Expert Quotes:

With all the techno-tidbits available inside (along with standard USB audio and a 12V power source), oddly, our favorite interior feature came in the form of a configurable cargo cover.

…If you need a sunroof, heated seats, or keyless-go, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Not a deprivation chamber, but in these days of full-featured small cars, CRZ isn't that kind.

EXs also get some meaningful interior upgrades, like a novel new vacuum-formed evaporated-tin film that lends a sharp-looking smoked-chrome appearance to the doorpulls and center console area.
Motor Trend

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.

Conclusion

Honda hasn’t missed a beat on entertainment features, though you’ll have to remix the CR-Z’s looks and details on your own.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
