Welcome to the family: Australia gets new crash test dummy

EXCLUSIVE A new, fatter crash test dummy has joined Australian safety authorities to better reflect our growing waistlines – and to meet new global standards that come into force this year. The new $1.4 million crash test dummy – named Thor (Test Human Occupant Restraint) – will join the existing family of five safety mannequins of various sizes, who have been used in thousands of simulated crashes in Australia over the past three decades.

Toyota recalls 2020 Corolla hatch due to faulty reverse light wiring

Toyota Australia has issued a recall of 780 of its model-year 2020 Corolla hatch petrol (MZEA12 model code) and hybrid (ZWE211 model code) cars due to faulty reverse light wiring. Toyota lists 661 of the vehicles as being sold between 5-12 December 2019, while the other 119 remain in dealer stock. The defect relates to electrical components in the rear hatch that may be susceptible to corrosion resulting in reduced lamp function in the reversing lights.

New Haval H5 surfaces online with '90s boxy look

A new-generation Haval H5 is on the horizon, replacing the anonymous styling of its predecessor – once sold here as the Great Wall X200/X240 – with a new retro-inspired look. However, where most brands go deep into their history for inspiration, the 2021 Haval H5 appears to have pulled up in the 1990s to settle in a dull void between retro cool details and sharp modern edges.
