These days, Arlington drivers want the best of both worlds: efficiency and sportiness. With the 2013 Honda CR-Z, a new sporty hybrid from Honda, you can have both for an affordable price.
Take a look at the three things that have put the spotlight on the new Honda CR-Z.
If you’re looking for a car that turns heads, the Honda CR-Z’s wide stance, petite rear hatch, and massive grille give it a sporty look no other hybrid can match. This design scheme carries to the inside of the car, too. Details like a digital speedometer, an unusually shaped yet intuitively designed dashboard, and soft materials make the Honda CR-Z a pleasure to ride in on a daily basis.
Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) Hybrid Technology
The 1.5L gasoline engine, and 10-killowat electric motor, gives the Honda CR-Z a total of 122 horsepower. IMA Technology regulates the delivery of power from the electric motor for optimal performance and efficiency, so you can be sure that torque is smooth and immediate as soon as you press on the gas pedal. Furthermore, you’ll enjoy savings at the pump with the Honda CR-Z’s fuel economy rating of 35 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway when equipped with the continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Three-Mode Drive System
To add maximum control to the Honda CR-Z, engineers equipped the car with a three-mode drive system. In Normal mode, all drivability settings are standard. Choose Sport mode if you want to increase steering and throttle response for a sporty driving experience, or opt for Econ mode if you want to sacrifice throttle response in order to maximize the CR-Z’s fuel economy. The driving mode selector is right next to the steering wheel, which allows for you to easily change your mind as you drive.
