2021 Volkswagen Caddy sketched out

A sketch giving us a good look at the next-generation Volkswagen Caddy has been revealed. While the car's overall shape and styling should stay true to this sketch, there are some elements with concept car stamped over them, such as the large alloy wheels, exceptionally low-profile tyres, hidden door handles, and wing mirror location. The bumper designs and aggressive side sill could go into production, although they will likely be reserved for an off-road themed variant.

Renault will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.

2019 Toyota Prado, HiAce recalled

Toyota Australia has issued a recall for 2714 vehicles across the 2019 model-year LandCruiser Prado, HiAce and HiAce Commuter model lines, over concerns of a fuel leak. The Japanese manufacturer reports a production fault may cause the fuel inlet pipe that connects the diesel fuel injector common rail may not be secured with a "lower than specified tightening torque", which "may allow fuel leakage".
