The Honda Fit, known as the Honda Jazz in Europe, is a subcompact that has been around since 2001. The second generation of the vehicle debuted in 2007, at, you guessed it, the Tokyo Motor Show. The Jetta by Volkswagen, currently in its sixth generation, has been around a little longer, debuting at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1979.
