To customize your driving experience, the CR-Z features an innovative 3-Mode drive system (Sport/Normal/Econ). In "Sport" mode, the car's systems are enhanced for performance, meaning the steering is more responsive, and the engine becomes more energetic. In "Econ" mode, the car's systems are optimized for enhanced fuel efficiency. The electric motor assist gives priority to the air-conditioning system, helping reduce its overall load on the engine. "Normal" mode is a great compromise between the two, giving you a balanced level of performance and fuel economy.
The 2011 Honda CR-Z Sport Coupe is designed to break the stigma of the typical Hybrid vehicle. With Sporty looks, Sport Mode handling, and impressive MPG... we believe that Honda has succeeded. It is the first production Hybrid with a 6-speed manual transmission . From the S2000 to the Civic Si, Honda has considerable experience with 6-speed manuals. So it's no surprise that the CR-Z's 6-speed gearbox is as efficient as it is entertaining.. There is also the CVT transmission available.
We have many ways to customize your CR-Z, ask our associates for details. To see the Honda CR-Z Mugen Package click here .

The CR-Z recently was named Japan's Car of the Year, but sales in the home market already have begun to slow, Autocar said.
At the recent SEMA show in Las Vegas, Honda displayed a number of performance-oriented versions of the car, including one fitted with Mugen accessories and two modified by Honda Performance Development.
