Quick Look

The 2016 Honda CR-Z seemed overdue for a redesign and this year’s upgrade adequately equips the vehicle with various updates to the interior, exterior and technological capability. Its biggest highlight, however, can be found in a much-needed performance redesign by introducing a turbocharged direct injected 1.5-litre inline four with an electric motor for hybrid cruising, producing 225 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. This power will bring the CR-Z to the top of the small hybrid market, making it a worthy competitor against the likes of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S.




Full Review

The 2016 Honda CR-Z is sleek, refined and infinitely attractive while also featuring a brand new fuel-efficient engine and electric motor to redefine the sport hybrid hatchback.

Courageously competing with other range models such as the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S, the CR-Z is aggressively powerful and will finally acquire great force that will be closely matched by the athletic looks of the vehicle’s interior and exterior. As it stands, this vehicle is a worthy competitor with more strengths than weaknesses.

As it is, the sport hybrid features an exterior with a tall cabin and flowing, crisp lines that show off its energetic demeanour. However, the new CR-Z receives attractive upgrades consisting of a slightly larger body for improved aerodynamics, a rear spoiler and redesigned headlights and grille, as well as a variety of sport details. Clearly, Honda spared no expensive in making for an impressively modern and attractive sport hybrid hatchback.

The vehicle’s interior is clearly inspired by the Civic Type R platform, thus outfitted with the same sport seats and steering wheel, and additionally incorporating a 9-inch high-resolution screen on the dashboard. The display hosts the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with bilingual Voice Recognition and provides superb infotainment for both drivers and passengers alike. Soft-touch materials likewise encompass the CR-Z’s interior cabin, with the option of leather trimming, and further makes this vehicle comfortable to drive in and a fresh change from Honda’s otherwise harsh interiors.

The biggest changes will take place in terms of performance for the new Honda CR-Z, majorly upgraded from a 1.5-litre engine with 150 horsepower on a hybrid drivetrain to a powerful turbocharged direct injected 1.5-litre inline four, assisted by an electric motor and producing 220 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque. Coupled with a brand new seven-speed clutch automatic on four-wheel drive, this gearbox is definitely faster and more responsive – clearly earning the title of sport compact. This powerful vehicle also employs numerous safety assistants that protect occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians - notably found in a rearview camera and the usual suite of electronic safety systems such as anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and tire-pressure warning sensors. New safety features include Hill-Start Assist, which keeps the brakes engaged on manual-transmission cars when they are stopped on a slope, and Vehicle Stability Assist, which enhances handling and cornering scenarios.

All in all, the 2016 Honda CR-Z is one of the sportiest Honda vehicles on the market, especially when it comes to looks and engine performance. If you’re looking for an attractive two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe with even more power than anticipated, this vehicle might be the right one for you.

Power and Performance:

The biggest changes will take place in the engine compartment where the CR-Z will see a major upgrade. While the previous generation had a tiny 1.5 liter engine and up to around 140 horsepower thanks to a hybrid drivetrain, the next model is actually going to get a turbocharged direct injected 1.5 liter inline 4 that with the help of an electric motor will make in excess of 220 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. This engine will then be mated to a brand new 7 speed dual clutch automatic which will power the front wheels. Unlike the old CVT, this gearbox is going to be a lot more responsive as well as much faster.

Interiors and Special Features:

Its interior will be quite similar to that of the Civic Type R so expect the same sport front and rear seats as well as the same steering wheel. Unlike the Civic though, the CR-Z will get a 9 inch screen on the dashboard that will give the drive information about the hybrid system and that will also be able to be used as a satellite navigation system.

Safety features:

And the CR-Z has the usual suite of electronic safety systems, including anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control, and tire-pressure warning sensors. We also appreciate the hill assist feature, which keeps the brakes engaged on manual-transmission cars when they are stopped on a slope.
