The 2012 Honda CR-Z is the only two-seat sports coupe hybrid sold in the U.S., and one of the smallest hybrids you can buy today.
Styled to look a lot like a modern version of Honda's classic 1980s CRX coupe, the Honda CR-Z tries to bridge the gap between green motoring and pure driving fun.
Unfortunately, while the CR-Z tries to offer sportiness and high mileage, it fails to do both. It's unable to match the 53-mpg city rating of the 2012 Toyota Prius C, while the added weight of a complicated hybrid system and modern safety features means it isn't as sporty as its spiritual parent, the Honda CRX.
That said, although the CR-Z shares the same drivetrain and platform as Honda's larger five-door 2012 Insight hatchback, it offers a much more fun driving experience. But because the CR-Z weighs in at around 2,600 pounds and only has a 122-horsepower, 1.5-liter engine to move it along (paired with a 15-kilowatt electric motor), we like to think of it as fun with a small "f".
