Volk­swa­gen Golf R

The eighth gen­er­a­tion of Volk­swa­gen’s best-sell­ing model isn’t due un­til late next year at the ear­li­est, so we can ex­pect a late-life re­fresh of the Golf VII to roll in well be­fore then. For the Golf R ( pic­tured with base-model rims), these spy im­ages show that run­ning tweaks may be lim­ited to a re­designed front bumper fea­tur­ing a much wider air in­take. The head­light in­serts, which keep the sig­na­ture ‘W’ day­time run­ning lights, also ap­pear to fea­ture full LED lamps for low- and high-beam, in­di­cat­ing the most ex­pen­sive Golf you can buy will push its pre­mium po­si­tion even fur­ther.

Toy­ota Camry

Lo­cal pro­duc­tion of Toy­ota’s mid-size sedan ends late next year, about the same time as the cov­ers are whipped off an all-new model. The big­gest change will be Camry’s move to the same lighter, stiffer New Global Ar­chi­tec­ture that un­der­pins Toy­ota’s en­vi­ron­men­tal flag-wa­ver, Prius, and will one day also spawn a new­gen­er­a­tion Corolla. Ru­mours sug­gest that, in­stead of of­fer­ing a V6, the Camry will move to a tur­bocharged 2.0-litre four-cylin­der en­gine paired with an eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion orig­i­nally de­vel­oped for lux­ury sub-brand Lexus.
