    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.

    Astra 1.9 CDTi 150 somebody is most definitely putting something in the tea at Vauxhall. The last couple of years have seen a whole raft of great-handling, high-powered stuff and the new VXR brand is an example of this exciting new direction. The 150bhp diesel Astra is another model designed to blow the cobwebs away and allows Vauxhall to compete with user-chooser staples like the Golf.
