2011-15 Volkswagen Passat (B7) added to Takata recall

Volkswagen has kicked off the Takata recall campaign for its B7 Passat, focusing on cars in the hottest and most humid parts of Australia. As with all cars included in the Takata recall, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. If vehicles with a faulty inflator are involved in an accident triggering the airbags, there's a risk the unit could explode under too much internal pressure.

2020 GMC Acadia revealed, not for Holden right now

GMC has unveiled the 2020 Acadia SUV, donor for our Holden Acadia, with a more upmarket face, a new turbocharged engine, and a fresh range-topping trim grade. Although there's plenty going on under the skin, we're going to start by talking about the car's new look. With slimmer headlights, a fresh daytime running light signature and a grille more in keeping with the wider range of GMC cars and trucks, it's definitely a more upmarket take on the formula laid out by the original Acadia.

Ferrari: Mid-engined hybrid coming this year

Ferrari will this year unveil a new mid-engined hybrid supercar, with more power and torque than the current 488 Pista. The company's CEO, Louis Camilleri, confirmed the news at an earnings call, as reported by Automotive News. We know it'll combine a petrol V8 engine with electric augmentation, but whether or not it'll be a plug-in model, series hybrid, or merely use electrification for a KERS-style boost, remains a mystery.
