Now, Honda is announcing that the CR-Z has been awarded the Car of The Year Japan 2010-2011 title. The vehicle was evaluated by the Japan Car of the Year Executive Committee, with a multitude of aspects being assessed during the process.
“We are very proud that the CR-Z has been selected from the strong contenders of new models as the Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011. This award shows that the public has accepted Honda’s aspiration to supply exceptional environmental performance in a fun-to-drive hybrid car at an affordable price, as well as Honda’s desire to spread the joy of owning and driving a car," said Takanobu Ito, Honda’s President and CEO.
"We also believe that this award for the CR-Z reflects the true value of the combined efforts of our business partners and the many others who supported CR-Z development and production. Going forward, Honda intends to bring more joy to an even larger number of customers,” Ito added.
We were just too curious about the CR-Z capabilities, so we decided to take the hybrid for a test drive. You can read the review by following this link.
