The intersection of sport and hybrid can be found under the hood of the CR-Z.
The CR-Z is powered by a 16-valve, 1.5-liter i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine with
Integrated Motor Assist IMA®. This combination delivers both spirited performance
rarely seen in the hybrid world with impressive fuel economy.
The battery pack, positioned low in CR-Z's body structure for optimal center of gravity,
supplies juice to the Integrated Motor Assist system, giving the CR-Z abundant

The CR-Z was designed for excellent fuel economy, but not at the expense of driving fun.
With a combined EPA-estimated 37 mpg* (CVT), the AT-PZEV-rated CR-Z ranks as one

EPA numbers are important, but the way you drive also affects the fuel economy you achieve.
The CR-Z features a guidance system that helps boost your efficiency and monitor your own
driving habits to maximize your mpg. It's called Eco Assist™ and it includes a green
ECON button that, when pressed, regulates certain vehicle functions to maximize efficiency.
The system also features real-time feedback to help promote driver awareness of efficient
driving habits on a daily and ongoing basis.
Standard front, front side and side curtain airbags help reduce the likelihood of
injuries in a collision. Driver's and passenger's active head restraints help reduce
the likelihood of whiplash injuries in a sufficient rear impact.
