Sporty meets hybrid
The CR-Z is a world first. It combines a precise, driver-focused 6-speed manual gearbox with a low emission, parallel hybrid system - made possible by the flexibility of Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system.
The 1.5 litre, 4 cylinder i-VTEC engine works with the electric motor to provide a total power output of 137ps and 190Nm of torque. The electric motor also provides an unusually flat torque curve for a naturally aspirated engine - with the maximum arriving at just 1,000rpm. Both sound great together, too.
This unique coupling* offers CO2 emissions of just 116g/km* and fuel economy of 56.5mpg.
