Honda CR-Z Overview
The CR-Z is a rather unimpressive two-seat hybrid that's based on the previous-generation Fit. It uses a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine that makes 130 hp. Electric power is used to enhance performance, and acceleration is further enlivened by a Sport mode. We got 35 mpg overall in our tests, which isn't terribly impressive for a small hybrid. The engine shuts off at idle but that also kills the A/C, which is maddening in the summer. Handling is not very sporty and the ride is rather jumpy. Visibility to the rear is severely compromised. A rear-view camera is standard on all trim lines.
