An updated Volkswagen Golf GTI arrives for the 2025 model year, and overseas there will be a limited-edition Clubsport version packing close to 300 hp. The Golf GTI Clubsport was revealed over the weekend and will feature a chassis setting developed specifically for driving on the Nürburgring.

Alfa Romeo in April added a fourth model line in the form of the Junior subcompact crossover. Next in the pipeline are redesigned versions of the Stelvio and Giulia, and then Alfa Romeo will add a fifth model line that's likely to be a midsize SUV.

The Alpine Formula 1 team will drop current driver Esteban Ocon at the end of the 2024 season. Rather than a reaction to the crash he caused in the recent Monaco Grand Prix while attempting to overtake his own teammate, the move is simply the latest change in an ongoing operational restructure at the squad.
