In 2010 Honda introduced a new Hybrid to their model line up, it is a compact hybrid electric coupe, the CR-Z, and many see it as the successor to the Honda CR-X. The CR-Z proved that Hybrid cars can be sporty, great looking while remaining economical. The CR-Z produces 122 bhp and can do 56.5 miles to the gallon on a combined cycle.
In Top Gear magazine’s annual awards the CR-Z has been awarded the “Green Car of the Year 2010” award, this is a great achievement for Honda as the award is much coveted in the industry. The Top gear award means the CR-Z has won four wards in four weeks!
Top Gear said, “Of all the cars we’ve brought to China, CR-Z is far and away the one I feel most at home with – and most excited about. Compact, accessible and responsive, it’s a breeze to drive in this hectic and distracting place.”
The other awards for the CR-Z are; What Car? Green Awards’ Best Sports Car trophy as well as the more recent Japan Car of the Year 2010-2011 and Stuff magazine’s Eco Gadget of the Year title, plus Most Economic & Environment Friendly Sports HEV at the first RAC Brighton to London Future Car Challenge.
The Managing Director of Honda UK was very pleased with the award and said, “To be recognised by a publication as well respected as Top Gear is a great achievement for the CR-Z and for Honda. We’re so pleased with the reception the CR-Z has received from the press, especially when you consider the strength of the competition out there. The car has only been on sale for nine months but we’re already looking for a bigger trophy cabinet!”
