Honda announced earlier this year that all of its combustion-engined models in Europe will be offered with hybrid powertrains by 2025.

The Honda Fit, that small-on-the-outside, big-on-the-inside auto that has been bending perceptions of three-dimensional space since 2001, was revealed in its fourth generation guise Tuesday at the Tokyo Motor Show.

Honda UK sales boss Phil Webb said the maker will launch a campaign to help educate on the hybrid Jazz given the older age of many of its loyal customers.

The 2020 Honda Jazz Crosstar can be thought of as Japan's alternative for the Honda WR-V.

Depending on the market, the new vehicle will be available in Basic, Home, Ness, Crosstar, and Luxe trim levels. The Basic gets a "simple and endearing design including a front face design with a gentle look" and seamless flowing exterior.

The Ness variant on the other hand, is the most exciting looking one with bright colour options, water repellent seats, and soft padding material on the instrument panel among other features. The exterior features platinum chrome plated elements and 16-inch wheels, while interior fitment includes leather seats as standard, the idea being to create an elegant and comfortable space for occupants.

It is now up to Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow to grant a vote on Johnson's Brexit deal in parliament. The first big vote on this legislation comes on Tuesday, on what's confusingly known as the " second reading ".

New safety and driver-assist tech for the new Jazz will include a front wide view camera on top of the automaker's Sensing suite, which will come standard on the auto across the range. As for the connectivity, it gets Honda Connect onboard communication module, Honda Total Care Premium giving rise to remote control of some vehicle functions via smartphone, emergency support service and security "rush over" service. Well, the fourth-generation version of the Jazz (which is badged as the "Fit" in its domestic market) will be offered with a two-motor hybrid system that Honda says it developed to deliver "both excellent environmental performance and a comfortable driving experience". The overall styling is nothing short of matured as the front fascia and rear end have family-oriented looks with bigger proportions. The rounded headlamps are full-LED units with U-shaped light guide and squarish projector beam, and they are connected to the upper grille. Windshield wipers are better tucked out of sight when not in use, and the instrument panel is low and flat. The planar support structure of the pew, says Honda, "stabilises the body and makes long driving less tiring". The rear Magic Seats that the Fit is known for promise to be every bit as versatile as before. It adopts larger and thicker seat pad this time around.

The model debuts what Honda claims is a new electrification technology though the setup is similar to the dual-motor hybrid system that helps power the Honda CR-V hybrid that is sold overseas.

Now, the caveat: It's unclear if the new Fit will actually come to the US.
