Honda Looking Into New Twin Spark Engine For the CRF250L

Honda Looking Into New Twin Spark Engine For the CRF250L Twice the spark, twice the fun. If there is one recurring theme with new motorcycles coming in 2020, it definitely is “emission reduction”. Whether it’s electric powertrains thriving or combustion engines facing new emission challenges, everyone is trying to reduce its footprint. One of the biggest reason for that is the looming Euro5 emission standards that will impose increasingly more stringent regulations, forcing manufacturers to review their lineups. It also encourages them to come up with new ideas and clever ways to meet the new standards.

The brand-new Honda Fit officially debuted at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday, and Honda has big goals for this little guy. According to the company's official statement, the new Fit "was developed with the intention of becoming the globally accepted standard for compact cars." Them's fightin' words, for sure.

Visually, the new Fit isn't quite the cutie-pie its predecessor was, but it's been intentionally designed for function over form. A new A pillar offers better forward and side visibility, and the dashboard is set lower than before, to give the driver a commanding view of the road ahead.

All- new Honda Fit hits the Tokyo Motor Show stage. The Honda Fit , that small-on-the-outside, big-on-the-inside car that has been bending perceptions of three-dimensional space since 2001, was revealed in its fourth generation guise Tuesday Honda did not release details of the hybrid system.

The all- new Fit will introduce a new version of Honda 's i-MMD dual-motor hybrid drivetrain meant for smaller vehicles. We don't know when—or Honda has confirmed that the next generation of the Fit subcompact hatchback will make its debut this fall. It'll first appear at the Tokyo auto show in October.

Honda says the Fit has the company's first application of its body-stabilizing seats, which the automaker "developed while envisioning application for its high-class sedan models," according to a statement. The goal here is to reduce fatigue on longer drives. The rear seats have a thicker pad, too, making them more comfortable, while also not sacrificing reconfigurability to accommodate larger pieces of cargo.

The Fit gets Honda's new, compact, two-motor hybrid drivetrain, the details of which -- naturally -- have not been revealed. Honda only says "the all-new Fit will drive smoothly by an electric motor for virtually all situations of everyday driving and realize outstanding environmental performance as well as excellent ride comfort with powerful acceleration and comfortable driving." Cool.

Mitsubishi's Tokyo Motor Show hybrid concept might be a roofless SUV

  Mitsubishi's Tokyo Motor Show hybrid concept might be a roofless SUV The company says this SUV concept will use a plug-in hybrid powertrain and an electric four-wheel-drive system. The PHEV setup is described as being low-weight, but no other details were given. Mitsubishi was one of the first manufacturers to offer a plug-in-hybrid SUV for sale -- the Outlander PHEV -- and this concept could preview a new hybrid setup for future production crossovers. While the shadowy image only shows the top half of the rear of the car, we can see a number of intriguing details. The surfacing is sharp, the trunk lid is short, and part of the taillight is visible above the rear bumper.

The Mitsubishi Super Height K-Wagon concept, which debuted on Tuesday at the Tokyo Motor Show, is a look forward to how people might want to use Japan's legendary little kei-class vehicles. • New Honda Fit debuts in Tokyo with a hybrid option .

TOKYO , Japan, September 5, 2013 - Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today announced it will launch the all- new Fit and Fit Hybrid on September 6, 2013.

Honda will sell the Fit in five models -- in Japan, anyway -- ranging from "Basic" for the, um, basic version, to "Luxe" on the higher end. "Home" apparently has higher-quality materials, a leather wrapped steering wheel and "Prime Smooth" soft padding. "Ness" has water-repellent interior materials which are said to be both sporty and fashionable. Finally, "Crosstar" has unique, 16-inch wheels, a slightly more butch design and, again, water-repellent materials. All versions come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistance technologies.

Now, the caveat: It's unclear if the new Fit will actually come to the US. Honda's product spokespeople won't comment on the Fit's future US availability, but we've heard rumors that the new hatch won't, in fact, be sold Stateside. Still, this little five-door looks to have big appeal. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

There are five versions of the new Fit: Basic, Home, Ness, and Luxe models essentially serve as different trim levels with various trim and color options, while a Crosstar variant incorporates SUV-esque design cues to turn the Fit into a little crossover imitator.
