The Honda CR Z reviewed

This is an odd In many ways it seems as if have invented time and have sent this car the future. A sporty, two-door hatchback – I’ve been to think what rivals car has, and I can’t think of

But in typical Honda tradition, executed their own concept perfectly.

The Honda CR-Z by Ciro De Siena


The CR-Z runs a 1.5 litre petrol motor, combined an electric motor. With of combined power, and 190Nm of on paper the car seems like it be quite slow. It certainly Fans of the brand will that VTEC is Japanese for thing revs forever” – and it does.

It feels like you could in 3rd gear for weeks. And 2nd gear pull almost to 100km/h.

The CRZ is some call a mild . While cars like the Prius can run for a while on the electric alone, before the petrol in, with the Honda the electric and are always on, working together. a sort of electric turbocharger, you can crank up at the push of a button.


There was a movie Demolition Man with Sylvester and Wesley Snipes from ago. It was set far in the future, and I can’t but feel the cop cars were Honda CR-Z’s, as weird as sounds. But it really does like an escape pod, glass everywhere, an extremely low and very high bootline.

I think it looks fantastic, and stands out in a parking lot. My unit was in white which I is the perfect colour for the car. blackened wheels, it turned in this uber-cool city of Town, where no one is impressed by

Interior Styling

The Honda has the dashboard and button arrangement you ever come across. like it was built for the visually Every button is massive, a massive typeface spelling out what the switch can do for you.

The glows all sorts of colours on how you drive, to let you know how much of the you’re saving. Keep it or green, and you’re literally trees. If it glows red, the car is at you and you should behave yourself.

The instruments also have weird 3D effect, its been to trick your eyes thinking its far away. This is a safety feature – your don’t have to adjust as when you look down the road.

The rear is very – you won’t get anything back except shopping, but the boot is than enough for a weekend for two. The cockpit is curved and focused on the driver, and it all combines to you feel like you’re in of your very own private It’s just very really.

Safety Rating

The Honda was the safest hybrid ever by EuroNCAP up until 2009, and was the 2nd safest car overall in 2009. The car top marks from the acclaimed agency, with 5 stars, well in all aspects of vehicle including pedestrian safety.


The Honda engineers that they went out and a brand new Mini and a Lotus when they were this car. They to capture the spirit of both in its and they’ve done a great It’s perhaps not quite as or planted as a Mini, but it feels and actually has a more comfortable overall.

Shifting feels sporting indeed; a short box with a very “snickity” it reminded me very much of old which is a good thing. And my but does this thing It’s a very, very fun car to and at the flick of a switch, you can go back to Eco and really save fuel.

It could just be the best of worlds.
