What do people think about the styling of the CR-Z's regardless? I quite like them when I see one (rarely!) A bit different.

200bhp+ 1.6 turbo sounds like a plan though! Wonder if they'll implement more than a mild RPM limit in it like days of old still though... :chill:

i like them, i remember seeing one with big stickers over it advertising it, must of been when it first came out. I think Japs know how to do turbo engines best.

I saw a white one with black wheels and tints today. Sexy. I would have one. Think Honda dashes are a bit "out there" though.

thats the mugen version of the crz with a supercharged hybrid, i think the one from autocar says its an all new 1.6 turbo'd petrol engine only no hybrid by the looks of it!

i do want a crz in the future just a normal GT version as you pay no tax lol!! and so no doubt insurance should be dead cheap along with petrol!!

all from a 1.5 engine.

Quote:
"Early fuel consumption tests have also been encouraging," says Colin Whittamore from Mugen Euro. "We've retained the three driving modes from the standard car and economy ranges from 50+mpg in 'eco' mode to mid-30s mpg when tapping into the supercharged power in a special 'Mugen' mode."


I bet that got you thinking Percy! TBH if any performance hatchback or coupé can hit 40mpg plus when required then it's a good thing with how petrol prices are rising!

As for the 1.6 Petrol Turbo model, I've not heard any more solid facts yet on that one.
