2012 honda cr-z Reviews and News

2012 Honda CR-Z
2012 Honda CR-Z
Open the door on a base model Honda CR-Z and you'll notice something interesting in the footwell: three pedals. The CR-Z is the only hybrid car sold with an available manual transmission. Hybrids are generally not revered for their handling prowess or sporting pretensions, but Honda set out to make the CR-Z a car that has those attributes. The CR-Z is not particularly powerful, with a combined 135 horses produced by the hybrid powertrain, but it handles well and it's actually fun to wring out on back roads. The CR-Z also delivers good fuel economy: a combined 37 mpg with the optional continuously variable transmission. The CR-Z comes with three selectable drive modes to tune the car for performance, economy, or a happy middle ground. The CR-Z is somewhat compromised by its two-seat packaging and poor rearward visibility, but it is still one of the most-fuel-efficient cars on the market. New competitors such as the funky Hyundai Veloster offer many of the same attributes as the CR-Z, including similar two-person seating, coupelike styling, and very good fuel economy, but the CR-Z should appeal to drivers who are looking for good, clean fun at a reasonable price.
HPD Supercharged CR Z Concept Engine 2
Honda debuted a supercharged CR-Z concept at the 2012 SEMA show. The concept was created in-house by Honda Performance Development (HPD) and features a sports exhaust, performance brakes, modified suspension, new wheels and high-performance tires. Last year, HPD showed a supercharged engine made for a CR-Z at the SEMA show.
Honda CR Z Mugen RZ Front
There is little disagreement that the Honda CR-Z could use more power and aesthetic panache. Japanese tuner Mugen has taken to the hybrid hatchback, upping the net output to 174 hp, and adding a more outlandish body kit to create the Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ.
2013 Honda CR Z Live Front Three Quarter 1
Honda had a bit of good news for car enthusiasts at the Paris Motor Show, starting with an update to its sporty hybrid two-door and ending with promises of two new Honda Civic variants.
Honda CR Z Teaser Video 2
A new version of the Honda CR-Z may debut at the Paris Motor Show, based on a new teaser video on the company's Japanese website. The brief teaser video shows several components of the CR-Z that appear to have been redesigned, and promises more information will be made public on September 27.
