2019 BMW 3 Series interior spied in detail

The seventh-generation BMW 3 Series has been spied once again, but this time our spy photography agency was able to get numerous detailed shots of the car's interior. Although large sections of the interior are still covered, this set of photos gives us our best look yet at the cabin of BMW's signature model. In front of the driver, at least in this and an earlier prototype, is a large customisable display with an integrated set of physical rings for the speedometer and tachometer.

2005-08 Mazda B4000 Bravo added to Takata recall

Mazda Australia has recalled the B4000, better known as the Bravo, two-wheel drive ute as part of the ever-growing Takata airbag saga. As affected airbag inflators age, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can make the propellant degrade. If the car is involved in a collision and the airbags trigger, metal fragments can shoot out and injure or kill occupants.

Rusty cars flunk crash tests - video

New tests conducted by Thatcham Research have highlighted the dangers of driving vehicles corroded by rust. A fifth-generation Volkswagen Golf and a first-generation Mazda 6 were subjected to safety testing in line with the current Euro NCAP criteria, on behalf of Swedish insurance organisation, Folksam. The results demonstrate how chassis rust can impact a vehicle's crash performance, which is a significant risk for drivers of older cars.

Subaru admits to manipulating fuel and emissions data

Subaru has confirmed around 900 vehicles produced between December 2012 and November 2017 have had "certain measurements" like fuel economy and emissions data "inappropriately altered" following an internal investigation. In December last year, the company was ordered by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) to conduct an investigation after it identified nonconforming final vehicle inspections at the company's Gunma and Yajima manufacturing facilities.
