Volkswagen Golf to be dropped in the US - report

Volkswagen USA looks set to drop standard versions of the Golf hatchback when the eighth-generation model goes into production, according to a new report out of North America. Motor 1 says it has "learned some eye-opening news" from a "high-ranking Volkswagen employee", who reportedly told the publication non-performance versions of the compact hatch and wagon won't be available in the next generation, with only the GTI and R hot hatch variants to soldier on.

2020 BMW M135i xDrive spied at the 'Ring

We've already seen leaked images of the new hot hatch's exterior, though some new photos show more interior details than we've seen previously. As we expected, the new 1er will draw heavy inspiration from the company's latest models higher up in the range.
