2 things...

1) I thought that the plan was originally to reveal the concept 9-1 at London, but Saab chose Geneva at the last minute. I doubt the production 9-1 would be shown so soon. It'll be cool if it was though!

2)That is an old rendering. It will probably look more like the concept..

So thats the surprise anouncement Kia said would make during the show?
With the presence of the 4 prototypes of the Soul it would be something related with it.

Its possible or they could unveil another vehicle
I wonder if the Borrego SUV will be there because Kia UK did say it could come over
Nissan Qashqai+2 and the '09 Murano will have a European debut at the London motorshow

Funny that, it used to be a French speaking country over 600 years ago
Alongside the vehicles listed, the ultra-clean Ford Fiesta ECOnetic will also debut. The car will emit less than 100g/km of CO2 and should return anything upto 70 European mpg and will rival the VW Polo BlueMotion and Seat Ibiza Ecomotive.

Is it diesel (1.4TDci), like the VAG cars? Renault is releasing also an ECO2 line, did you see any on the show?

Good to know the British Motor Show are getting some world premieres again.

The UK has the potential to be a pretty large market for the new Alfa Mi.To, especially he 155bhp and GTA versions, since we love our hot-hatches here, so definitely a good choice by Alfa to present it here. I am 95% sure i'm going to the motor show, simply to look at the MiTo.

Also, the Lotus Eco, Lotus Eagle, Flying Spur Speed and new Insignia give fans of British cars something to be cheerful of. Now, where's TVR when we need them? :-D

Good ol' TVR. I'd quite like a Sagaris with a naked bird on top of it, for good old fashioned family fun!

No, the Fiesta ECOnetic is a 1.6 TDCi, and produces 99g/km of CO2.

not sure if this is big or not, but i saw a pic of the A1 concept and they actually officially acknowledged it as the A1. As in, last year at Tokyo the license plate said T1 Metroproject Quattro or whatever, and in the pic i saw of it yesterday at London says A1 Quattro Concept on it.

Cheers Ascariss, all photos were took on my SonyEricsson W810i, hence the grainy picture quality on some of the pics!

how was the quality of the materials on the inside of the new ibiza?


Pretty good really, looked and felt nice. A nice little touch is the sat nav holder on top of the dash - it's a good idea as a lot of us have TomToms e.t.c, and this avoids sticking them on the window. I really like the Ibiza, could see myself owning one.

Yeah there was a red 5dr that you could sit in.

The dash looks cool, but isn't very driver friendly IMO. The controls seem to be slanting away from you and I can imagine everything being very distracting when driving at night.

Having said that, I couldn't work out how to move the seat, so maybe if I had have found my perfect driving position then maybe I would have prefered the ergonomics.

I'd take an Ibiza over the Fiesta anyday, but that's probably to do with me liking Spain and Spanish culture/vibe.

The Fiesta is cool, it's just down to personal tastes I guess.

Anyone get a few more of the Fiesta. I'm interested to see how the proportions and styling looks in real life photoes as apposed to photoshoped pictures. Cheers guys.

An Ibiza has cruise control? I find that amazing.

It looks bigger than the new Ibiza but somewhat smaller than it. It think its due to the fact is looks fat in certain angles. Again, I did take photos but my mate is taking his time giving them to me
