Honda CR-Z Standard

Long wait is over! Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) has finally launched the All New Honda CR-Z, Sport Hybrid Coupe at the NBC Tent in Taguig City last Monday, August 5. The Honda CR-Z will be available six (6) colors (White Pearl, Crystal Black, Polished Metal, Milano Red, Premium Golden Purple Pearl and Turquoise Blue) and will be offered in three variants - Standard, Modulo and MUGEN. More after the jump.

The All New CR-Z uses a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine as the main source of power with an electric motor, Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA). Efficiently combining these two, Honda was able to create a new value for the Honda brand through a sport hybrid coupe for a new era. This combination enables drivers to have a responsive and exciting driving experience; thus achieving excellent fun-to-drive performance and exceptional fuel efficiency.

The unique combination of the two ideas sport and hybrid is something very unique to the CR-Z and to be able to fully demonstrate these opposing ideas, Honda developed two systems: 3-Mode Drive System and Plus Sport System.

3-Mode Drive System and Plus-Sport System
Honda introduced the "3-Mode Drive System"; this system lets the driver choose whether the hybrid system will be used for added performance, or for efficiency. With a push of a button, it allows drivers to freely shift to SPORT, NORMAL or ECON modes for different driving style and / or driving situations. The system applies integrated control over the engine's Drive by Wire, motor assist, CVT shift management, Electric Power Steering and air conditioner.

In SPORT mode, the vehicle uses the IMA system in order to provide extra power, while at the same time making the throttle pedal more sensitive to driver inputs. Meanwhile, in ECON mode, the IMA system assists more by limiting the amount of fuel used by the engine in order to achieve better efficiency. In NORMAL mode the driving performance and fuel economy are balanced.

Honda further pushes the envelope as the All New CR-Z now has an additional selection – the Plus-Sport System or S+ Button. This Plus-Sport system uses the charge from the battery to power the electric motor and give an additional boost in acceleration that is comparable to a 3.0L V6 engine enabling more responsive acceleration to achieve additional fun and excitement while driving.

The all new CR-Z is capable of delivering maximum power of 136 ps @ 6600 rpm and maximum torque of 19.4 kg-m for the 6-speed manual transmission and 135 ps @ 6600 rpm and maximum torque of 17.4 kg-m for the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT 7-speed mode with paddle shifters).

Interior and Exterior Features
In order to create a sportier look, Honda designed the CR-Z with low vehicle height, a wide stance, and short vehicle length that projects a sporty image. This, while at the same time providing 2+2 passenger capacity, with a rear bench that features a one-touch fold down system that creates a cargo area with sufficient space to fit two golf bags.

Furthermore, the interior of the CR-Z aims for each occupant to feel a sense of excitement when inside the vehicle, which is why an advanced design for the instrument cluster was utilized, matched with high quality materials for the instrument panel. The sporty bucket type front seats featuring a black and red color combination give stability and comfort to the passengers.

One of Honda's primary thrusts includes comprehensive methodology to vehicle safety. For one's peace of mind, the All New CR-Z is packed with driver and assistant SRS airbags, side airbags with occupant position detection system, curtain airbags, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), vehicle stability assist (VSA) and hill start assist.
