The CR-Z isn’t especially cheap, but it retains a decent amount of its value over three years. The hybrid powertrain gives the Sport model average economy of 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 116g/km, while the bigger-wheeled GT manages 54.3mpg and 122g/km of CO2. These low CO2 emissions are good news for company car drivers.
Honda CR-Z Coupe quality & reliability
Honda tends to perform strongly in our reliability and customer satisfaction surveys, and the CR-Z feels like a thoroughly well-engineered car. The interior is solid, and while most of the plastics are hard to the touch, they look quite smart and appealing.
Honda CR-Z Coupe safety & security
Every CR-Z comes with front, side and curtain airbags, as well as active front head restraints that are designed to minimise whiplash injuries. Thanks in part to them, the car achieved a maximum five-star rating in Euro NCAP tests, and there is also a full array of electronic driver aids – including stability control – to lessen the chance of an impact in the first place. Deadlocks and an alarm make life difficult for thieves.
