Honda CR-Z Breaks the Hybrid Mold

At first glance you may not realize it, but the 2012 Honda CR-Z, is a hybrid model. Think it looks a little too sporty to fit the build? That's because it's what Honda refers to as a sport hybrid coupe. And they're not just describing it that way because of its edgy and daring looks. Honda has packed quite a bit under the hood of this fierce two-seater.

The best part of the 2012 Honda CR-Z? Honda takes full advantage of both ends of the performance/efficiency spectrum. They do this by offering the 2012 Honda CR-Z with a dial that allows the driver to select one of three operating modes: Sport, Normal, or Econ. As their names suggest, each one allows for a different level of performance or efficiency. That way, you're never stuck driving a car that doesn't match your mood.
