2020 Toyota C-HR GR Sport revealed

Toyota Japan has shown off a new range of GR Sport add-ons for the updated C-HR crossover, though it appears at this stage these accessories will only be available in the Japanese domestic market. Available as both single-item options or as a sport-themed trim level, the C-HR GR Sport range brings a wealth of performance-inspired cosmetic, trim and mechanical upgrades, available on both turbo petrol and petrol-electric hybrid versions of the company's little crossover.

2020 Honda Jazz leaked ahead of debut

The exterior and interior of the Honda Jazz, sold in Japan and the US as the Fit, has been revealed overnight ahead of the car's full debut later this week at the 2019 Tokyo motor show. These photos of a booklet or magazine were provided to Japanese website Creative Trend. Unlike current-generation Civic, the new Jazz/Fit seeks to add flair to an established nameplate without resorting to outlandish design devices.

2020 Audi A8 L 60 TFSI e revealed, unsure for Oz

Audi has revealed the new A8 L 60 TFSI e plug-in hybrid, a new petrol-electric version of its flagship limousine which claims to use as little as 2.5L/100km. Like the recently-detailed Q7 60 TFSI e, the new A8 PHEV (pictured in green) combines a 250kW/500Nm 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine with a 100kW/350Nm synchronous electric motor and 14.1kWh battery pack.

Skoda EV: First prototype spied

A development prototype believed to be the production version of Skoda's first electric vehicle has been spied at the Nurburgring this week, ahead of a likely debut later next year. "But, wait. It's a Volkswagen Tiguan!" However, this particular Tiguan has been stretched slightly and is wearing stickers that indicate it's running an electric powertrain – we already know Volkswagen is only doing standalone 'ID.' electric vehicles from now on, so this isn't previewing an electric Tiguan.
