2015 Honda CR-Z vs. Its Competition

2015 Honda CR-Z image

The 2015 Honda CR-Z has no real direct competitors, as it's the sole two-seat hybrid hatchback on the market.

Other cars offer more driving fun or higher fuel efficiency, depending on which you prioritize.

The Scion tC coupe is now long in the tooth, but its focus on personalization options, sound systems, and infotainment combine with a sportier character.

Various MINI Coopers, from the standard and new-for-2014 three-door hatchback to the odd-looking Coupe, are all sportier from the get go.

The Fiat 500 Abarth is a blast to drive, and still manages decent fuel economy.

As for fuel efficiency, a whole raft of Toyota Prius models offers more space and much higher gas-mileage ratings.

But the biggest competition may be the remarkably good subcompacts from U.S.

makers: the Chevy Sonic and Ford Fiesta.

They're just as much fun behind the wheel, far more spacious for both people and gear, and cheaper to boot.

And you can up the fun factor with Sonic RS and Fiesta ST models as well.

Quick Specs
If you want small, fun, and fuel-efficient, there are other options to consider, but if you're looking for a two-seat hybrid hatchback coupe, the 2015 Honda CR-Z is really your only choice.
The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is comfortable, stylish, safe, and drives well, and almost completely blots out our memory of a much worse Chevy Aveo from the past.
The 2015 Fiesta lineup is proof that small cars don't have to be feature free, and you can even have a bit of fun while saving fuel.
The shadow cast by the FR-S is a long one, but the 2015 tC manages to have an interesting personality on its own.
The Fiat 500 is one of the most stylish ways to choose a small car today, and the Abarth and Turbo models add more excitement for the driver.
