Remember the Honda CR-X of the late Eighties and early Nineties? Well this is Honda’s modern version. It’s called the Honda CR-Z and it’s just been unveiled at AIMS, Darling Habour.
The car is a hybrid sports concept that uses both petrol power and electric power for the optimum blend in efficiency and driving pleasure. Petrol power is provided through a 1.5-litre four cylinder engine offering 91kW of power and 174Nm of torque.
Backed up by an electric motor, the car can be driven in three driving modes, through the 3-Mode Drive System. With a sporty chassis and manual transmission, it’s seen as a sports car of the future.
Also on the stands was a specially developed Mugen Honda CR-Z which emphasised the whole ‘sports’ philosophy to the extreme.
