In the past few years, we’ve seen car manufacturers steadily increasing the size of their front grilles to appeal to customers, particularly those in Asia.

BMW has been widely criticized for the massive scale of its new kidney grilles, including those on the latest-generation 7-Series. However, as it turns out, there’s a luxury sedan out of China that makes the kidneys of the 7-Series look relatively small: the Hongqi H9.

Unveiled earlier this year, the H9 is a luxury sedan and one was recently pictured alongside a dark blue 7-Series in a Chinese parking lot. These images from Car News China reveal that, while the grille of the H9 appears larger than the kidneys of the 7-Series, it is a little more stylish and suits the overall look of the car quite well.

Making the front fascia of the H9 stand out even more is the fact that it has thin LED daytime running lights that run around the edge of the grille and connect to the Matrix LED headlights.

Inside, the Hongqi H9 seems like a nice place to sit in. That’s due to a large infotainment screen, a digital instrument cluster, touch-sensitive switchgear and ambient lighting, as well as plush leather, wood and chrome accents.

Powering the luxury sedan is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 hp and 280.3 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque as standard, while buyers can upgrade to a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with 272 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.

The Toyota Hilux is one of the most reliable vehicles money can buy, yet it was recently subjected to a recall over a rather unusual issue.

The company’s Australian arm has announced a recall for a handful of utes locally, as they are missing compliance labels that are mandatory to certify that the vehicles meet the Australian standards. According to Toyota, they should have been fitted during the local processing at the port, something that obviously didn’t happen.

The safety campaign includes only 15 units of the 2020 Hilux, which were put together between June 1 and August 4 this year. Owners will be contacted by the automaker via text message, email or mail to their last known address and phone number, and those with questions on the topic can reach out to their local dealer or the call the official Helpline at 1-800-987-366.

Fitting the compliance label is estimated to take approximately 30 minutes, yet depending on the work schedule of each dealer, Hilux owners might have to make their rides available for a longer period of time.

The pickup truck is available in five trim levels Down Under, named WorkMate, SR, SR5, Rogue and Rugged X. Depending on the chosen variant, they can be had in different body styles, including the cab-chassis single-, extra- and double-cab, and the pick-up extra- and double-cab. Prices vary by state, yet they usually start at around AU$29,000 (US$21,200) for the WorkMate, going up to over AU$74,000 (US$54,100) for the Rugged X.
