Watch our review of the 2013 Honda CR-Z.
Hybrid cars are all well and good if you’re keen to be seen as green, but aren’t they all a bit… well, boring? And don’t they always have those CVT gearboxes that make them sound like they’re suffering from permanent clutch-slip? Honda doesn’t think all hybrids need to be this way, and in 2010, they launched this, the Honda CR-Z. It’s a sporty two-door coupe that draws a not insubstantial degree of inspiration from the legendary CR-X, and for 2013, it’s received a range of revisions to boost power and tweak the styling.
The new Honda CR-Z hybrid is available to order now, priced from £20,550 for the Sport variant and £23,050 for the top of the range GT model. It'll arrive in dealerships from January 2013
