Honda CR-Z at RM115k !

The long-awaited Honda CR-Z is finally here in Malaysia! Priced at RM115k OTR with insurance, the CR-Z is first of its kind (3-door hybrid) in Malaysia where you can get fuel economy and performance at the same time!

No doubt that the Honda CR-Z is a looker. Sleek styling together with its 3-door design make people forget that it's actually a hybrid when they see it. Thankfully, Malaysia version get daytime running LED lights as standard, which will increase its road presence greatly.

We get the 1.5litre i-VTEC powerplant for the CR-Z. It is able to churn out 124bhp, also similar to a Honda City, and 174Nm at as low as 1000-1500rpm. The CR-Z also comes with a 3-Mode drive system, where drivers can choose between Sport, Normal or ECON mode depending on their needs.

The CR-Z also get a futuristic cabin theme like its siblings, Civic and Insight. Very nice looking cabin it is, but isn't the centre console looks slightly cluttered? Besides the great preformance, the safety equipment list is impressive too. Besides the usual Dual SRS airbags, the CR-Z has side and curtain airbags, Hill Start Assist (even for a manual transmission!) and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) as standard!

Best of all, owners of the CR-Z can enjoy a 5 years/140,000km warranty for the hybrid battery. This is a good move in order to push the sales of hybrid cars and also to instill confidence in its customers.
