In the auto industry, “hybrid” is typically a universal code for an environmentally-friendly alternative to other cars with amped up fuel efficiency. “Sporty” is not usually a word you would use to describe a hybrid. However, the 2016 Honda CR-Z is just that. Offering drivers both mainstream style and the latest in fuel efficient technology makes for a car that offers the best of both worlds. Plus, as the only hybrid to offer a manual transmission, the Honda CR-Z backs up those athletic good looks.
The exterior is designed to exhibit sleek, angled lines with a low-riding, sloping windshield. LED brake lights and high-intensity discharge headlights polish off the futuristic look. Gloss-black accents on the rear hatch, body-color door handles, and body-color power side mirrors add a lovely finished touched to the overall design.
Of course, the 2016 Honda CR-Z isn’t all looks with nothing to back it up. The manual transmission adds an extra fuel economy boost to an already efficient vehicle. The optional CVT hybrid powertrain results in a EPA estimate* of 39 mpg on the highway and 36 in the city; the manual gets 31 and 38 mpg respectively (see below for full EPA mileage details). With that kind of efficiency, you can enjoy all the smooth performance and sleek style of CR-Z without sacrificing your gas budget.
