2018 Audi Q5 recalled - UPDATE

Audi Australia has recalled two 2018 Q5s, over concerns their rear brake pistons are incorrectly coated. UPDATE, 08/08/2018: Audi has added another car to the recall. An updated VIN list is attached here. According to the company, the issue could cause a long brake pedal travel and reduced overall braking effectiveness. Less effective brakes, obviously, pose a hazard to the driver and other road users.

2019 Toyota Corolla pricing and specs

Toyota fully expects the new-generation Corolla – launching in hatchback form this week – to keep the Hyundai i30 and Mazda 3 at bay, and remain Australia’s number one passenger car. When we say ‘new’, we really mean it. The MY19 Corolla sits on a version of Toyota’s TNGA modular architecture like the C-HR and Prius, has completely new exterior and interior designs, different engines, improved infotainment and “class-leading” safety.

2019 Mercedes-Benz B-Class spied with less camouflage

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been spied undergoing testing in Germany ahead of an expected debut either later this year or early in 2019. While this prototype looks like it's been painted white, it's actually a silver car with a white body wrap applied to it. From certain angles it's clear that the company has also stuffed in some plastic cladding to hide final design flourishes on the bonnet, shoulder line, and front wheel arches.
