Two to watch out for from premium German brand Audi. The all-new small off-roader Q3 is set to take on BMW's capable X1, while the new A6 saloon has been given what looks like a minor facelift for 2011. Can it do enough to fend off competition from Mercedes-Benz and BMW?

An re-hash of an existing model for Chevrolet, the Cruze has been re-designed as a Focus-sized five-door hatchback. It has a big boot and some highly efficient engines, so could be a company car driver's champ in 2011.

The second car in the DS range, the DS4 is the premium version of the C4. Expect seriously low emissions meaning low car tax too.

Freemont is Fiat's attack on the seven-seat MPV market. It's based on the Dodge Journey and will come with some of the company's excellent and efficient MultiJet engines.

Crucially for company car drivers, there's a new Mondeo ECOnetic promising much for the fleet sector. There's also a European debut of the C-Max hybrid first seen in Detroit, and an all-new Ranger pick-up.

A minor facelift for Honda's Accord. It's more of a case of ‘spot the difference' for design tweaks although the fleet favourite does get improved engines with lower emissions.

The successful Hyundai coupe is soon to be replaced by the Veloster, seen at Geneva for a full European unveiling. The Mondeo-rivalling i40 will also get its debut, while BlueDrive shows the direction the Korean firm is moving in terms of green motoring.

German brand is set introduce a new car called the C-Class coupe. It'll go up against Audi's A5 coupe and BMW's 3-series coupe.

The MINI Cooper SD is a diesel version of the seriously successful Cooper S. New 2.0-litre diesel-equipped car has more power and the same trim level as its petrol equivalent.

On the heels of the stylish 508, the 308 gets a swift re-design. New engine tech means this could be a seriously cheap company car as emissions on some models are as low as 110g/km CO2.

A new load-lugger from Swedish company Saab, the 9-5 Sportwagon could be the choice for the company car driver who wants something with a bigger boot yet also something slightly left-field.

The Yaris is the latest in a long line of hybrid cars from Toyota, and gets HSD tech found in the latest Auris. The Japanese firm will also display a seven-seat hyrbid in the form of the Prius+.

Far from being groundbreaking, Volkswagen will introduce a new version of its small 4x4, the Tiguan.
