2016 MG6 Plus recalled for rear seat fix

SAIC Motor Australia has issued a recall notice for the 2016 MG6 Plus, as the car is missing its central child restraint anchorage point. According to the company, Core-spec cars were delivered without a child restrain anchorage, falling foul of Australian Design Rule 34/02 in the process. Without the anchorage point, the top-tether of a child seat can't be attached, increasing the risk of injury in an accident.

Kia Stinger gets controversial ANCAP score

The massively hyped Kia Stinger performance car has been awarded what will become a controversial ‘split’ ANCAP crash safety rating. Mid-range Stinger Si and GT-Line variants, plus the range-topping GT, all get 2017 five-star scores and full commendations. However, the entry grade (fleet-focused) 200S four-cylinder and 330S V6 variants that undercut their siblings by $7000 instead receive a lowly three stars.
