2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon revealed for Geneva

The all-new 2017 Hyundai i30 Wagon has been revealed today, ahead of its world premiere at next month's Geneva motor show. Before the wagon fiends among you get excited, there's something you need to know: this one won't be coming to Australia. At least, it's not in the current plan. Speaking with CarAdvice in November, Hyundai Australia communications manager Bill Thomas said that although the wagon is not completely off the table, economic barriers mean it is unlikely to show.

Mazda 2, 3, 6 recalled for seat fix

Mazda has recalled thousands of its previous-generation passenger cars this week, over concerns for faulty seat lifters. The recall centres on the seat height adjustment mechanism, which could see either the adjustment lifter link crack, or the lifter link retaining nuts separate. The Japanese car maker reports that if either were to occur, a worst-case scenario could see the lifter link break or come away from the seat frame, causing the seat to move out of position.
