Clearer leaked images of Honda CR-Z hybrid come from new brochure |

Seriously, Honda needs to be more careful with its sales brochures, not that we mind, as these new, much clearer pics showcase the highly anticipated CR-Z hybrid hatchback coupe, which is set to appear next year on almost all worldwide markets.

Not only does the exterior of the production model get previewed by these new scans, but also the interior, which was all but a mystery until now. It’s quite futuristic, but not as over the top as the concepts released up until now revealed. The last pre-production model will be presented at the Detroit Auto Show, and after that manufacturing will officially start.

For those of you who don’t know, the new CR-Z will be powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine developing 112 HP and 107 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a 12 HP and 57 lb-ft electric motor. While its expected performance won’t blow anyone away, it will still be pretty good for a hybrid. With the possibility of a Mugen-tuned edition, or special versions like a Type-R, things might get even better for eco-conscious power enthusiasts.
