The 2012 Honda CR-Z has a zippy 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder gasoline engine with a Sixth-generation Honda Integrated Motor Assist (IMA). The CR-Z comes in a six-speed manual transmission, which is the only hybrid to offer a manual, or a continuously variable transmission. In conjunction with the 100.8-volt nickel-metal hydride battery pack, the engine pumps out 122 horsepower and 128 lb.-ft. of torque. The fuel economy for this sport hybrid is set at 31 mpg city/37 mpg highway* (manual) to 35 mpg city/39 mpg highway* (CVT).

The best part of the 2012 Honda CR-Z? Honda takes full advantage of both ends of the performance/efficiency spectrum. They do this by offering the 2012 Honda CR-Z with a dial that allows the driver to select one of three operating modes: Sport, Normal, or Econ. As their names suggest, each one allows for a different level of performance or efficiency. That way, you’re never stuck driving a car that doesn’t match your mood.
