2021 Toyota GR 86 front bumper revealed in patent filings

The front bumper of the upcoming 2021 Toyota GR 86 has leaked in patent images this week, ahead of the model's anticipated full unveiling in the coming months. Registered design filings lodged with IP Australia reveal the front bumper worn by prototypes of Toyota and Subaru's joint-developed sports coupe spied in 2020 will in fact go on to adorn the showroom-specification GR 86, with a wide central air intake flanked by a pair of vertical black trim pieces.

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for 5279 examples of its VS30 Sprinter van with model years from 2018 to 2020 (MY18-MY20) due to faulty brakes. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the brake hoses may contact the rear part of the fender liner of the front axle while driving the vehicle, causing anything from chafe marks to worn-out brake hoses, resulting in leaking brake fluid.
