Yep, this is the right way to build a car. Hybrid, so fuel efficient, sporty so powerful enough for both the city and country roads, and coupe for every young soul out there. That's why I call a job well done.
I'm not really sure what's the reason, but it seems like these Japanese guys actually know what the world needs. They must have a mind reading gadget or something, after all Japan is the land where all ideas take shape.
If you're asking me, hybrids and electric cars are the only way to get out of this annoying recession without asking for government help. Excuse me Sir May B. Bach but I think you're wrong. I think you're wrong because carmakers like Honda are doing the right thing, the world is running out of resources and we can't simply continue like that. Are you actually telling me that you're so ignorant to put your feelings and pleasure for speed above the world's needs?
The CR-Z is more than decent from every point of view. Yes, it's a shame that it's not a four seater, but how many young drivers actually have a kid? Or how many use the rear seats? I'm telling you, only a few. Because you'll never buy a CR-Z if you're thinking to use it as an all-rounder.
The interior is pretty stylish and it's not a bad thing that it can be considered futuristic. In the end, hybrids are some pretty nice futuristic pieces of technology, so I don't see any problem with that.
So, it's brilliant, but would I buy one? Well, I don't really think so. I mean, I really appreciate that it's a hybrid and it's all about protecting the environment, but I can't imagine myself driving one. There are too many buttons on the dashboard, ECON, Sport, Normal, audio, cruise control, Bluetooth, oh my God! Way too many, I'd prefer a simpler design, with modern lines but still paying attention to details.
If I were an interior designer, I'd make the whole car out of pink plush with no leather and a lot of recyclable materials. I don't know why, but I'm becoming a real nature lover, don't you think?
