All new for 2011, the Honda CR-Z is a hybrid vehicle that the automaker claims will provide much more driving pizzazz than most hybrids. The CR-Z is a hatchback, with 3 doors and 2 seats.

The 2011 Honda CR-Z is available in base or EX trim. The base trim features 16-inch wheels, some standard power features, automatic headlights, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a 6-speaker sound system. The EX trim upgrades the stereo system and adds Xenon headlights, fog lights, leather-wrapped steering wheel, stylish interior touches, and Bluetooth connectivity. Options include dealer-installed upgrades to the wheels and tires. A voice-activated navigation system is also available with the EX trim. Approximately 25 cubic feet of cargo space is available behind the seats, according to Honda.

The 2011 Honda CR-Z's power plant consists of a 112-horsepower, 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, supplemented by an electric motor that boosts output to 122 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, and comes with hill-start assist. Optional is a continuously variable transmission (CVT, which functions as an automatic) with manual shifters. A 3-mode drive selector allows for driver preferences and driving circumstances. Estimated fuel efficiency is 31 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with manual transmission, and 35/39 with the CVT, according to the EPA.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Honda CR-Z include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control, front side air bags, side curtain air bags, and active head restraints. In government crash tests, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the CR-Z 3 (out of 5) stars for driver protection in front-impact tests, and 2 stars for front-passenger protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the CR-Z highest-possible \"Good\" ratings in all of its crash tests.

The 2011 Honda CR-Z had a starting MSRP of $19,345.
