Why the 2014 Honda CR-Z?

Exterior styling

The exterior styling is great, I get lots of positive comments.

Interior styling

The interior styling is good overal but some details could be improved.

Color choices

I liked almost all the color choices, the Milano red was my favorite.

Powertrain performance

The powertrain is very well designed. The integrated motor assist adds a lot of low end torque and the engine revs freely with almost no vibration. The manual transmission shifts smoothly and the 6 speeds are spaced well.

Fuel economy

I have averaged about 40 MPG for the 3500 miles I have driven. I feel this is very good since most of my driving has lots of hills, stops, turns, and the speed limit on our interstate highways is 70 MPH.

Why Not the 2014 Honda CR-Z?

Ride smoothness

The ride is not punishing but could be smoother.


The noise is not unusual for this price range but could be quieter.

Other Features of the 2014 Honda CR-Z

Front seat support & comfort

The front seats are very comfortable and supportive.

Driving position & visibility

There is a lot of adjustment available for seat and steering wheel positions. I had no trouble finding a good driving position with good front visibility.

Interior storage compartments

There are lots of storage compartments. One compartment is cooled by the A/C.

Cargo capacity

The cargo capacity is adequate for most needs.

Controls and instruments

The controls and instruments are very futuristic in style but work well and give a lot of information.


The CR-Z is a great little car for anyone looking fora reliable, fun to drive, and economical 2 seater. It is very good looking andhas very good quality for its price range
