HONDA CR-Z review

NGC verdict 02.06.2010

While looks and price are going to sell the CR-Z, Honda's sporty looking coupe doesn't have the performance to match. Driven carefully this petrol-electric hybrid is as economical as a diesel, but push harder and you are quickly in the low 30's. Honda claims the Lotus Elise (34 to 45mpg) was a 'constant inspiration'. For what one has to ask? Keen pricing, from £17,000 and proven quality will help the Honda find buyers but they won't be the young ones the company craves.
