Honda Takata Recalls - Toyota Prius C - Updated Citroen C4

 

In the past few hours Citroen have revealed an updated version of their C4 Hatchback model. The engine range has received some slight adjustments with one of the biggest offerings being a new three cylinder engine which has been promised to deliver 130 brake horse power. Some mild transformations have been revealed for the design structure of the car which could show it in a more eye catching light than ever before. Amongst the changes rest a new set of LED lights, 3D tail lights and a panoramic glass sunroof.

 

Inside of the car has also received some work during the design process which shows the car receiving a new seven inch touchscreen neatly placed into the dashboard. Improvements see the overall sound of the car heavily improved meaning a much more quiet driving experience than the current generation C4. The front seat now massages the driver, blind spot monitoring, traction control and a hill start assistance system is now also brought into the mix.

 

Honda call for more Takata recalls in China

Honda have made a further 569,000 vehicle recalls in the country of China due to the problem with Takata airbags. The vehicle affected by these further recalls are the popular Accord model and will affect models built from May in 2002 up to December of 2007. The recall will see the driver side airbag completely replaced. When we take into consideration the previous Honda models which have been recalled, the figure will now climb to just over the thirteen million area on a world wide scale.

 

On a global scale, all manufacturers who have issued recalls due to these Takata air bags bring the number of vehicles world wide to around twenty million models. This is one of the biggest recalls in history. Fortunately no injuries or fatalities have been linked to the Takata air bag fault in China but unfortunately the fault has been linked to deaths and injuries across other parts of the world.

 

The Toyota Prius C to come to the UK?

Toyota have announced that their new Prius C model which will go on sale in the United States may arrive here in the UK. The car has been heavily rumoured to be going on sale here in Britain after an image of the car was leaked in a brochure. The Geneva motor show this coming March will show the new model in its new design and insiders from the company have stated that they are hoping to bring the car to the UK but no confirmation of its arrival has been set in stone as of yet.

 

The new model that is to be revealed has brought in some new changes compared to past additions like LED projector styled lights. A reversing camera and brand new paint schemes are other highlights made to the revised variant. The current Prius C in the US is on sale for $21,765 and the company have stated that the updated model will remain at the same figure in the United States. This would mean that if the electric model is to make its way to the UK, we can expect a cost of somewhere around the £13,820 to be brought along with it.
