Honda CR-Z - Facelift - 6

Honda CR-Z may have been phased out in Australia but in Indonesia, a facelift version has just been launched. Having been present in the republic since 2012, the hybrid hatchback is said to offer “greater handling and sportier driving feeling”, in addition to upgraded looks.

Like the Japanese version that was unveiled in August last year, the Indonesian CR-Z now comes with restyled front and rear bumpers, along with new full LED headlights, and new 17-inch alloy wheels finished in dual-tone trim. Inside, the CR-Z gains a built-in console box and an armrest, an dumps the conventional handbrake lever for an electronic parking brake. The stitching, door panels and seat inserts are now in orange.

On the equipment front, the CR-Z gets keyless entry, push start button, new hands-free telephone switch on the steering wheel, as well as a seven-inch touch screen. The latter supports HDMI and USB, and mirroring function.

Under the hood, the CR-Z retains the tried-and-true combination of a 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine and Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) that jointly develops 136 PS and 190 Nm of torque, which is sent to the front wheels through a CVT. The drivetrain is complemented by three driving modes: Normal, Sport and ECON.
