What I’m about to say is grounded in a profound love of the Honda Motor Company, but I’m struggling to remember a car from the last 10 years that was more disappointing than the Honda CR-Z. Early concepts promised a hybrid hot-hatch that was supposed to pick up where the CR-X of the 1980s left off. What we got was a spindly looking coupe with thoroughly underwhelming performance numbers. If that wasn’t bad enough, it also got worse fuel mileage than the non-hybrid CR-X HF from 1986. About the only thing it had going for it was its six-speed manual. Where was the progress?
