Default 2016 Honda CR-Z Gets a Facelift, Probably Still Won’t Sell


Quote:
Honda has given its low-volume CR-Z 'sport hybrid' hatchback a mid-cycle refresh for the 2016 model year in the Japanese market.

The upgrades are mostly cosmetic, with the front-wheel-drive hatchback getting a more sculpted front and back-end. The front grille loses its smiley-face look and goes for a more angular octagonal shape and the fog lights have also been made bigger. The wheel arches at all four corners have also been pushed out, giving the CR-Z a more aggressive stance. New wheels, bigger brakes, a few suspension tweaks, and a a few new colours are also on offer.

Unfortunately, the powertrain doesn’t get any of the upgrades that CR-Z fans have been asking for. It will continue to be powered by the same 1.5L gas engine and an electric motor to give a combined 130 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque with the six-speed manual transmission and 127 lb-ft with the CVT.

The 2016 CR-Z coming to America will likely get most of the same cosmetic tweaks as the JDM model, with the exception of the new LED headlights, which will be cut to help keep costs low.

The 2016 Honda CR-Z will go on sale in Japan on October 19 and be available in the U.S. shortly after. Honda sold only 3,562 CR-Z units last year.
