The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda CR-Z is your best choice if you're looking for a two-seat hybrid sport coupe, but it doesn't excel in either handling or fuel economy. The 2013 Chevrolet Sonic swaps econobox blues for sporty driving feel as well as safety, refinement, and comfort.
