TULLAMARINE, AUSTRALIA – April 3, 2013: Honda’s innovative and sporty hybrid, the CR-Z, now has a new look and increased performance.

Honda Australia’s Director, Mr. Stephen Collins said, “With a new look, a host of new features and more power, the CR-Z is a great proposition for our customers.”

Renowned for being engaging and fun to drive, the 2013 CR-Z has received Honda’s new Plus Sport (S+) button which gives the vehicle more engine and electric motor assist power. The Plus Sport function can be used while in ECON, Normal or Sport mode.

The CR-Z’s drivetrain has been enhanced to deliver power of 100kW and torque of 190Nm (manual transmission), while the IMA system now features a lithium ion battery.

The sporty hybrid’s unique styling is further enhanced with the revision of the front bumper and grille design and rear LED lights that have a blue accent. The 2013 CR-Z also receives a redesigned diffuser and 17-inch two-tone alloy wheels as standard.

Inside new LED lights and white interior stitching add to the CR-Z’s sporty feel.

Two new exterior colours have been added to the palette, Northern Lights Violet and Polished Metal to accompany the CR-Z’s other colours of Crystal Black, Milano Red and Premium White.
