In DieselCar, there’s news of Merc’s new baby estate, the CLA Shooting Brake and first photos of the facelifted A1. We’ve been testing Hyundai’s new i20 supermini, the Fiat 500X crossover and Audi’s updated Q3, as well the Mazda2 with brand new 1.5-litre Sky-Activ diesel engine. A pair of new MINIs complete the first tests this month – the Cooper SD Hatch and Countryman Cooper D ALL4. BMW’s 2 Series Coupé and Volkswagen’s Scirocco go head-to-head and there’s tests of the latest Dacia Duster, the Skoda Octavia Scout, Mercedes-Benz C-Class estate and facelifted Peugeot 508 BlueHDi, as well as the most powerful SEAT Alhambra ever.

In our used car section this month, the Kia Sportage 1.7 CRDi is the subject of our in-depth used car buyer’s guide. There’s also all your favourite sections, including Doctor Diesel, The Extra Mile, Marketplace, Meals on Wheels and the most up-to-date data section in the business. This month’s features look at Chinese copycat cars – do they fool you? We’ve also explored 3D printers and look at how they are revolutionising the development programme for new cars, and take a trip to the Peugeot museum in Mulhouse and get to try a couple of excitingly rare diesel exhibits.
