2017-18 Mercedes-Benz E-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the E-Class sold between 2017 and 2018 over concerns the active bonnet may not operate as intended. According to the German marque, some vehicles may have a defective system that doesn't detect pedestrians and therefore doesn't activate the safety feature in the event of a collision. If the condition occurs, Mercedes-Benz says there could be an increased risk of injury to the pedestrian.

Mitsubishi ASX, Eclipse Cross, Outlander recalled again

Mitsubishi has recalled the 2018 Eclipse Cross, 2018/19 ASX and 2017/18 Outlander for the second time this week over concerns about their autonomous emergency braking systems. According to the company, the system might continue applying the brakes when they're no longer required to avoid a collision, increasing the risk of following traffic running into the car. A total of 20,987 vehicles are affected by the recall across the three model lines – a VIN list is attached here.

2020 Porsche Taycan Sport Turismo spied

A Porsche Taycan wagon looks to be approved and under development, as these first photos of a prototype vehicle show. The 2018 Mission E Cross Turismo concept had many wondering whether Porsche was seriously considering a more practical body style for its first all-electric model, or whether it was keeping us engaged while development continued. Well we can wonder no more. Porsche is making a Taycan wagon and, at least initially, it will sit low to ground and prioritise on-road performance.
