2017-18 Mercedes-AMG GT C recalled

The 2017-18 Mercedes-AMG GT C has been recalled over concerns about the seat belt. According to the company, the seat belt could jam in the guide loop, making it loosen from the driver and not retract when moved. If the belt loosens, it may not effectively restrain the occupant, increasing their risk of injury if there's an accident. A total of 78 cars are affected by the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

2020 Mercedes-AMG GLB45 spied

It hasn't even been revealed in production form as yet, but the Mercedes-Benz GLB looks like it's going to get a hi-po AMG 45 version, if this recently spied prototype is anything to go by. First previewed in near-production concept form at the Shanghai motor show last month, the GLB will slot between the next GLA and the larger GLC in Benz's crossover line-up, and like its stablemates it will get an AMG-fettled variant boasting quite a lot of power.
