Fifth Gear Web TV - Honda CR-Z Road Test
Honda tell us that it's the world's first sporty hybrid coupe with an
electric motor assisting its 1.5 litre petrol engine. And with claims of 56
miles per gallon and exemption from the London congestion charge, it sounds
pretty tempting. In this video, Graham from the Office heads to the

Peugeot RCZ vs Honda CRZ - Auto Express
There's more similarities between these two cars than just their names. We
take them both out on test to see which comes out on top in our series of
typical everyday tests.
Honda CR-Z sounds good ! Stock vs light tuned HKS + Spoon parts.
So far i see no impact on my MPG. Throttle reactivity is way faster, the rev jumps faster at high rpm while shifting. Sound in
tunnel is Ferrari-like.
Both Spoon and HKS items are perfect in every detail. Some power gain is
felt from 3000 rpm and up. Spoon Throttle body comes with full electronics
mod, the engine is driven differently, econ mode driving is made easier

"Honda". Still not an EK9, but a nice move in the right direction.

recorded 3 identical situations, then i stitched them to hear differences.
RPM is limited to 4,9K when car is not moving, this is supposed to be a

impact on mpg.

2011 Honda CR-Z Review - Honda builds a better MINI Cooper, that just happens to be a hybrid
It's not an econo hatchback for all, but a niche market hybrid perfectly
targeted to appeal to a certain group of consumers. No, it doesn't attract
the ultra granolas, nor is it a hit with the sort of enthusiasts who know
their Hondas not by name, but by chassis code. Instead, the CR-Z is built
to appeal to young, urban individuals who value style, fuel economy and a
