It’s been exactly three years since Honda revised the CR-Z, and the Japanese brand has revealed a new update for its two-door hybrid. The facelift comes only a few months after Honda upgraded the Japan-spec model, and it will hit North American dealerships for the 2016 model year. The update features subtle cosmetic revisions and a new trim level.

Launched in 2010 after Honda had paraded two hot concept cars, the CR-Z was nowhere near the hybrid, hot-hatch that was supposed to pick up where the CR-X of the 1980s left off. Its design was far from impressive, performance was disappointing, while fuel economy wasn’t that great for a hybrid. Despite that, the CR-Z ranked the fourth best-selling hybrid in the U.S. in 2011, outselling the Toyota Prius.

Honda fixed some of the CR-Z shortcomings in late 2012 by giving it a more aggressive stance and a slightly more powerful drivetrain, but the hatch was still in dire need of a makeover. Rumors claim that the next CR-Z could get styling cues based on the Acura NSX and the same engine as the Civic Type R, but until that happens, we’re stuck with the current model for about two more years.
