Model Highlights

The 2014 CR-Z features a sporty look as well as a high-tech powertrain, both of which are sure to please enthusiasts and eco-minded drivers alike.

The front-wheel-drive, 2-seat hatchback features aggressive exterior styling that makes it look fast, even at a stand-still.

The engine is the heart of the CR-Z, and power comes from a 130-hp, 1.5L inline-4 cylinder. The unit boasts 16 valves and Honda's proven i-VTEC variable timing. Mated to the gas engine through Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) is an electric motor that develops an additional 13 hp. A lithium-ion battery pack mounted low in the car provides an optimal center of gravity and provides the electric motor with enough fuel to make great low-end torque for spirited acceleration.

The CR-Z comes with either a 6-speed manual transmission--the first hybrid vehicle to do so --or with a constantly variable transmission (CVT).

The CR-Z allows drivers to choose one of three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Econ. The different settings change the car's engine mapping and throttle response. Sport maximizes engine performance while Econ maximizes efficiency. Like the Insight, the CR-Z display provides an Eco Guide and Eco Score for each drive, which can help "teach" the driver to achieve the best possible fuel economy.

The CR-Z is an agile, stable handler with superior ride quality, thanks not only to its low center of gravity, but also because of its wide stance, low height and its specially tuned independent front and torsion-beam rear suspension.

Two CR-Z trims are offered, and amenities set them apart. The base trim includes LED brake lights, tinted glass and power mirrors, windows and locks. Inside there's an ergonomic and highly functional interior like no other, with automatic climate control, cruise control, tilt/telescopic steering wheel, a 12V outlet, silver mesh sport seats and a 160-watt CD stereo with MP3 capability, a USB interface, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, a rearview camera and speed-sensitive volume control.

The CR-Z EX adds LED daytime running lights, HID headlights, fog lights, heated side mirrors, a leather-clad steering wheel and shift knob and polished metal accents with aluminum pedals. The EX also comes with ambient lighting and a 360-watt, 7-speaker premium stereo.

Navigation is optional on the EX and comes with voice recognition, text messaging functionality, steering wheel-mounted audio, cruise and navigation controls, and Pandora Internet radio compatibility.

Advanced safety features are a given in the CR-Z -- front and side airbags are standard, as are active head restraints, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution and brake assist, stability and traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system.

For 2014, the CR-Z arrives with no big changes.

Value Writeup

The CR-Z is based on the Insight platform, and Honda bills it as the "world's first sport hybrid." Styling is reminiscent of the much-loved CRX of the 1990s, but updated to Honda's current design language and beyond, with an aggressive nose and sweeping angles. Power comes from a 130-hp, 1.5L engine and Integrated Motor Assist (IMA), a DC brushless motor that adds another 13 hp.

Potential Number of Units Affected

Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
