    The car has a six speed and that's the only redeeming feature of this car as its much too underpowered and slow to be sporty and on top of that the car is ugly (especially from the profile as it looks out of proportion and bloated). The Honda completely blew it as it needs to be restyled and Honda's outdated poor performing IMA system does nothing to enhance the value of this sad effort by Honda. By all indications the Veloster will be everything that the CR-Z should have been.

    I'll pass. I have owned 4 Hondas over my lifetime. I bet the Hyundai
    Veloster is going to be closer to the CRX than this thing. Goodbye, Honda.

    Totally agree with Honda Fan, this car lacks decent power and has mileage that is worst than some regular four-cylinders. Honda is so clueless these days.

    @George: The CR-X had one airbag, was 800 lbs lighter, and wouldn't pass today's emissions or safety tests by a very long shot. Try driving one today and it'll feel like a go-kart!
    And, frankly, I think it's idiotic for people to bitch about fuel economy in the CR-Z. Anything that's 35 mpg or above is superior to 95% of the cars on the road, and this has gotta be more fun to drive than a Prius. Versus other two-seaters (Miata, Corvette, exotics) it's by far the best gas mileage of all. So what's the PROBLEM?

    This car looks great. I will definitely give a test drive.

    A CRX Si back in the day would get the same mileage as this but was by all accounts more fun. Would love to hear from engineers why they can't make that car today and make it safe.

    CR-Z is a very cool looking car. I am impressed with the amount of room it has.

    I'm a fan of Honda but this vehicle makes me feel very mixed. It seems underpowered to be a sports car and doesn't get amazing gas mileage as a hybrid....so...yea

    Great looking ride. I had one back in 1984. It was the Motor Trend Import car of the year then.

    Wow, that's an enormous front overhang. I can only imagine the curbs, ramps and other items that you would hit with this car. Expect to see a lot of banged up front air dams. An overall cute car but perhaps wedged onto the wrong platform.
