Default Leaked: Honda CR-Z Revealed as Official Brochure Sneaks Out


Thanks to an official brochure that has slipped out, we now have our first glimpse at what the production version of Honda's upcoming CR-Z hybrid sports car looks like. We also have the specs.

As expected, little has changed from the concept version with the CR-Z taking design cues from the Insight, Civic Type-R hatchback and retaining the chopped-off rear made famous by the CRX.

Under the hood Honda will use its Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) gasoline/electric setup with a 1.5-liter engine and electric motor. Engine power is 112-hp and 107 ft-lbs, while the electric motor kicks in 14-hp and 57 ft-lbs. With either a six-speed manual or CVT gearbox, the CR-Z can hit 62 mph in an unimpressive 9.7 seconds just a tenth faster than the Prius.

Different driving modes will be available, including Eco, Normal and Sport. There is still no word on what fuel economy numbers will be and it's not guaranteed that these specifications will carry over exactly to the North American spec model.
