About Honda CR-Z

The 2016 Honda CR-Z is edgy sports coupe meeting green commuter; rock ‘n roll played on a lute. With zoomy and zowie looks, a neat interior, sporty handling, decent fuel economy and an environmentally friendly hybrid powertrain, it’s a hyper-drive answer to the old question of moving two people in an efficient and fun manner. Somewhat in the tradition of the Honda CRX 2-seater, the CR-Z offers a modern take with a hybrid powertrain, the latest in safety and infotainment features and sci-fi movie styling. As with the fondly remembered CRX, the CR-Z is only for two, but has ample room for those two and generous cargo space under the hatch. Economical commuter car? Yep. Boring? Nope.
