WHATIS IT? Opel Corsa WHYTHE FUSS? Ger­man starter car WHEN’S IT HERE? Late this year HOW­MUCH? About $17,000 THE en­try Opel is the weak­est link in the lo­cal line-up but that could change with a much­needed facelift pack­age. The big­gest change, ac­cord­ing to Carparazzi, is a to­tal re­work of the old-fash­ioned and low- qual­ity in­te­rior. The Corsa also gets a new face, taken from the Adam baby car, and there could be more power when the car ar­rives to­wards the end of the year.

Paul Gover This good-look­ing su­per coupe is the new two-door S-Class. It comes as the re­place­ment for the CL but with more style and driv­ing en­joy­ment, as the S-Class — which Cars­guide drives in July — is stretched to fill the space pre­vi­ously oc­cu­pied by the unloved May­bach. The 2010 Cars­guide COTY gets the most mi­nor of up­dates to cel­e­brate the halfway point in its life. The only ob­vi­ous changes are around the nose, with a mod­i­fied air in­take, but the Polo is likely to get a value boost be­fore it fol­lows Golf into a to­tal over­haul late in 2014. Here is the first look at the C55 that will head­line the all-new C-Class line-up in 2014. Still wrapped in cam­ou­flage and based on the cur­rent C-Class body, it packs the 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 al­ready fit­ted to a range of AMG mod­els in­clud­ing the SL63.
