2014 Honda CR-Z - super efficient sport hybrid
|   Friday, October 11, 2013
The first CR-Z model from Honda was unveiled in 2010 and it has gained a lot of popularity ever since. Thus, Honda has decided that it is time for another new and improved version of the efficient vehicle.

As probably expected, the new 2014 CR-Z will feature a redesigned bumper and also a new, restyled grille. However, these are not the main changes, the most important ones regard the engine performance. So, the new engine is a 1.5 liter, gasoline one which has added a boost of seven horsepower to the previously performance.
Moreover, even the electric version has received some extra horsepower, no less than six.

There will be two versions available for the new 104 Honda CR-Z. The price which has been announced for the basic version is $19,995 while the EX trim is going to cost $21,840. If some of the drivers would like to include the special navigation package, then the price will change up to $23,990.

Compared with the previous model which has been released in 2013, the 2014 one seems slightly unchanged. However, the overall exterior design has received a couple of new features in order to reach a better aerodynamics and, even more important, the hood is now low-slung.

Thus, the changes that have been done last year will surely be kept and featured again in the 2014 model as they have proven to offer a huge contribution to the aerodynamic. Also, the bumper is now totally restyled and the grille seems improved too.

For the Cabin Honda has chosen to include several super contemporary hi tech features so the overall look is smooth and updated, featuring logical and comfortable options and instruments. Also, the useful panel that has been included before and has proven its utility, is now totally restyled and improved with a color theme which offers a three dimensional impression and with a tachometer which is able to change the color taking into account the driving style.
The new seats have a sportier look now and are definitely more comfy as the space for legs has also been seriously improved.

Of course, the new vehicle is going to include all the features that a nowadays vehicle must definitely include: cruise control, rearview camera and climate control.
It seems that the 2014 CR-Z is going to be equipped with the previous model's hybrid powertrain, except for the fact that the new one will be able to deliver 130 horsepower at a 6000tpm of torque. Able to reach 60 mph in just 8.8 seconds, the new CR-Z will give the driver the impression of a much sportier vehicle as the performance has been definitely been increased.

A competitor of Hyundai Veloster, the 2014 Honda CR-Z might actually be a lot more popular as the model released by Hyundai will not be released in the hybrid version.

The 2014 Honda CR-Z will certainly be chosen by younger drivers who are always looking for super sporty vehicles, especially because it is going to be one of the very few hybrids which cost less that $20k.
