Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition teased

Mazda has previewed the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition with a blurry image (above) this week, ahead of its official reveal at the Chicago motor show early next month. The Japanese roadster turns 30 this year, and Mazda is debuting the limited-run special at the same place the original MX-5 did in 1989. Not much else has been revealed about the special edition, though it looks like a bright orange or red colour option will be offered going by the teaser image.

2018 Hyundai Kona recalled

Hyundai Australia has issued a recall for turbocharged versions of the 2018 Kona crossover over concerns vehicles could experience compromised brake performance. The Korean brand reports a manufacturing issue may have caused the front brake tube to have been fitted incorrectly, which could come into contact with the exhaust system. Over time the brake line can be squashed or ruptured with prolonged contact, which Hyundai says will result in poor brake performance or even brake failure.
