    Chrysler Crossfire Roadster

    The Chrysler Crossfire loses its roof in time for the British summer with the launch of the Roadster model. Using the same engine and transmission options as the coupe, the Roadster has the same road presence, but the chassis has been strengthened to compensate for the lack of a fixed roof and the exhaust note has been tuned to inspire goose pimples when the top is down.

    Seat Altea

    The divide between lower-medium hatchbacks and mini-MPVs is becoming increasingly blurred. For many the Peugeot 307 was the first hatchback that looked like a mini-MPV and now, the Altea is the first mini-MPV to look like a hatchback. It has five seats which fold forward, but don't go flat, so isn't as practical as some. But it is pretty and buyers who want looks and a bit more space are the target market. 2.0 TDi is the pick.
