2019 Ford Endura crash tested again as part of ANCAP safety audit

It's the phone call no manufacturer wants to get. A call from ANCAP advising one of their vehicles has been purchased for a secondary verification crash test. This time it's Ford's turn, with ANCAP selecting the new Ford Endura for an audit test to confirm results obtained by Euro NCAP. An audit test occurs when ANCAP decides to reassess a vehicle and ensure it still meets the standards for ratings previously achieved in local crash-testing or via tests carried out by partner Euro NCAP.

With LED detailing on the bottom edge of the light clusters, there's more than just a hint of 3 Series about the new design.

2020 BMW M4 Convertible spied

Photographers have snapped the new BMW M4 Convertible this week, giving us a first look at the next generation of the marque’s hot ragtop. While the design changes are a little difficult to see thanks to the heavy camouflage and pre-production panels, one of the biggest differences between this car and the model currently on sale is indeed the soft top, with BMW electing to employ a folding fabric roof compared to the metal unit used on today’s 4 Series.

2017-18 Mercedes-AMG GT C recalled

The 2017-18 Mercedes-AMG GT C has been recalled over concerns about the seat belt. According to the company, the seat belt could jam in the guide loop, making it loosen from the driver and not retract when moved. If the belt loosens, it may not effectively restrain the occupant, increasing their risk of injury if there's an accident. A total of 78 cars are affected by the recall – a VIN list is attached here.
