Honda Teases new CR-Z
The car they created weights about 1.2 tons and is powered by a 1.5-liter engine coupled to an electric motor, offering a combined peak output of 124 hp and 128 lb-ft (175 Nm).
Now it seems there’s change coming our way, as Honda’s Japanese website is teasing a facelifted version of the car which will be shown on September 27th. This is the same date that the Paris Motor Show kicks off for the press, so it will most likely be shown there.
Three details are revealed about the new CR-Z. First off, there’s a new headlight, framed at the bottom by LEDs. Next, Honda shows a fresh design for the wheels, an evolution of the five-double-spoke design with black accents.
Lastly, there’s a S+ button. Right now, the CR-Z has three driving modes: Econ, Normal and Sport. Hopefully, this will be matched by a power bump.
autoevolution will be attending the Paris Motor Show 2012, so stay tuned for some real up close and personal shots of the vehicles, as well as for first-hand details of the motorized contraptions presented at the event.
