New screenshots of the 2010 Honda CR-Z have surfaced, and appear to come fom a video featuring the car. What is revealed about the car? Details and photos inside.
A new set of leaked images showcasing the 2010 Honda CR-Z have hit the web. The images appear to be screenshots from a video, the source of which is unknown.
These screenshots show the vehicle in real-world conditions, using a six-speed manual gearbox, but a CVT will also be offered. Images show the car from head-on, and behind, with a look that will no-doubt bring more customers to the Honda hybrid. Inside, the car looks to have a button to turn off traction control, and we can clearly see the buttons the driver will use to select Sport, Normal, and Econ driving modes.
This is the second leak related to the CR-Z in less than a month. Previously, we brought you a series of images and details taken from a leaked copy of the brochure for the Japanese market launch. The sales packet says the hybrid coupe will have a 1.5-liter 113-horsepower petrol engine producing up to 145 Nm of torque, mated to a 10-kiloWatt, 78 Nm electric motor.
The combination will let the car sprint to 100 km/h in 9.7 seconds, about a half-second faster than the Toyota Prius. Expect the CR-Z to travel 25 kilometers per liter of fuel, or about 58.8mpg. This figure is definitely better than the Prius' 51/48 estimated mpg.
Japan's number two automaker will launch the 2010 Honda CR-Z in February. European, North American, and African markets will get their launch later in the year.
