2019 BMW X7 spied with less camouflage

The BMW X7 has been spied again this week, giving us a closer look at the company's upcoming SUV flagship. Compared to the prototype seen at the Nurburgring in April, this X7 appears to be wearing its production headlights and front grille, along with a darker camouflage with a spider web-like pattern. The front bumper still appears unfinished, though the tail-lights and rear treatment look to be that of the production version.

Mazda BT-50 recalled over fire risk - UPDATE

Approximately 20,000 Mazda BT-50 utes has been recalled over concerns grass and other debris could accumulate in the underbody, potentially posing a fire hazard. Owners are warned that driving over high grass - particularly dried-out grass - can cause the buildup of debris, and come into contact with the vehicle's exhaust system. If the condition occurs, there is a risk the debris could be ignited by the exhaust, causing a fire in the underbody area.
