    smart forfour

    SMART moves from niche two-seaters to the supermini sector with 40% of the forfour's components shared with the new Mitsubishi Colt and a choice of three petrol engines or a common rail diesel. Two-tone styling stands out and the interior styling is also different from the mainstream with bright colours options and cushions. Likely to be a hit with user-choosers and fleets whose vehicles enjoy a high profile.

    Saab 9-3 1.9 TiD

    Saab finally ditches its old-technology four-cylinder turbodiesel for Fiat's Multijet system as found in Alfa Romeos, Vectras, Signums and soon Astras. However, with a strong turbo heritage the company says its own engineers have had input into the product. Expect improvements in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions over the old 2.2TiD, which should give the car extra fleet appeal.
