Honda CR-Z


What is it?
Proving that Hybrids don’t have to be dull, Honda’s CR-Z is a cool coupe that’s fun to drive and own.

What is it like inside?
Inside it is beautifully finished and has the same modern dials and instrument used across
the Honda range but with a more retro feel. Space in the rear is limited although we did manage
to fit two isofix baby seats in the back and still drive in comfort.

What is it like to drive?
On the road the CR-Z is a brilliant drive. It is effortless with a sporty edge, the hybrid system
is completely undetectable. The harder this car is pushed the more it rewards.

What is it likely to cost?
The sport version is priced at €25,400 and the GT is €28,150 . Fuel consumption is five litres
per 100 km.

The CR-Z is a super car. It is great to drive, kind to the environment and distinctly designed
but not so much that a routine shopping expedition becomes a public appearance. Being green
was never meant to be this much fun.
