2011 Honda CR-Z
As the spiritual successor to both the beloved CR-X and the first-generation Honda Insight, the 2011 Honda CR-Z carries the burden of some lofty expectations. And while the CR-Z is neither as sporty as the CR-X nor as fuel-efficient as the first Insight, Honda's new "sporty hybrid" is an interesting mix of the two. Loyalists of its two predecessors might focus on what the CR-Z isn't, but they'll be missing out on what it is; a stylish and affordable little two-seater that's fun to toss around corners.
