That ’other’ car show - yep, we’re talking about Fifth Gear - has finally returned to our late night viewing and one of the first things they did was bring us up to speed with Honda’s new hybrid offering, the 2010 CR-Z.
In this video, Fifth Gear brings the viewers - that’s us - up-to-speed with the interesting capabilities of the CR-Z. Comparing it to the Volkswagen Scirocco TDI, Fifth Gear wasn’t a little too happy with the technical specs of the Honda hybrid, saying that it didn’t have the natural spunk and sporting moxy that’s typically associated with Hondas.
While the car does have quite a bit of performance to it, Fifth Gear noticed that Honda decided to highlight the CR-Z’s efficiency more so than its powertrain performance. As such, if you’re looking for a car that can let your inhibitions take off, the CR-Z isn’t the car for you, but if you’re looking for a ride that’s got ’efficiency’ draped all over it, then the CR-Z should definitely be your ride-of-choice.
