Honda Cr-Z Hybrid

hmm, Thanks for the insight!!, True it will never (nothing really does) match CR-X in performance and handling.

The upshot is that it's the only manual hybrid & one of a handful of cars that come new/recon to the country in manual guise....

i'm rather keen to actually drive a manual CR-Z

Yeap paddle shift is indeed handy at times.

No not paddle shift. Proper five forward manual with a clutch. Hence the only manual hybrid in the world. I do NOT know how they managed that!

The Fit RS Hybrid comes with a 6M/T (now I am curious and need to surf around a bit...just wondering if the CR-Z and the 1.5L Hybrid FIT RS come with the same engine+IMA+transmmision...hunch would be yes ?). But yes...AFAIK Honda is the only manufacturer who pulls off the whole Hybrid manual act.

Honda can pull it off cos the dc motor sits on the engine side right before the gearbox. Not in the gearbox like in the prius. so in perspective the engine and the motor don't give two hoots about what kind of a gearbox is behind them unlike in other hybrid systems where there's a lot of dependency.

Automatics are definitely more common but I wouldn't call manuals rare. Should be around the same price or more cos anyone who owns a manual these days or wants to buy one find them very desirable.

Sorry no idea....drove one over here after driving a 1.3L CVT and well lets say it tempted me...

Honda Japan sells the auto and the manual brand new ones at the same price, however their certified used cars the M/T is slightly higher in price than the auto..
