weather range of 162 miles, which is more than enough for most commuters, suburban drivers and the elderly and disabled for whom a car is their legs.
Three years after its launch, the Toyota C-HR has been substantially revamped. Now solely a self-charging hybrid in the UK, it comes with two grades of drivetrain, both involving petrol engines. Combined outputs are 122PS for the 1.8 and 184PS for the new 2.0 litre.
The ‘All-New’ Renault Captur for 2020 catches up with newcomers to the small-but-tall crossover class that now includes the similarly new Nissan Juke on the same ‘CMF-B’ platform, the VW T-Cross, the SEAT Arona, the Citroen C3 Aircross, the KIA Stonic, the Hyundai Kona and older stages such as the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Toyota C-HR, Ford EcoSport, Vauxhall Mokka, Suzuki Vitara and the soon to be updated Peugeot 2008.
