If the engine isn’t powerful enough for you, why not consider the Honda Fit Hybrid - with prices starting at $80,000. This 1.5 litre engine bumps the power output to 135 brake horsepower and fuel economy at a mind boggling 37.2 km/l. With a 40 litre fuel tank, this car can do about 1200 - 1480 km per tank !

Do also consider the Honda Jazz from Kah Motor (which is the official Honda dealer in Singapore). The Honda Jazz is essentially the same car as the Honda Fit but with a different name.
