Honda is a pioneer in simplifying the order process. The CR-Z comes in just two versions, the sub-$20,000 base CR-Z and the EX, which can cost as much as $24,000.
The base comes with a fair host of standard equipment, including automatic climate control; power windows, locks, and mirrors; keyless entry with one remote; cruise control; and a six-speaker CD sound system with USB connectivity and steering-wheel audio controls.
The CR-Z EX adds high-intensity discharge headlamps; Bluetooth; fog lamps; leather and alloy-metal trim; an extra remote fob; and a upgraded 360-watt stereo. Navigation with voice recognition can be had as an upgrade on this version.
The CR-Z offers few options, and it’s entirely missing the personalization options you’d find at a Scion or MINI or even a Ford showroom. We’re sure the aftermarket gang will have its way with the CR-Z once they reconcile themselves to the idea of hybrid tuning, but Honda’s behind the curve when it comes to high-margin add-ons.
