The Honda Fit has established itself as a viable platform for tuners in Japan and with the apparently minimal amount of love being heaped upon the new Civic Type-R, aftermarket firms are focusing more attention on the Civic's younger brother.

Mugen's close ties to Honda have yielded yet another concept that takes the Fit to the next level. Typical for the Fit and Mugen, the F154SC has a supercharger slapped onto the L15A that boosts the power of the 1.5-liter four to 150 hp and 136 lb.-ft. of torque. Everything that could have been modified has, including a full coilover suspension, exhaust, intake and upgraded brakes, along with the prerequisite body modifications that widen the track and feed more air into the engine bay.

Autoblog Chinese grabbed some shots of the F154SC on the show floor and we've added a few press pics to the gallery, thanks to our friends at LeBlogAuto.

      Can't wait for the New fit Looks like it will be fun to tune.

      I can't wait for the next fit, although I want the diesel version. Can't beat honda for small cars. Todays fit looks like a frog, this one looks a lot better. Hurry up honda!

      Honda has plenty of small engines that produce good HP (not a lot of torque though) that could work. The last Integra GS-R had a 1.7L 170HP engine and the long gone del Sol VTEC had a slightly smaller engine with decent numbers.

      This thing would look better in stealth near stock mode and not bright yellow rice.

      Wow 150HP! That is incredible! Slap the largest yoshi pipe you can find on that thing and you are really haulin now!
        • 7 Years Ago
        All I am saying is, don't try to make something out of nothing. Honda makes some of the most reliable little cars around, but come on, seriously. All these mods will push it's price into a class it has no business being in.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Remember, it's a light car. It doesn't need a 300+ HP V8 because it doesn't weigh four thousand pounds.

        Why isn't this in the autoblog green section???

        Just curious, how much HP does this Fit have versus a regular Fit?

        I test drove a 2007 Fit and I'm sorry, the thing wasn't "fit" (pun intended) for basic freeway/highway driving. Even the Honda salesman made a joke about it. You can push the gas pedal down but it seems to have zero relation to the engine.

        If you were driving this around suburbs, parking lots or to and from the supermarket, this thing wouldn't be that bad - for a senior citizen staying close to home this is THE car to get - but seriously folks, drive one of these things. The Scion xD is a much better handling and peppier car (drove the xD and unFit back to back) looks nicer and doesn't have the interior of a child's toy.

        The Fit was probably the most unpleasant new car I've ever driven. A shockingly cheap interior, the exterior of a shrunken minivan, the buzziest little econoengine you've ever heard and it still doesn't get the MPGs of a regular Civic (which wasn't much more enjoyable of a car - interiorwise, much worse - and oh, the lack of pep).

        Was that so much more difficult to say?

        @rav3

        I actually bought one as a second car and I don't really know if I agree with you. I've heard it described as a harsh-riding (and it is, compared to the Versa or Yaris) but it's reasonably peppy above 2500rpm. I wouldn't recommend to seniors, though--not with the Versa or Yaris around.

        The fuel economy is ok. It's not great on the highway at >100km/h, but that's more a function of it's shape. There's a lot of frontal area and not much opportunity to cut drag at the rear.

        The interior is pretty hard plastic. It fits together well and it's nicely textured and designed, but it is rock hard in places where you're not in contact with it. The ergonomics are good, and it looks better in the Sport model's black then the base model's grey. The Yaris is nicer inside, but the Fit's better than anything else (the Versa's less hard, but it's also not as well-fitting). I can't speak for the xD as it isn't sold in Canada.

        Both CR and Car And Driver have praised the car. I think you're expecting more than an econocar than it warranted, really.

        Nevermind this one. He's just trying to be provocative.

        Anyway, this looks like fun IMO.

      the late 90's civic si was a 1.6L deal with 160hp... no forced induction. just thought it was worth mentioning
        • 7 Years Ago
        This has more torque though (especially on the low-end, I bet), and probably much better emissions.

        I drove an early 90s JDM-only Integra XSI powered by that 1.6L engine for half a year in Japan and it was really fast above 5000rpm but below that it was pretty gutless...
        • 7 Years Ago
        The Civic was DOHC with the "power" version of VTEC. The Fit has a SOHC with "econ" VTEC. The supercharger is used to compensate for this difference in engine application.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Now, I don't know my Honda engines well, but it might be a physical size issue. Anyone here know if the B16 series was much larger than the 1.5 in the Fit?

        I own one, and it's remarkable how much space there is in the Fit's engine compartment as compared to, say, the Yaris.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I love these tiny cars, and I think it looks great. After all that, I bet it'll still be cheaper than the S versions of the Mini and handle just as good.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Looks better than the untuned version.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Thank You. I blame Paul Walker and Vin Diesel for this kinda crap.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Whether it looks good or bad, I wish ALL the Japanese car manufacturers would add more exciting colors like this yellow to their model selections. They all offer sedans or hatchbacks in shades of grey/silver, black, and dark blue...oh yeah, and white. Only Honda, that I know of, offers the Fit in metallic orange, but you can only get it as a Sport.
      • 7 Years Ago
      this is the first body kit that actually looks better than the base car to me. good job.
      • 7 Years Ago
      as pointless as a lowered hummer.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I LOL in your general direction.
