2021 Seat Leon 1.5 TSI 150 FR

New 2021 Seat Leon’s not just a re-styled VW Golf 8 – it feels much more driver-focused

2021 Audi A8 Plug-in Hybrid the ultimate City car. If your job is making money in the Square Mile, this is how you get there.

Well, that year has gone very fast, as it only seems like yesterday that I was taking delivery of my bright blue Focus. I’m really going to miss it when it goes.

The key to maximising profits is platform sharing, and Mercedes- Benz certainly looks like it has this licked, judging by the number of models that sits on the MFA2 platform. It stands for Modular Front-wheel-drive Architecture 2 and underpins every small car that the company makes, and some that aren’t so little. First there was the A-Class hatchback, then the saloon iteration, and this was followed up by the B-Class MPV. Next came the CLA-Class four-door Coupé, then the Shooting Brake and after that it was time for the SUVs to come to the fore, with the GLB-Class midway through last year, and just before Christmas last year, the GLA-Class made its debut. Once you take into account the long-wheelbase A-Class saloon that is China only, it makes eight different silhouettes, all built on the same chassis. I’d say that the bean counters at Mercedes-Benz can pat themselves on the back and have really put the MFA2 underpinnings to good use.
