2011 Honda CR-Z

 The 2011 Honda CR-Z is an attractive vehicle that gives you plenty of bang for your buck. The CR-Z is a combination of hybrid efficiency and the classic Honda sports coupe's performance and handling. It's also very fuel efficient – the CR-Z gets 35 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway.

You have a choice of three different trims with the CR-Z. You can choose the CR-Z, CR-Z EX or CR-Z EX with Navigation.

The standard Honda CR-Z has a 122 horsepower 1.5 liter, 16 valve i-VTEC engine that has Integrated Motor Assist (IMA.) It comes with a 160 Watt AM/FM/CD audio system complete with 6 speakers and an USB Audio interface. Depending on your mood, you can choose from three modes to drive in: Econ, Normal, and Sport. You get Eco Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist and traction control, side curtain airbags, a security system complete with remote entry, air conditioning that has an air filtration system, daytime running lights, and LED brake lights.

This car meets AT-PZEZ CARB Emissions ratings, has cruise control, stabilizer bars, 4-wheel disc brakes that are power-assisted. You'll find reminders about seat belts, an SRS system, active head restraints, anti-lock brakes, a monitoring system for your tire pressure, and side impact door beams. Power windows with the driver's side window switch illuminated as well as power door locks. The steering column can be tilted and adjusted. There are 3 beverage holders, side pocket bins, a defroster for the rear window, height adjusted driver's seat, cargo area light and cover, reclining seats and ambient console lighting. Gauges are backlit and the volume control is speed sensitive. You'll even find an indicator about the outside temperature and a maintenance reminder.

Pricing starts as low as $19,200 for a manual transmission.

The CR-Z EX adds a few features and replaces a few others on the original CR-Z. There are 7 speakers, including a subwoofer, in the audio system. There is a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, fog lights, high-intensity discharge headlights that are auto-on/off, the steering wheel and shift knob are wrapped in leather and the aluminum pedals are textured. The vanity mirrors are illuminated and the tires are all season tires. Otherwise it's very much like the standard CR-Z.

Pricing starts at $20,760.

If you get the CR-Z EX with Navigation, then you get the CR-Z EX along with a navigation system that is linked to a satellite and uses voice recognition. 24 global position satellites are used in all and you can easily find 7 million points of interest, just by pushing a button on your steering wheel and speaking a command. You can get turn by turn directions on a clear, easy-to-see and understand screen.
