The 2011 Honda Sport Hybrid is an interesting on the whole hybrid concept. It may be part gas and part electric its 1.5L, 16 valve, SOHC, 4-cylinder engine with Motor Assist (IMA), but attached to a 6 speed close manual transmission (optional CVT and paddles) plus some sporty looks, there is boring about this CAD ($19,000 US) hybrid. It even an uncanny resemblance to the original CRX.

When Futurelooks saw this vehicle back at E3 we were wondering why Honda be displaying a car at a video game But after looking at the controls and it all became very clear who vehicle was targeted towards. and Stephen spent two weeks our biggest gadget ever and s what they thought of it

The Video Review

If you have viewing the embedded video, you can the video portion of this right here .

Overall, Michael and Stephen really the Honda CR-Z sport Both of them thought it was a despite the little nitpicks. are a few more things that up on the cutting room floor

Low The Honda CR-Z is plenty side to side, but when it to head room, both and Stephen noticed that were nearly running red because neither of them see under the roofline. It obscured so of the view that they had to under it to see what color the was.

Sport-like Handling? the CR-Z is probably the most hybrid out there, the sport of the equation definitely needs help to truly live up to label. During spirited the car exhibited understeer, particularly trying to power out of a corner. s nothing more unnerving having your car try to go straight applying power in a turn at the limit. While the front MacPherson and rear torsion bar suspension did a job stock, a heavier rear bar could fix that and give the much improved cornering.

Did we mention there are no OS handles?

selection with the Dunlop and 16 inch alloys was safe, but demanding drivers may wish to to the 17 inch rims and higher rubber. But the stock tires good in the wet Vancouver weather.

Interior We already mentioned the cheapness of the interior. While it was put fine, it was a bit flimsy because we move the whole center However, one other thing we found after driving it for a weeks was how easily the interior

If you have pets or tend to things around in the car, you want to take a little care in this interior.

than those small on the road, both Michael and smiled ear to ear when driving the Honda CR-Z sport

Final Thoughts from

When most people of a hybrid vehicle, they of granola crunchers and tree They also think of little cars that next to no performance. The Honda is supposed to change that by offering the first sports

It s also the only one with a six-manual manual gearbox.

I t expect the world when it to performance, as the CR-Z only a combined 122hp between the gas engine and the electric assist but it s still quite the nimble creature. The shorter wheelbase and the Honda nature make for a drive, particularly as you throw it the twisties. It runs out of juice at the top but getting there is undeniably

The suite of standard features is too, including Bluetooth, drive modes, iPod and climate control. It would been nice to have a but that would add too much and too much weight. All in all, is a fun little car and a good hybrid at about $23,000 Canadian.

Thoughts from Stephen

The sporty and hybrid, when beside each other, to be more of an oxymoron than the given to a fun to drive an economical two coupe. Funny enough, s exactly what my parting of the 2011 Honda CR-Z It really is fun!

While the CR-Z won t push you the back of the seat with its acceleration or hurl you into the during a sweeping turn, it give you a certain measure of when attacking traffic or the petrol pumps. It s sport-like but not if you will. It s also loaded gadgets and electronics that keep geeks and boffins entertained during rush

Things like the different modes from ECO to Sport and the Eco at the end of the drive all tie in together for a unique behind the wheel.

At $23,000 CAD or US the Honda CR-Z is a value hybrid proposition that the stodginess of hybridism and looks darn good from the as well. If you don t have kids or can without a backseat, this be your cup of java.

Michael and Stephen both the 2011 Honda CR-Z Hybrid identically. A photo loaded with interior and shots is below.

Overall 9.0 / 10.0
