Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR delayed until 2020

It appears the limited-edition Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR won't hit Australian showrooms until the new year, with the local arm confirming the most powerful production GTI yet has been delayed. Volkswagen Australia has now indicated a tentative "Q2 2020" launch frame for its race-inspired front-drive hot hatch, after it was initially slated to arrive Down Under this month.

2018-19 Mercedes-Benz A-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2018-19 A-Class over concerns about the protective plate under the spare wheel. According to the company, the 'protective tinplate' under the spare wheel recess could crack on its outer edges. If the tinplate has multiple cracks in the same area, it could detach from the car, increasing the risk of accident or injury to other road users. A total of 21 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

2020 BMW 1 Series pricing and specs

BMW has revealed pricing and specs for its new front-drive 1 Series, which will kick off at $42,990 before on-road costs when it arrives before the end of 2019. A pair of 1 Series models will be offered at launch starting with the 118i, priced from $42,990 before on-road costs. That's a $4000 increase over the outgoing model, although the new 1er promises to deliver more space, more pace and more standard kit for the extra spend.
