Since its unveiling in 2013, the Honda CR-Z hybrid sports coupe has generated quite the buzz. Before it was even shipped to dealerships like our Honda dealer serving Glens Falls, the CR-Z website received more than a million hits. Today, drivers can experience the Honda hybrid for themselves with a test drive at Saratoga Honda.
CR-Z is an acronym for Compact Renaissance Zero, which is a reference to its classification as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV). In addition to the 2016 Honda CR-Z seeing 39 miles per gallon on the highway and 36 in the city, it’s also the only hybrid coupe in the world that comes with a manual transmission.
The only reason you are not currently driving a new Honda CR-Z is because you haven't taken one for spin yet. You are welcome to check out our selection and take this impressive hybrid sportster for a test drive today.
The 2016 Honda CR-Z is powered by two efficient sources: an impressive 15-kilowatt electric motor that operates at 144 volts off a lithium-ion battery, and the powerful 1.5L i-VTEC® gas engine. Together, they generate 130 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 140 pound-feet of torque. The exclusive manual hybrid transmission gives the CR-Z a larger clutch and lower final drive ratio for more vigorous acceleration.
Drivers can contribute to the fuel efficiency by working the 3-Mode Drive System on your new Honda, which allows you to choose between Normal Mode, ECON Mode and Sport Mode as you’re cruising around Glens Falls. In Normal Mode, the CR-Z combines the electric and gas power for optimum hybrid performance; Sport Mode cranks up the power, and the excitement, to muscle-car levels; and the ECON Mode governs the throttle response and air conditioning to conserve fuel in a way you will never notice. The Honda CR-Z is one high-performing hybrid
As a dynamic two-seater, the 2016 Honda CR-Z is one of the few two-seater hybrids in the market.
Its sporty interior is finished with leather-trimmed seats, a redesigned ergonomic center console, and race-inspired aluminum pedals. Here are just a few of the great interior features you will find in the Honda CR-Z:
Honda's leading passive and active safety systems make the 2016 Honda CR-Z one of the safest sports coupes on the road. For 2016, drivers enjoy the amazing Multi-Angle Rearview Camera that lets you choose from three viewing angles: wide, normal, or top-down. The Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) system uses a two-pronged approach to improve handling and steering control. It applies the brake to individual wheels and reduces engine power to compensate for oversteering or understeering.
The heart of the new CR-Z's enhanced occupant protection is Honda's exclusive ACE body construction. This keeps the driver and all passengers in a safety cage designed with crumple zones, which diffuse energy in the event of an impact. Combine that with "smart" airbags and headrests, and you get a host of the top active and passive safety features out there.
When Honda produces a head-turning two-seater sports coupe with a hybrid engine like the CR-Z, you know it’s worth checking out. Whether you currently drive a coupe or have always wanted a sports car, it's time to consider the hybrid Honda CR-Z.
