IMA Hybrid with Bodykit, Alloys, Black Leather!Standing out from the regular Fit Shutle Hybrid wagons on the market, this 2012 example looks really smart with a full factory bodykit, alloy wheels, front fog-lights, and a luxurious leather-style interior in Black with Dark Brown cloth weave inserts and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The second-generation Fit Hybrid uses the very clever Honda IMA Integrated Motor Assist system, a hybrid powertrain that utilises a combination of conventional petrol engine and battery assistance to deliver the final drive. The IMA unit effectively sits between the engine and the automatic transmission, giving additional or supplementary power and thus reducing fuel consumption. The IMA system uses the energy recovered from regenerative braking to provide much of this stored battery power, assisting with longer life brakking components as a result. While differing from the Aqua, Prius or Synergy Drive systems, the overall effect on fuel economy is similar.
Features include climate-control air-conditioning, Cruise Control, auto-on headlights, heated front mirrors, a colour-screen Reversing Camera, a very nive leather-wrapped steering wheel, plus full 3-point shoulder-lap diagonal seatbelts throughout, child seat restrain mounting brackets, and a 60/40 split fold-flat back seat for extra cargo space.
Looking really smart with the full factory Bodykit and Alloy Wheels, finished in Brilliant Silver and travelled only 85,000km, this Fit Shuttle Hybrid is certainly not your average Hybrid wagon- compare, and then come in to view for yourself!
