Following yesterday's initial leak, new images of the Honda CR-Z MUGEN have emerged.
While our Japanese is a little rusty, the car features new front and rear bumpers, a revised grille, extended side skirts, a dual exhaust, a rear spoiler, and a rear diffuser. Like other MUGEN products, the CR-Z will likely offer a sports suspension and a high-performance braking system.
As we previously reported, the CR-Z will be powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a small electric motor. The petrol engine produces 84 kW (114 hp) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque, while the electric motor churns out 10 kW (14 hp) and 78 Nm (58 lb-ft) of torque. Packing a combined 94 kW (128 hp) and 223 Nm (165 lb-ft) of torque, the CR-Z will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds. More importantly, the car is expected to average between 22.5 km/l (52.9 mpg US or 4.5 l/100km) and 25.0 km/l (58.8 mpg US or 4.0 l/100km).
Look for more information to be released when the CR-Z is launched early next year.
