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.

The 2014 Honda CR-Z has three simple trim levels, with plentiful features even on the base car, which comes in at around $21,000 with delivery. All CR-Z models come with power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; keyless entry; automatic climate control--a rare fitting on smaller two-seaters; and a six-speaker CD audio system rated at 160 watts, including USB connectivity and controls on the steering wheel.

Move up to the middle EX trim level, and you'll get leather trim; high-intensity discharge headlamps; fog lamps; some metal trim accents for the interior; and Bluetooth connectivity (which really ought to be standard these days).

Finally, there's the EX with Navigation model, new last year. In fact, it's not just the navigation system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen display that differentiates this model, but also voice commands, Pandora internet radio, and an SMS messaging facility. It also features an optional and much more powerful 360-watt stereo system with seven speakers, including a subwoofer.

Including a handful of paint colors, that's about the extent of the variations you can have in a CR-Z. It's a low-volume car, so the limited selection keeps the process simple and the number of variations manageable . Note that Honda lets you order the six-speed manual gearbox on all of the three trim levels. The only real drawback is a woeful lack of personalization options for the CR-Z at your local dealer, unlike Scion and MINI, to name two small-car brands that excel at letting buyers customize their new cars. Even for custom wheels, you'll have to go to the aftermarket.

 

Conclusion

Every 2014 Honda CR-Z, even the base trim, is nicely equipped, but options are few and dealer add-ons are lacking too.

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.
