2019 Peugeot 208 spied again

The next-generation Peugeot 208 has been spied on the snowy roads of Europe this week, ahead of an anticipated reveal at the Geneva motor show in March. As we've seen from previous prototypes, the new-gen 208 will be larger than the current model, and incorporate various design elements inspired by the company's latest aesthetic theme, meaning it should bear a strong resemblance to the 3008, 508 and 5008.

2014-16 Tesla Model S recalled for Takata airbags

Tesla has initiated its recall for the 2014-16 model-year Model S as part of the ongoing Takata airbag campaign. Like other Takata-related recalls, the fault revolves around airbags propellant that could degrade over time due to exposure to high temperatures and humidity. If the condition occurs and the vehicle is involved in an accident that triggers the airbag, the metal inflator housing could rupture, shooting metal fragments into the cabin.
