What alternatives should I consider to a used Honda CR-Z coupe?

The CR-Z is a tricky one to button down for rivals because being both an economical hybrid and a sports car at the same time, it occupies its own niche. There wasn’t anything like it when it was new, and due to the fact that Honda hasn't replaced it, there isn’t anything currently on sale that matches it either.

For those looking for something of an all-rounder, then we'd suggest that the Audi TT provides much of what the CR-Z offers while having a bigger boot and greater long-distance comfort. It won’t be as economical or as cheap to run or buy, though.

Ford’s Fiesta ST is both small and fun. Great fun, actually: it is one of our favourite hot hatches. It doesn’t look as distinctive as the CR-Z, mind you, especially as it’s based on the ubiquitous Fiesta.
