The Honda CR-Z is a subcompact hybrid that offers respectable fuel economy. This gas-sipping hatchback also boasts an athletic exterior design that makes a sporty visual statement.
Honda introduced the CR-Z for the 2011 model year, and its time in the automaker’s lineup was relatively brief. The CR-Z was retired after the 2016 model year while still in its first generation. Fortunately, lots of affordable used models are available for those who want to take advantage of what this attractive hybrid has to offer.
This two-door Honda hatchback provides seating for two passengers. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is offered as optional equipment. With all models, power is sent to the front wheels.
The CR-Z’s exterior design puts the emphasis on style. Its broad-shouldered stance and bulging hood give it a muscular appearance. The car’s profile features an aggressively raked beltline and a sleek, fastback silhouette.
Modern styling cues prevail within the CR-Z’s cabin. The front row features a multi-sectional dash that impresses with its fluid, graceful appearance. There’s no rear seat available, and this makes the CR-Z a less practical choice than some of its rivals. On a more positive note, the car’s hatchback design allows it to deliver good utility.
Hybrids sometimes offer sluggish handling, but the CR-Z distinguishes itself with its relatively nimble performance. The small Honda hatchback is a good choice if you’re in the market for a green vehicle that offers pleasant, easygoing handling. Its steering is light and eager, and its small footprint aids maneuverability in cramped environments.
The CR-Z’s powertrain mates a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor for a net output of up to 130 horsepower. All models come with a drive mode selector that allows you to customize the car’s performance by using Normal, Econ and Sport settings.
CR-Z hatchbacks offer a robust selection of standard and optional equipment. Sixteen-inch alloy wheels connect the car to the pavement. Within the cabin, base models come with interior amenities like full power accessories, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column and automatic climate control. The list of optional features includes heated side mirrors, xenon headlights, heated front seats and a navigation system.
Honda gave the CR-Z a refresh for the 2013 model year, and it brought in exterior upgrades and new standard features like Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. The car was also updated in 2016. Its sheet metal was revised, and it added a 7-inch touchscreen and an optional blind-spot warning system.
