Aside from heading up one of Nissan's more successful divisions, Uchida also has extensive experience with alliance partner Renault.

2018 Citroen C3 recalled

Citroen has recalled the 2018 C3 hatchback, over concerns about the top tether anchor point on the passenger seat. According to the company a top-tether child seat anchor point has been fitted to the passenger seat when it shouldn't have been. Although it's legal to switch off the passenger airbag in Europe, allowing a child seat to be fitted up front, Australian laws don't allow the airbag to be deactivated.

Here’s a handful of the articles, videos and social media posts that most caught our eye last week. Some of them are brand-new, others have been online for a while.
