2011 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe

Production Version of 2011 Honda CR-Z Sport Hybrid Coupe Makes Official Debut

DETROIT, Jan. 11, 2010

? The all-new 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupe, making its U.S. production debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, introduces sleek styling and sporty handling to the hybrid segment, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

?The CR-Z is a personal sport hybrid coupe for people with a spirit of adventure and an elevated sense of responsibility toward the environment,? said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales for American Honda. ?It?s the first hybrid designed to maximize style and fun, in addition to efficiency and economy.?

Set to go on sale late summer in the U.S., the CR-Z is powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine with Honda?s compact and lightweight Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid-electric system. The two-passenger CR-Z introduces a new three-mode drive system that allows the driver to select between Sport, Econ (Economy) and Normal driving modes.

The exterior?s distinctive ?one-motion? wedge form originates from its low-slung hood to form a broad forward stance. A side profile with a deeply inset beltline conveys a dynamic tension, while the short wheelbase and large, wide front grille accents the vehicle?s athletic presence.

The futuristically styled interior offers a high-tech appearance and ergonomically intuitive controls. Instrument panel meters illuminate with a three-dimensional, vibrant blue color theme resulting in a multi-layered appearance. Set against a motif of textured black materials and aluminum-style trim accents, the upper portion of the dashboard extends toward the driver to provide a wrap-around cockpit environment. The passenger zone offers an open, comfortable space. Premium sport-oriented cloth seats are designed to provide excellent lateral support along with everyday driving comfort. A mid-ship console behind the front seats optimizes cargo space. A hard-shell separator can be closed to create additional hidden storage.

The two trim levels include the well-equipped CR-Z and the feature-rich CR-Z EX. A six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment and a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is available. Standard features on the CR-Z include Vehicle Stability Assist, an AM/FM/CD/USB audio system with six speakers, automatic climate control, power windows and door locks, remote entry, cruise control, and more. The CR-Z EX adds, High-Intensity Discharge (HID) Headlights with Auto-On/Off, fog lights, a 360-Watt AM/FM/CD premium audio system with seven speakers including subwoofer, Bluetooth

I dont think its really economical for a hybrid car  :azn:
And with only 122hp its not really fast I think :grin:

Honda should have made a real succesor to the CR-X and not a hybrid car.

"The front MacPherson strut suspension and rear H-shaped torsion beam"  :banghead:

Ha ha, they dont build them like they used to.  Lets forget the fine double wishbone setup and use torsion beam suspension so we can get more shopping in the boot!  :tickedoff:

The old D15Z6 found in the uk ek3 produced 115bhp and gave 40+ mpg using lean burn vtec (12 valve mode)

I'd prefer a real rex anyday!
