Honda / CR-Z / coupe range
IT MAY just be cynical product placement, but several recent Hollywood movies
have suggested that hybrid cars can have as positive an effect on one’s love
life as previously achieved through convertible sports cars.

this was Honda’s thinking when it started planning the CR-Z, a softer-edged
spiritual successor to the fondly remembered CRX coupe of the 1980s and the
first affordable hybrid to offer – dare we say it – sex appeal.
Owing to a slow recovery from the GFC and having been dealt multiple blows by
forces of nature, 2011 was a year Honda Australia would rather forget – but
ending its annus horribilis on a positive note with a forward-looking hybrid
coupe could be just the tonic it needs.

the CR-Z will not sell in droves Down Under, but it will add a much-needed
image leader to the line-up plus a little showroom sparkle into the
, , Will the CR-Z have to trade on its sporty looks and
planet-friendly credentials alone or has Honda proved it is still in touch with
its engineering genius?
Model release dates: November 2011 - January 2015
