For The Honda CR-Z looks great inside and out, plus it’s fun to drive and every version comes well equipped. The hybrid system works smoothly and keeps running costs low.
Against There’s lots of road noise at speed and the ride is firm. The rear seats are very cramped and fuel economy isn’t as good as it is in some diesel rivals.

The Honda CR-Z is far from perfect, but it offers a desirable blend of futuristic styling, low running costs and driving fun.

Target Price team says:
The CR-Z is the fun member of Honda’s hybrid family. Where the Insight is practical and sensible, the CR-Z is the opposite. It’s still green, but it’s a whole lot more exciting, from the edgy exterior, through to the futuristic cabin and its lively performance and handling. Although it’s not quite as clean as Honda’s other hybrid, running costs will still be low.
We reckon the Sport model is the pick of the range because it’s significantly cheaper than the GT, but still comes with rear parking sensors, climate control, a USB port and a leather-trimmed multi-function steering wheel.
GT trim is lavishly equipped, with the likes of leather upholstery, a panoramic glass roof, xenon headlights and heated front seats.
