2012 Honda CR-Z of Arlington

The CR-Z is a sport hybrid: a heady mix of green innovation and bold, dynamic styling that transforms the now familiar gas-electric car into a hybrid performance vehicle. The words "sporty" and "aggressive" are usually not associated with the word "hybrid," but Honda and their new 2012 CR-Z beg to differ. The sporty zero-emissions vehicle was just released last year, but it is already clear that the competition can't match the Honda CR-Z's quick steering and energetic acceleration and handling. Starting at just $19,545, the sporty hybrid is an affordable small car that's not only fun to drive, it's also one of the few vehicles in the United States that is rated as an Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle, so you can feel good about speeding around Arlington! Vandergriff Honda is proud to offer the 2012 CR-Z Sports Hybrid Car with a variety of great deals and leasing options available. Visit our Arlington Honda dealership today and find out why so many Honda CR-Z reviews place this performance hybrid above vehicles like the Mazda RX-8, Ford Fiesta, Scion tC and Mini Cooper.

The 2012 CR-Z continues Honda's tradition of producing sporty two-seater cars. And it's not just sporty; it also exceeds hybrid efficiency standards, being named the "Most-Efficient Two Seater" by the EPA. The CR-Z has roots with the Honda CRX and the Honda Del Sol. The combination of the sports car and the gas-electric car, however, did not successfully appear until 2007. The CR-Z was introduced as a concept car at the 2007 Tokyo Motor Show, and did not show up in the United States until 2008 at the North American International Auto Show. In 2010, Honda began production and sales of the CR-Z in North America. The CR-Z featured a 1.5-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with Integrated Motor Assist (IMA). The six-speed manual hybrid delivered a very respectable 122 horsepower, and gave the CR-Z its pep and speed off of the starting line. The new lineup of 2012 CR-Z cars continues an innovative trend by Honda to create economical, environmentally friendly sports hybrid cars.
