The Honda CR-Z is a hybrid performance car. An electric motor acts as a boost to the petrol engine’s efforts, like a supercharger. The electric motor also starts the petrol engine, a duty it performs often when in traffic because a stop-start system is fitted.
Honda CR-Z reliability is amongst the best, and feels robust. The alloy pedals, a stylish wheel, attractive seats and busily intriguing instruments add to the quality of this brilliant car.
For a complex, intriguing and appealing car the CR-Z is good value. Feeling the occasional surge of supporting electric power certainly adds interest. The CR-Z is an appealing nod towards eco-responsibility rather than a fully-fledged step.
