Full specifications


The CR-Z’s cabin is both very impressive and very compromised. The driver oriented layout is unique, with a big, clear central rev counter and speedometer that seems to almost hover. Everything glows blue except for a halo around the speedometer, which changes colour depending on whether you’re driving economically or not.

Material quality is good. There is no soft-touch dashboard covering but it doesn’t feel any worse for it, the plastics that are used feel particularly strong and durable. A feeling of quality and solidity permeates, with everything built to last, right down to the buttons on the stereo, which has great audio quality.

The driving position is good – you sit low to the floor, with everything oriented slightly towards you. Most of the controls are fairly intuitive to use, but the optional navigation system is a bit clunky and lets an otherwise excellent layout down a little. It is an option, though, so you aren’t lumbered with it by default.

Forward visibility is good, but the split rear screen means rearward visibility is downright bad. In fact, everything from the driver’s seat back is disappointing. The rear seats are close to pointless, with barely enough room for children and the boot, while big enough for most day-to-day things, has a big lip and a high floor. That means it’s pretty much impossible to easily load anything heavy or bulky into it.

Honda offers two trim levels – Sport and GT – and standard equipment is good across both, with cruise control, auto wipers and auto lights available on all cars. Moving up to GT grade doesn’t add all that much, but features include Bluetooth, leather heated seats and a panoramic glass roof.
