It's nice to have 200HP or more, but at the same time more horse power means higher fuel consumption. The Toyota Corolla Hybrid is one good example, the 1.8 liter engine (122HP) is more fuel efficient than the 2.0 Liter engine (184HP).

Here in Germany people getting forced (financially) to drive all these little 0.9, 1.0 or 1.2 liter turbo engines with 80 to 130 HP. Despite this the overall speed is much faster than in the United States, were the engines seem much bigger and way more powerful.
