The rich and famous are mostly seen using some really expensive cars. These rich industrialists or celebrities can easily splurge on really expensive sets of wheels.

Mark uses the last generation of the popular large hatchback from Honda. The US-spec Jazz, or the Fit, is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine. The US-spec four-cylinder petrol engine outputs a maximum power of 117 bhp.
