2011 Honda CR-Z hybrid starts at $19,200 in the USA, goes on sale August 24 | Rpmgo.com

Honda has finally priced its ‘next big thing’ the CR-ZSport Hybrid Coupe‘. The new model will start at a pretty reasonable $19,200 in the USA, and start shipping on August 24 across the country.

The retro-inspired hybrid will have two trim lines, a base and an EX one. The base with a six-speed manual gearbox will start at $19,200, but without a $750 destination charge. If you opt for the CVT gearbox for the base, you’ll need to pay $19,850, but you’ll be getting an improved fuel average (35/39 mpg US as opposed to the manual’s 31/37).

The CR-Z EX packs an upgraded 360 watt sound system, as well as leather-wrapped steering wheel and bluetooth connectivity. It can be yours for $20,760. The most expensive version will be the EX with Honda’s ‘Navi’ navigation system and the CVT gearbox, which has a price tag of $23,210.
