2011 Honda CR-Z EX

2011 Honda CR-Z Review

(3 Stars)  Proof hybrids can be fun

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
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.
