We expect the SEAT Leon Cupra to be priced similar to the Volkswagen Golf GTI, although it packs at least 35hp more power.SEAT Leon Cupra 2014 first details and specsFind out how much a used SEAT Leon Cupra costs on Auto TraderOn Bing: see pictures of the SEAT Leon CupraRead a SEAT review on MSN CarstopCars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: SEAT Leon Cupra - 3(©SEAT)Cars of 2014: Volkswagen Golf RIf the SEAT Leon Cupra is hot, the 2014 Volkswagen Golf R will be on fire.

But 2014 will see it go on sale in Europe officially for the first time, and we can’t wait.It’s the most technically advanced Corvette ever, featuring a seven-speed gearbox with downshift rev-matching, at least 455hp from the all-new LT1 V8 and cylinder deactivation to save fuel.

The latest news is that is should be on sale here by late 2014.Frankly, we suspect that everyone who wants a car of this size will have bought a BMW by then, so whatever happens the new Mondeo is going to have its work cut out. Ford will be hoping a bit of chassis magic and those smouldering looks will prove enough to recapture buyers.On Bing: see pictures of the Ford MondeoFind out how much a used Ford Mondeo costs on Auto TraderFord Fusion review (Mondeo) (2013 onwards)topCars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Ford Mondeo - 18(©Ford)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tronAudi is branching out into hybrid power, and is choosing to launch its A3 e-tron in 2014 – although the TV ad campaign has already been running for ages. It seems the four-ringed firm is keen to raise awareness, then. And so it should be.The e-tron combines the regular A3’s 1.4 turbo petrol engine with an electric motor to deliver a combined total of 204hp. That means the 0-62mph sprint takes a swift 7.6 seconds. With a top speed of 81mph in electric-only mode and CO2 emissions as low as 35g/km, this will be one to watch in 2014.On Bing: see pictures of the Audi A3 e-tronFind out how much a used Audi A3 costs on Auto TraderAudi A3 review (2012 onwards)topCars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Audi A3 e-tron - 19(©Audi)Cars of 2014: Porsche MacanPorsche is claiming the Macan combines sports car agility and performance with SUV style and presence. We’re not sure such a combination was needed, but the German manufacturer’s baby off-roader is bludgeoning out a niche for itself anyway.We actually quite like it – especially the 400hp V6 turbo version that will complete the 0-62mph sprint in 4.8 seconds, making it as fast as a 911 Carrera. For those after a bit more economy, there’ll be a 46.3mpg Diesel S model, and in time, four-cylinder petrol and diesel motors.On Bing: see pictures of the Porsche MacanFind out how much a used Porsche Cayenne costs on Auto TraderPorsche Macan: 21 things we’ve learnedtopCars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Porsche Macan - 20(©Porsche)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe The Jaguar F-Type Coupe is one of the most anticipated new cars of 2014. Combining the soft top F-Type’s razor sharp looks and ballistic engine range, but addressing the shortcomings of the convertible with a bigger boot and reduced pricing, we think it’ll be a big hit.The F-Type was something of a divisive vehicle in the MSN Cars office this year. Some of us loved it, some of us thought it was trying too hard. Will the coupe win the doubters over? It may do with the 550hp supercharged V8 F-Type R variant.On Bing: see pictures of the Jaguar F-Type CoupeFind out how much a used Jaguar F-Type is worth on Auto TraderJaguar F-Type review (2013 onwards)topCars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe - 21Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Jaguar F-Type Coupe  - 21(©Jaguar)Cars of 2014: Peugeot 208 R and 308 RPeugeot showed its 308 R scalding hot hatch concept back at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, giving us a sneak peek of a potentially Renaultsport Megane RS-rivalling production version of the 308 hatchback.Now we're hearing rumours of a 208 R for 2014 as well, sitting above the 208 GTi as an ultimate, hardcore model. Both cars are likely to use the 270hp 1.6-litre turbo and limited-slip differential from the recently launched Peugeot RCZ R coupe.

The new car will take some of its design inspiration from the off-the-wall Twin’Z concept (pictured). We can’t wait, as this little French fancy will boast some really interesting features.We’re talking a ‘tilted’, rear-mounted engine to improve packaging. The three-cylinder turbo unit should be zingy and efficient, too, while the design will no doubt be funky, helped by its rear-engined layout. Then there’s potential for a Twingo RS, like a miniature Porsche 911.
