The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
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 Beetle Turbo and TDI rightfully stir some excitement, especially with new convertible variants offered, but the base model's still a bit boring.
