2019 Mazda 3 recalled

The new 'BP' Mazda 3 has been recalled over an issue with its seat belt and front passenger indicator lamps. According to Mazda, the seatbelt indicator and front passenger airbag deactivation lamps mightn't work correctly. The former could turn off when the seatbelts aren't fastened, the latter may turn off when the passenger airbag isn't active. Mazda is keen to point out the airbag itself still operates as it's meant to, but the driver mightn't be warned if it's not active.

2020 Rolls-Royce Ghost spied inside and out

The next-generation Rolls-Royce Ghost has been photographed again by our spy agency, but this time around they managed to snag pictures of the car's interior. From what we can see, the overall design doesn't stray far from the stately design theme laid out by the Phantom and Cullinan with leather, wood, shiny metal and large round vents in abundance. The dashboard includes a widescreen display, possibly a touchscreen unit running a reskinned version of BMW's infotainment software.

At the moment, the Uptis Prototype is being put through its paces in a controlled environment on the Chevrolet Bolt, but the companies will move into the real world later this year.

2020 Porsche Taycan spied again

The all-electric Porsche Taycan has been spied near the Nurburgring circuit in Germany this week, ahead of a reveal at the Frankfurt motor show in September. It appears Porsche is doing less and less to conceal the final design of its first EV, though the colourful wrap is a little distracting from the slinky four-door coupe lines. There's a clear link to the Mission E concept that previewed it, along with a blend of styling cues from the 911 and Panamera.
