On sale now at Gateway Honda dealers, the 2014 CR-Z is a fusion of sports car and hybrid.
PRLog - Oct. 30, 2013 - ST. LOUIS -- The sales teams at Gateway Honda dealers get talking whenever anyone even hints at the idea of a new Honda vehicle, so it should come as little surprise that news of the 2014 CR-Z spread like wildfire among the St. Louis Honda dealers.
Of course, one thing at the top of the list for many drivers when they think of the CR-Z: fuel economy. This is a hybrid, after all. And the 2014 model does not look like it will disappoint, with an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of as much as 39 mpg.
After the fuel economy, though, the “sports car” aspect shines through and thoughts of power and handling come up:
• Drivers can choose between a sporty manual transmission to match their hybrid powertrain or a new, high-tech and engaging continuously variable transmission.
• And the hybrid powertrain? It's good for a 130-hp combined rating.
The CR-Z is a smart car, too, letting drivers choose whether they want to maximize the hybrid nature or go full-blown sports car with the choice of three driving modes: Econ, Normal, and Sport. Normal, of course, walks the line between sports car and environmentally-friendly Honda.
Not only is is efficient and powerful, but the CR-Z is beautifully sculpted to maximize aerodynamics and take advantage of the vehicle's trademark “one-motion” wedge design.
The interior is high-tech and carries a set of intuitive controls with an ultra-modern panel of instruments and gauges with a three-dimensional color design to give a many-layered appearance.
In addition to the new CR-Z, Gateway Honda dealers carry the full 2013 and 2014 lineup as they become available, including the Accord, Civic, Odyssey, and more.
