Mitsubishi Express reborn: Australian future for Renault Trafic-based van

Mitsubishi Motors has signed a letter of intent to source rebadged Renault Trafic vans out of France, to sell in Australia and New Zealand, with an expected launch time as soon as next year. Naturally, speculation suggests that this model could mark a return of the well-known, but defunct since 2013, Mitsubishi Express. It’ll certainly satisfy the company’s desire in Australia to launch more commercial vehicles and broaden its offerings to its fleet customers.

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe recalled

Hyundai has recalled the latest (TM) Santa Fe over an issue with the rear curtain airbag, unrelated to the ongoing Takata airbag recall. According to the company, a protruding mounting bolt can damage the fabric of the curtain airbag, leading to less-than-perfect inflation or deployment in an accident. Hyundai is at pains to point out the fact there's no risk of shrapnel, the likes of which makes certain Takata inflators deadly, upon deployment.
