2019 Audi Q4 spied

A new coupe-styled Audi crossover, likely to be badged Q4 or Q3 Sportback, has been snapped testing in the snow. In keeping with the theme laid out by the Q8, the Q4 (or Q3 Sportback, if Audi and Alfa Romeo can't settle their name-based differences) will be a sportier-looking, sloping-roofed version of the Q3 SUV.

2014-16 Toyota Rukus, Yaris Sedan added to Takata recall

Toyota has added the 2014-2016 Rukus and Yaris Sedan to the ever-expanding Takata recall. As with all other Takata-related recalls, the inflators in affected vehicles can degrade due to a combination of heat and humidity. If a vehicle with an affected inflator is included in an accident, the inflator's metal housing can rupture, sending metal fragments shooting into the cabin.

"Safety doesn't come at a price" in child seats - study

The cheapest child restraints are sometimes the safest, according to a new study from the NRMA. Conducted alongside Kidsafe NSW, the NRMA test put nine restraints through their paces in safety and ease of use. None of the seats tested scored a perfect five stars, while four snagged a four-star rating. Although all nine complied with Australian Standards, the NRMA and Kidsafe called out the "vast difference in the quality of protection they offer" in the real world.
