Honda’s CRX, the two-seat, extraordinarily-entertaining sports left us in 1992. Its replacement was a far practical targa roof called the Del Sol that didn’t very well and ultimately the model. Finally, Honda has a CRX replacement, the upcoming 2011

Like the first CRX, a two-seat hatchback, but it dramatically from the original formula.

it goes on sale later summer, the CR-Z will be as only a gas-electric hybrid, a powertrain that employs Integrated Motor Assist This elegantly simple sandwiches an electric motor the engine and transmission. The gas engine is a 16-valve four-cylinder that’s identical to the one in the Honda Fit. It Honda’s VTEC valvetrain to juggle the valve operation for efficiency.

A 13 hp electric motor kicks in to low-end acceleration and also the start-stop feature. Combined, the two produce a maximum of 122 horsepower.
