Introducing the Honda CR-Z Manual - Sporty and Green
Honda's 2012 CR-Z is green, sporty and absolutely fun to drive. For those of you out there thinking that the only way to have a fun driving experience is with a stick shift, Honda's latest hybrid will definitely impress you.
That's right, the 1.5-liter, 16-valve i-VTEC 84kW engine in the Honda CR-Z gets some help from a 10kW electric motor. Together, they boast an impressive 31 mpg city/37 mpg highway. And yes, it is the world's first production model hybrid to feature a 6-speed manual transmission.
You can get behind the wheel of the spunky CR-Z for a starting price of $34,999. And you'll find it packed with all of the features you've come to expect from Honda, including MP3 and USB connectivity; a six-speaker audio system; Bluetooth connectivity; rain-sensing wipers; rear parking sensors; climate-control; cruise control; plush, low riding seats; optimal cargo space; and handy little nooks and crannies throughout the cabin.
As if that's not enough, the CR-Z Manual comes with three selectable driving modes: Econ, Normal and Sport. According to one reviewer, Sport mode is the way to go if you're looking for the ultimate driving experience from this hybrid. "In Sport mode, throttle response is sharpened...and it suddenly becomes more lively underfoot and with a very direct steering response."1
