2011 Honda CR-Z
The CR-Z is the spiritual successor to the 1983-1991 Honda Civic CR-X. That car delivered zippy performance from a small 1.5-liter engine, plus superb Petrol mileage (41 mpg city / 50 mpg on Motorways).
oh .. very unusual to me ..... how do you think?
The 2011 Honda CR-Z is car is rumored to feature a peak power rating of 140 Brake horsepower combined between its engine and electric motor.
The CR-Z will share the platform of the 2010 Insight, and we deeply hope that it provides the same delightful rollerskate handling that made the CR-X so beloved 20 years ago.
The wedge shape of the original 2007 CR-Z concept car has been refined into a more practical and production-ready profile on the CR-Z Concept 2009.
Honda released only the images, but clearly this year's concept is closer to production trim in such items as bumper, headlights, and interior fittings.
Honda also hasn't said anything about pricing, though it squeezed every possible cost out of the 2010 Insight to bring it in at $20,470 (£13,590) including delivery, making it the lowest-priced hybrid sold in the USA and the UK. Given its sporty nature, we anticipate that the 2011 CR-Z will cost a bit more.
And despite its subcompact (or even smaller) size, we expect the 2011 Honda CR-Z to do well in the NCAP safety tests. Its platform mate, the 2010 Insight, was a top safety pick by the NCAP
