There have been no compromises on style with the CR-Z. Its sport soul has been brought to life with an energetic exterior, including an eye-grabbing front grille and alloy wheels.
The CR-Z goes beyond style to deliver a hybrid that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but practical too. With a low bonnet line and raked roofline, the CR-Z effortlessly slices through the air to achieve maximum efficiency.
The curvature of the CR Z’s rear hatch has been carefully designed for maximum drag reduction.
The auto headlights turn on when you need them, and off when you don't. Simple.
Designed to complement your CR Z's stylish lines, these impressive 16" alloys definitely make a statement.
Jump into the low-slung seating of the CR-Z and give yourself refresher course on the joys of performance motoring.
Always have the perfect driving soundtrack on hand. The CR-Z has a USB pigtail that hooks up to your portable music player or USB drive.
Satellite Navigation with live traffic updates, DVD player and reversing camera are standard on the CR-Z Luxury.
The upper section of the CR-Z's hi-tech dash puts drive details in your field of vision without distracting you.
These provide intuitive access to hands-free phone and audio controls, cruise control and more.
Some like it hot. Others don’t. The atmosphere of the CR Z is entirely in your hands.
One-touch-motion folding rear seats fold quickly and easily, increasing storage space from 225L to 401L (including under trunk box).
Powered by Honda's hybrid technology, the CR-Z combines a petrol engine with an electric motor to deliver you unrivalled hybrid power. This Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system harnesses energy dispersed when you brake and puts it to use, making your car more efficient while you save on petrol costs
This just isn't that type of hybrid. The no-compromise CR-Z charges itself while on the move. You still need to fill it up at your local petrol station, you'll just notice you're doing it less often.
When stationary the petrol engine automatically turns off (also known as AUTO STOP*) to minimise fuel consumption and emissions. The car sits silently as you wait in traffic or at stop lights.
*Under certain conditions the engine will remain operational.
When you start off or accelerate, the electric motor and petrol engines combine to give a dual power supply. This maximises efficiency saving on fuel costs
Once cruising at low speeds, the electric motor kicks in and stops the pistons firing – providing power from stored kinetic energy.
This stored energy comes from the battery pack. So you keep running costs and fuel consumption to a minimum.
The battery gets charged when the car is slowing, travelling downhill or braking, with the wheels acting like a dynamo to charge the power pack. Again, you're saving on fuel and emissions.
In a world first for a hybrid vehicle, the Honda CR-Z gives you a choice of transmissions. Choose between a 6-speed manual transmission and Honda's automatic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
Available on all CR-Z models, the fuel efficient CVT has more ratio choices than a conventional auto, to take better advantage of engine power and fuel efficiency.
The glow around the CR-Z's speedo changes colour to match your 3-Mode Driving System setting. It turns red in SPORT mode, and between shades of blue and green in Normal and ECON mode to provide feedback on how economically you're driving.
The CR-Z combines sprightly handling with a fuel efficiency that runs as leanly as 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres on the open road.
CR-Z's low centre of gravity, rigid chassis, wide track and short wheelbase keep the tyres gripped to the ground. Combined with its sharp suspension, short overhangs and direct-feel steering, turning into corners soon turns into an addiction.
ANCAP is an independent organisation that puts vehicles through rigorous testing to find out their level of safety in the event of a serious accident. Honda's proud to say the CR-Z has a 5-star rating.
The CR-Z has three-point Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR) seatbelts in all seating positions.
Honda's designers carefully consider pedestrian safety with the goal of reducing injuries to pedestrians, not just the occupants of vehicles.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering directs the energy of an impact up, over and around the cabin frame.
The CR-Z may be a lot of fun, but it also lives and breathes environmental consciousness. And it will continue to do so, even at the end of its lifespan – after all, the car is 92% recyclable. It really is the responsible indulgence.
The CR-Z's Eco Assist system is here to help you drive as economically as you want to drive.
In NORMAL and ECON modes, the glow around the speedo shifts between shades of blue and green to provide feedback on how economically you're driving.
Blue means you could be doing better, while green tells you that you're onto a good thing.
Meanwhile, the 'eco guide bar' to the right of the speedo tells you if you're accelerating or braking too hard.
Another component of the CR-Z's Eco Assist system is the 'eco score'. At the end of each journey, you are assigned a score that rewards efficient driving.
As your lifetime score grows, so too does a graphical depiction of a plant on your dashboard display, marking your progress.
