    Honda fit is probably the cheapest hybrid car you can buy, Although it's a mild hybrid, it gives decent mileage and offer good value for money in this segment of the market. It is available as a Hatch-back or station wagon body style. The later is called Honda Fit Shuttle Hybrid and it was only released in Japanese Domestic Market.

    Please use this thread as a platform to share your pictures, mileage, questions, comments or other suggestions regarding Honda Fit Hybrid or other cars with Honda IMA (Integrated Motor Assist).

    Some Details from Wikipedia: Sales of the Fit Hybrid began in Japan in October 2010. The hybrid version starts at ?1.59 million (around US$20,000), the lowest price for a gasoline-hybrid electric vehicle sold in Japan. The Fit Hybrid features a 1.3-litre engine and electric motor, with an estimated fuel economy of 3.3 litres per 100 kilometres (86 mpg-imp; 71 mpg-US) measured in accordance with Japanese 10?15 cycle. The car uses a parallel hybrid system that works in tandem with the gasoline engine. The parallel hybrid system is simple and lightweight while enhances driving performance and fuel economy.

    i intented to break your record in this drive but than i took pity and let it go.
    So if you ever come here again braging about your fuel mileage i will break your record and than will post that here and even at Prius forum and will tell them that this is in response to your pathetic effort to look down at a honda fit.
    BTW aqua has even less cabin and boot space and its acceleration is pathetic.Lol i dont know why they have those body kits to give it a look like a sport hatchback ??
    Unfortunately he is true, fit is no match for aqua which is most fuel efficient hybrid of world and there is consensus on that so no matter what you say facts are facts.

    I think new fit 2013 above is more fuel efficient than its predecessor and almost equal to aqua, plus it has more stylish interior as well as exterior. i was just checking the price honda fit hybrid new model cost is less than aqua in japan. We will be seeing more fit in coming years this new model is better in design as well as in engine. I would prefer 2013 hybrid fit in 16-17 lacs over aqua any day, but this will happend in 2016 mid since 2013 is expensive in auction in japan, like most imported aqua are 2011 and 2012 model.

    I am honda fit hybrid fanboy no need to convince me :p. I was just saying that 2013 on-wards model is as much fuel efficient as Aqua and on top of that it is highly stylish inside out, good thing is that it is little less expensive than Aqua, so in coming years we might be seeing Honda Fit 2013 onwards model here in Pakistan more. One more good thing is, it is based on same Tech as on Honda Vezzel which is already captured its market here.

    True
    Toyota shud overcome this issue

    Atleast thr car shud br able to move

    If the HSD gets fried

    But that usually doesnt happen till 300,000 kms

    Still this is a plus to IMA

    Some more consumption figures!

    The first one is just to show that numbers from individual short trips can be meaningless. This is Islamabad driving, econ mode on, (no AC these days) tyres 185/65R15, tyre pressure 32psi front, 30 psi rear, two people on board, gentle driving (with aim for good figures!). The numbers are real, but probably cannot be achieved on regular basis!

    The second is the trip to Lahore via motorway. This one is with Cruise control on and set at max (110kmph ) where possible. 2 people + plenty luggage.

    One thing that needs clarifying, when the car was running original 175/65R15 tyres on original steel wheels, the consumption numbers were very close between car computer and what I got with fuel pump top-up to top-up, less than half kmpl difference. Now with the new slightly bigger size tyres on Honda alloys, its more like 1.5kmpl difference. With bigger tyres, consumption has gone down, even if I count in the 2% increased difference in distance covered due to bigger tyre. The speedometer error is now negligible compared to Garmin or other GPS readings!

    Conclusion is that, after having driven nearly 3000 km in last few months, with the kind of routine driving that I undertake, I am now getting 19kmpl around town. On motorway, with cruise set at 110kmph it gives around 18kmpl. My trip to Lahore with plenty in city driving in Lahore, overall gave 18.5kmpl over 950km! All figures are pump top-up to top-up.

    Hello,

    Among conventionally powered vehicles, Honda?s completely redesigned 2015 Fit blends respectable mpg, utility, and reasonable price.

    Not quite the ?TARDIS? of Dr. Who fame which outwardly appeared tiny, but inwardly expanded to large proportions, Honda?s subcompact is nonetheless a case study in smart space utilization.

    RS 1800 per can.
    or you can at dealtoday
    Honda Fit Hybrid Owners and Fans Club -1639905

    My advice and what i am doing.i have bought chineese copy of it from local shop RS 500 per can.becasue i want to learn and experiment which combination i like most.than i will plastidip it,as plastidip is rather expensive.
    So far i have noted for 16" rim one can will be needed.so its near Rs 8000 for all wheels.plus if you want to paint brake calipers with a diff color than add 1800 more to it.so its near 10,000.and if you want to dip whole car than near 25K.
    Thats why i am experimenting with chineese copy to make sure i dont waste Rs 10,000.
    today i am gonna dip front rim and will post both pics togather

    Done the front rim.i think i like front one more,looks decent.i planned on red lugs paint but at last moment red can finished.so i did black all the lugs.ignore the cat,she loves to sit on hood when car comes from outside,it knows its warm.

    and for your answer i did 3 coats. 1st coat just to get a firm base grip and let it dry.dont worry about transparency in 1st coat,as in 1st coat its not our target to get full color change.and i think chineese copy is bit thin.the actual plastidip may cover two rims in one can.
    i bought it from lahore near model town link road decoration shops.its only at one shop.he brings it from Mentgomery road.so if you are near model town here is num of guy 03204529069.just tell him which color to keep in stock for you.currently only three color,red,black and blue.
    but we know plastidip has lot more colors,but 1st experiment and learn from this chineese version than buy plastidip.
