Detroit Auto Show: Honda CR-Z hybrid coupe finally reveals itself | Rpmgo.com



After many brochure scans showcasing the inside, the outside and even screenshots of a leaked video with the Honda CR-Z hybrid coupe, the Japanese company has finally revealed the production version of its anti-Prius weapon at the Detroit Auto Show.

There’s not much that hasn’t been said before: Honda says that the CR-Z will be the model to bring a more aggressive and sporty approach to hybrids, evoking the memories of the old CRX model. It’s a bit hard to envision just what sportiness will the CR-Z show, as it will be powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, which develops 112 HP and 107 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a 14 HP and 57 lb-ft electric motor.



Projected fuel economy figures are around 36 mpg in the city and 38 on the highway, but no differences between choosing the automatic CVT or the manual transmission were given. The 2011 Honda CR-Z hybrid sports coupe is set to appear on the market beginning with this spring.
