2011 Honda CRZ
2011 Honda CRZ
The Honda CR-Z is on sexy hatchback sedan. This vehicle is a sleek designed hybrid that offers the ultimate in fuel economy, comfort and style. The CR-Z is filling the void that Honda created when they stopped producing the CRX which was a big selling hatchback in Honda's past. The CR-Z has a very sporty design that makes this two seater a very attractive model that offers a little more flare than most other Honda vehicles. The Honda CR-Z is powered by a combination of a 14 horsepower electric motor and a 122 horsepower gasoline engine. This hybrid gets a 31MPG rating in town and 37 MPG rating on the highway. There are other hybrids that may offer a more generous fuel rating, but the CR-Z is still very competitive in this field and may offer considerable savings compared to others in its class. The CR-Z starts just under $20,000 and the EX edition will run you about a thousand dollars more.

The three mode drive system offers a very unique opportunity to take advantage of some under the hood tweaks by simply pressing a button. The paddle shifting feature is new to lower end vehicles and has been reserved for supercars in the past.

When I first saw the Honda CR-Z at the Detroit auto show, I was hugely excited. The tiny little hatchback looks fantastic and is, in my view, the coolest design to emerge from Honda in years. But having finally driven the car, I am rather disappointed.

What’s new on the 2012 Honda CR-Z? Very little, apart from some new seating trim and a mild $365 price hike. Honda announced pricing for the base 2012 CR-Z starts at $20,315, including $770 in destination fees. The uplevel EX model adds automatic headlamps, fog lamps, a 360-watt sound system, and starts at $21,875. EX models are also available with a navigation system for an additional $1800. For the most part, 2012 CR-Zs are identical to 2011 models, but Honda notes cars painted in Crystal Black Pearl are now available with a new black seat fabric, replacing the standard metallic mesh seating. Opting for the black fabric adds no additional cost. Beneath the skin, the 2012 CR-Z is essentially unchanged. Power comes from a 1.5-liter I-4 mated with an electric motor. Net output for the system is 122 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. All CR-Zs feature a slick-shifting six-speed manual as standard equipment, although a continuously variable transmission is available for an extra $650. The powertrain has three modes, Eco, Normal, and Sport, which tune the hybrid system for efficiency or performance. Put the CR-Z in full Eco mode, and the car can achieve up to 35 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway, provided you’ve opted for the CVT. Is it worth the cost? It’s hard to say: the CR-Z has a new competitor in the form of the Hyundai Veloster, which trumps the CR-Z in power figures and fuel economy, and also undercuts its price tag by roughly $1000. Will CR-Z shoppers flock instead to the funky Veloster? Only time will tell. Source: Honda
Honda NSX Super GT JGTC
The successor to Honda’s ‘90s performance halo car, the celebrated NSX, may see the light of day after all. Autocar reports that Honda CEO Takanobo Ito announced at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show that the Japanese automaker is starting development of a new sports car. Rather than chasing outright speed and power with this new model, Honda says it will build a car around a drastic power-to-weight ratio.

The Problem: On CR-V models, residue from interior cleaning products may accumulate on power window master switch’s electrical contacts. Over time the residue, combined with normal use, may cause the contacts to degrade, which may lead to an electrical fire. The Fix: Honda is recalling the affected CR-Vs, and will notify owners in late September. Owners of affected vehicles should take them into an authorized dealer as soon as they get the notice. The dealer will replace the power window master switch with an updated design. Vehicles Affected: Honda says this recall pertains to 80,111 CR-Vs built for the 2006 model year. CR-Z The Problem: Manual transmission-equipped CR-Zs are being recalled for a powertrain software update needed to prevent the electric motor from rotating in the opposite direction from the one selected in the transmission. If the vehicle doesn’t have their foot on the brake the car may slowly roll in an unexpected direction, which may lead to a crash. Honda says the potential problem may occur when the gasoline engine has stalled and the IMA battery is in a very low state of charge. The Fix: Honda is recalling the affected CR-Zs, and will notify owners in late September. Owners of affected vehicles should take them into an authorized dealer as soon as they get the notice. The dealer will reflash the software with an update that includes further controls to correct the problem.
