The all-new 2012 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupe is the first hybrid designed to maximize style and fun in addition to efficiency and economy. 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 allowing the driver to select between Sport, Econ (Economy) and Normal modes. The 2012 Honda CR-Z is front-drive with two doors and just two seats which makes the 2012 Honda CR-Z a near anomaly in the marketplace.
The end result of all this is that Honda has indeed created a sporty hybrid. The CR-Z looks sharp and is fun to drive around town thanks to its small size and quick steering. There is certainly fun to be had on a curvy road, too. View our new inventory here!
Engine Under the hood is Honda's familiar Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) mild-hybrid system. For more punch, the CR-Z starts with a slightly bigger gasoline engine than the Insight (1.5 liters vs 1.3) that produces 112 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. The electric motor is the same and generates another 13 hp and 58 lb-ft. Notably, Honda is offering a six-speed manual transmission in addition to the more hybrid-typical continuously variable transmission (CVT). The CVT variant returns an estimated 35 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.
