Volkswagen will finally end production of the current Phaeton next year and will temporarily shut down the sedan's Dresden, Germany, factory. However, the site will reopen in time to build the next-generation model.
Volkswagen has upgraded its European-market Golf GTI Cabriolet, now with the 220-hp engine we only get with a fixed roof and optional Performance Package - and trouncing the Eos and Beetle Cabrio in the process.
