Recall roundup: Mazda, Volvo, BMW

A number of models have suffered recalls in this first month of 2020, including examples from Mazda, Volvo and BMW. The new-generation Mazda3 is the subject of two recalls in January. The first, affecting 13,768 examples of the popular small car, involves its autonomous emergency braking system. The system may incorrectly detect an object in front of the vehicle, forcing the car to brake unnecessarily.

2020 Honda Civic Type R facelift unveiled

The updated Honda Civic Type R hatch has been revealed at the 2020 Tokyo Auto Salon. Externally, the revisions to the Civic Type R are pretty subtle. There's a larger grille for improved engine cooling, and the addition of body-colour swooshes for the fog light surround up front and the fake vents in the rear bumper. A new exclusive colour, Boost Blue, has been added to the car's palette.

The other surprise to come from the luxury-car sector was Japan’s Lexus, which posted its best result since being established in Australia 29 years ago.
