A Used Honda CR-Z Offers Driving Dynamics With Hybrid Efficiency

2012 Honda CR-Z

The Honda CR-Z is the spiritual successor to the CRX from the 1980s. They were sporty hatchbacks that were fun to drive while offering stellar fuel efficiency. A CR-Z has the same purpose, but comes equipped with the latest hybrid technology. If you’re looking to save a little money, Community Honda carries used Honda CR-Z models. Still in its first generation that began in the 2011 model year, all pre-owned CR-Z hatchbacks you’ll find will be on the newer side.

The First Generation Honda CR-Z (2011 to Present)

  • Performance: Performance varies slightly depending on the year. The first two years, the CR-Z had an output of 122 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque. The 1.5L four-cylinder and electric motor got a little sportier starting in 2013 when power was boosted to 130 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque. Those models can go from 0 to 60 mph in 8.8 seconds, which is a fast time for this hybrid class of car.
  • Fuel Economy: While performance varies, fuel economy has stayed steady so far in the generation. With the standard manual transmission, the car is rated at 31 mpg city and 38 mpg for highway driving. Those numbers are boosted a bit with the continuously variable transmission to 36 mpg city and 39 mpg highway.
  • Vehicle Features: Starting in 2013, Honda equipped their lineup with more standard features like Bluetooth connectivity, the i-Mid infotainment system, and a rearview camera. Besides the base trim, there’s also an EX trim and an optional navigation package that has a touchscreen interface.
  • Safety Features: A used CR-Z comes with a variety of safety features from antilock brakes and stability control to a suite of airbags including protection for front and backseat passengers. The driver and front passenger also get active head restraints.
