Honda teases updated CR-Z
The video gives us a glimpse of one of the CR-Z’s headlights, as well as a new wheel pattern. However, the biggest surprise is a new button marked “S+” located inside the cabin.
There’s no way to tell what the new button is for, though traditionally a button with an S on it means sports. And we all know the CR-Z is definitely a model that could do with a little sports boost.
Despite its somewhat sporty styling, the CR-Z isn't all that speedy, with its hybrid drivetrain delivering a peak output of just 122 horsepower and accelerating the vehicle from 0-60 mph in around 10 seconds when equipped with a CVT, or a second or two faster with a manual.
There’s been speculation that a more powerful version of the CR-Z’s hybrid drivetrain may be developed, with a little help from Honda’s official tuner, Mugen, though it’s more likely that the new button will simply improve suspension settings and throttle response for a slightly sportier drive.
Stay tuned for an update.
