Combining new, more aggressive styling, upgraded standard and available features and sporty handling, the 2016 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid goes on sale November 3 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP)1 ranging from $20,295 for the CR-Z LX with 6-speed manual transmission (MT) to $25,090 for the new EX-L with standard navigation (CVT). The CR-Z's agility is backed up by its punchy hybrid powerplant that produces up to an impressive 140 lb-ft of torque (MT)2, while offering EPA fuel economy ratings of up to 36/39/37 mpg3 city/highway/combined (CVT).
Boasting an edgier, more chiseled look, the redesigned front end features sharp character lines that flow from the sheet work and terminate in an angular eight-point polygon grill. A sharp, blade-like front diffuser sweeps up from the center and dissects the front corners to form triangular fog light wells that create a wider look and feature prominent lower aero sills. The aggressive stance created by the front end continues along the CR-Z's sides with flared full-length side garnishes that create a planted and sucked-to-the-tarmac look, complemented by new swept five-spoke design alloy wheels. The upward sweeping aero features of the front are mirrored at the rear, pushing the exit pod design elements to the sides for a wider looking stance.
Upgraded interior surface treatments include a new brushed metallic finish to the door handles, front paneling and center console. The leather-wrapped steering wheel and new-for-2016 heated and leather-trimmed seats on the top-of-the-line EX-L Navi trim include an attractive contrasting stitch pattern. Creating an even sportier cockpit feel, a new center console rises between the seats with a comfortable armrest and deep storage compartment. Allowing for this addition is a new standard electric parking brake (EPB) that eliminates the traditional parking brake lever and offers easier push-button operation. Another new standard convenience feature is the Smart Entry and Push Button Start/Stop system that simplifies approaching, entering and operating the CR-Z.
Newly standard on all CR-Z models is the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen. The intuitive and easy-to-use Display Audio lets you swipe, tap and pinch–just like on a tablet computer or smartphone–to control the vehicle's audio system, display settings and other advanced features, including Pandora® compatibility. CR-Z EX and EX-L Navi trims include Honda LaneWatch™, which displays a wide-angle view of the passenger side roadway on the Display Audio screen.

2016 CR-Z Pricing and EPA Fuel Economy Ratings
EPA MPG Rating3 (city/highway/combined)
Powertrain The hybrid powertrain uses a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder, 16-valve, single-overhead cam (SOHC) engine with "intelligent" Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) that receives additional power from the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA®) system's DC brushless electric motor. Powered by a 144-volt Lithium-Ion battery pack, the 15 kW electric motor assists in acceleration and also acts as a generator during braking or coasting to capture kinetic energy to recharge the battery pack. Combined peak output is 130 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 140 lb.-ft. of torque (127 lb.-ft. on CVT-equipped models), including electric-motor assist4.
Selectable Econ, Normal and Sport operating modes let the driver select his or her desired balance of economy and performance. In addition, the standard Plus Sport System delivers increased acceleration when the driver presses the "S+" button on the steering wheel (when the battery is more than 50-percent charged and the CR-Z is traveling over 19 mph). The CR-Z's idle-stop feature temporarily turns off the gasoline engine when the vehicle comes to a stop under certain conditions. In this situation, the hybrid powertrain's ECU monitors the closed throttle, speed and brake pressure to determine the driver is bringing the car to a stop. When the brake pedal is released, the engine is restarted and power is available immediately.
Body Refreshed with exterior design and trim upgrades for 2016, the CR-Z's "one-motion" exterior wedge shape begins at its low-slung hood to form a broad forward stance, with its deeply inset beltline adding a dynamic element. Standard exterior features include power windows and power door locks, remote entry, and an Expanded View Driver's Mirror. The CR-Z EX and EX-L model add LED daytime running lights (DRL), High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights with Auto-On/Off, and fog lights.
Chassis The front MacPherson strut and rear H-shaped torsion beam suspension systems, along with electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering (EPS), are tuned to provide a sporty driving experience. All CR-Z models have 16-inch aluminum wheels and 195/55R16 tires. The CR-Z's low height, compact wheelbase and placement of the battery and other hybrid components beneath the rear cargo area contribute to a low center of gravity and responsive, sporty handling.
To further improve the 2016 CR-Z's handling prowess, the chassis was retuned with several components receiving upgrades: the front stabilizer bar diameter was increased from 19 mm to 20 mm; the rear wheel track was increased by 10 mm; and front and rear brake discs were enlarged to 11.1 inches in diameter (up from 10.3 inch front and 10.2 inch rear).
Interior The CR-Z interior has a high-tech appearance and intuitive controls including the new Display Audio touchscreen. The hybrid sport coupe's ultra-modern instrument panel features gauges that illuminate with a three-dimensional color theme for a multi-layered appearance, with the tachometer backlighting color changing based on driving style. The sweeping upper dashboard shape creates a wraparound cockpit environment. Premium sport-oriented seats provide firm lateral support along with everyday driving comfort and are now offered on the new EX-L trim as heated leather seats with an attractive contrasting stitch pattern to provide a premium sporty interior feel. A console behind the front seats optimizes cargo space, with a hard-shell separator that can be closed to create additional hidden storage.
Standard electronic features include the Display Audio-operated, 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with six speakers and speed-sensitive volume control and a USB5 auxiliary input jack for connection to a portable audio player. Other interior features include Pandora® compatibility, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, automatic climate control and cruise control. The CR-Z EX and EX-L adds a 360-Watt AM/FM/CD Premium Audio System with seven speakers including subwoofer and HD Radio™6. A Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™7 is standard on the CR-Z EX-L. Included with the Navi system are HD traffic and voice recognition, Bluetooth® streaming audio and an SMS text messaging function.
Safety Honda's exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure helps protect occupants in a frontal collision. Additional safety technologies include dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; standard front-side airbags with passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS); side-curtain airbags, active head restraints; an anti-lock braking system (ABS); a tire pressure monitoring system; and design features to the front of the vehicle intended to mitigate potential injuries to a pedestrian in a collision.
All 2015 and newer Honda models, including the 2016 CR-Z, incorporate a multi-angle rearview camera8. Viewable on the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, the camera can show a top view, normal or wide view when the transmission is in Reverse. The camera view features dynamic guidelines that help the driver better judge distances and project the vehicle's future path based on the driver's steering inputs.
Warranty The 2016 Honda CR-Z is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile new-car limited warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, and a 5-year/ unlimited-mile corrosion limited warranty. A 15-year/150,000-mile emissions warranty also applies when the vehicle is registered and normally operated in California and certain states that have adopted California Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations. Genuine Honda Accessories are covered by the vehicle's 3-year, 36,000-mile limited warranty when obtained and installed at the time of original vehicle purchase.

'기술의 혼다'라는 말이 있듯 혼다의 기술 중심 주의는 여느 메이커가 부러워할 만한 요소입니다. 그 중심에 NSX가 있죠. 그리고 유럽 마니아들을 중심으로 핫해치의 교과서라 불리는 시빅 타입-R이 있습니다. 사진은 최신형 모델로 영국 프레스 행사를 통해 공개된 모습입니다. 미국형과는 다른 형태의 카리스마를 뿜고 있네요. 오리지널 앞바퀴굴림의 가능성을 엿볼 수 있는 모델입니다.
l appreciate automatic dual zone climate control air conditioning, and sophistication in the cabin is also boosted by red ambient lighting.
The GT Pack also includes Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist Systems. This comprehensive suite of sensor-based safety technologies includes Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, High-Beam Support System, Blind Spot Information, Cross Traffic Monitor, Traffic Sign Recognition System and Intelligent Speed Limiter.
Forward Collision Warning: At a speed of 9mph or above, this detects the risk of collision by recognising the car or truck directly in front, using the multi-purpose camera. On detecting the risk of collision, it will offer visual and audible warnings. The warning distance can be adjusted and turned off.
Lane Departure Warning: This uses the multi-purpose camera to track lane markings on the road. If the car deviates from its current lane without indicating, it alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings. The system can be turned off by the driver at any time.
High Beam Support System: Working at more than 25 mph to switch High Beam head lights on or off automatically depending on oncoming or preceding vehicles (cars, trucks and motorcycles), bicycles and environmental brightness. The system can be turned off by the driver at any time.
Blind Spot Information: Uses radar to detect cars and trucks in the driver’s blind spot and warn of potential dangers using a visual warning on the door mirror when the vehicle is travelling more than 12 mph. If the driver indicates whilst a vehicle is in the blind spot, the visual warning will blink and an audible warning will sound.
Cross Traffic Monitor: This system uses rear side radar sensors to warn the driver of approaching vehicles when reversing. The approaching vehicle is shown either on the rear-view camera screen or displayed using arrows showing the direction of the travelling vehicle on the i-MID and an audible warning. The system is designed to detect cars and trucks travelling up to 16 mph.
Traffic Sign Recognition system: The multi-purpose camera detects road signs whenever the vehicle is moving forward, displaying the signs via the i-MID once the vehicle has passed the sign. The system is designed to detect circular road signs displaying speed limits and ‘No Passing’ information. Two road signs can be displayed at any one time – the right side of the display only shows speed limit signs while the left shows ‘No Passing’ signs and speed limits with additional information; such as weather conditions, for example.
Intelligent Speed Limiter: Intelligent Speed Limiter combines two otherwise independent safety systems – Adjustable Speed Limiter and Traffic Sign Recognition system – resulting in an advanced safety assistance feature. The Adjustable Speed Limiter system –standard on every Honda car on sale in Europe – regulates the maximum speed of the vehicle at a level set by the driver.
With Intelligent Speed Limiter activated, the maximum speed of the vehicle is automatically determined by the prevailing legal speed limit detected by the Traffic Sign Recognition system. When the vehicle passes a sign indicating a lower speed limit, the vehicle will gently and automatically slow. An alert sounds and the displayed speed limit blinks if the vehicle speed exceeds the limit by 2 mph or more. The vehicle’s maximum speed – regardless of the accelerator input by the driver – will not exceed this limit. When the vehicle passes a sign indicating a higher speed limit, it will allow the driver to accelerate until the vehicle reaches the new maximum permitted speed, at which point it will prevent the vehicle from exceeding the new speed limit. The system can be turned off by the driver at any time.
Accessory pack options
The new Civic Type R has a wider variety of accessory packs and single options than ever before on a Type R, allowing the car to be personalised to suit individuals‘ own preferences.
Red Exterior Pack : This further underlines the car’s sporting nature. It offers a combination of accessories that gives the car an exciting, sporty look using Rally Red accents, including a front grille garnish, door mirror covers, a rear diffuser decoration and a roof spoiler.

Single option accessories
A range of single options, such as Honda 3D Sound, as well as individual elements from the option packs are also available. Honda 3D Sound is able to faithfully reproduce music by adding a compact DSP (digital signal processing) unit to the standard Honda sound system in the car, enhancing the listening experience to give a live concert hall feeling.
Drivers can also select individual elements from option packs. For example, hand-made carbon fibre can be applied to the fog light surrounds, while carbon fibre tailgate garnish or carbon fibre tailgate wing (available with gloss black or Rally Red end plates) can be added.
A roof spoiler, in Rally Red or body colour, is available to provide an additional aesthetic touch. Similarly, the front grille garnish is available in a Rally Red and chrome finsh. Rally Red rear diffuser decoration, exchangable Rally Red covers for the side door mirrors or a fuel cap in a gloss black can all be individually specified.
Inside, the red ambient front footwell lighting gives the interior a sporty but sophisticated feel. The footwell lighting is triggered by turning on the headlights and by opening the door.‘Elegance‘ black floor carpets bring even more of Type R to the front footwell, featuring red linings and a metal Type R badge.
The car’s interior can be personalised further by applying a carbon fibre glove box or centre console finish, while the air outlets can be emphasised with a carbon fibre, Rally Red or gloss black surround. The steering wheel can be enhanced with Rally Red or gloss black detailing.
The full range of accessories will be available in July on the Honda Genuine Accessories app, available on the App Store and Google Play.
7.Tested to success, Civic Type R represents the next generation of hot hatch with class-leading performance
Prototype Civic Type R recorded a time unmatched by any other front-wheel drive performance hatchback around the Nürburgring
As part of a rigorous and detailed development and testing programme, a pre-production development Civic Type R achieved a 7 minutes 50.63 seconds lap time of the legendary 20.8 km/12.9 mile Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany. This time is unmatched by any other front-wheel drive performance hatchback.
The lap time was achieved during the final phase of pre-production testing in May 2014 by a Civic Type R development car. The development car was in a standard state of engine tune, with suspension, drivetrain, exhaust, brakes and the aerodynamic package identical to those of the production Civic Type R.
The removal of equipment such as air conditioning, the front passenger seat and audio equipment offset the additional weight of a full roll cage (installed specifically for safety reasons and not to add rigidity).
During the test cycle, the development car used production-specification high-rigidity 19-inch alloy wheels. These were fitted with 235/35R19 road tyres being developed in conjunction with Continental especially for the new Civic Type R. The test cycle during which the 7 minutes 50.63 seconds lap time was achieved was part of the tyre’s development and testing process.

2014 파리 모터쇼에 등장한 새로운 2015 혼다 시빅 타입 R 컨셉입니다. 올 초 공개했던 것과 별반 다르지 않고 내년에 나올 양산형과도 큰 차이가 없다고 합니다. 앞바퀴굴림 핫해치의 교과서로 불릴 정도로 큰 인기를 끌고 있는 모델인만큼 팬들의 관심도 대단합니다. 개인적으론 안드로메다급 윙과 LED 치장만 빼면 디자인적으로 맘에 드네요. 게다가 2.0리터 터보 유닛은 최고출력 280마력에 이릅니다. 듀얼 클러치가 대세를 이루고 있는 가운데 고집스럽게 수동변속기만 나오는 점도 끌리고요. 매니아틱한 모델이라면 이러한 고집 아니 뚝심 정도는 있어야 합니다.
With the automotive world about to descend on the Paris Motor Show 2014, Honda has released further details of the eagerly anticipated new Civic Type R.
The all-new hot hatch – due in UK showrooms next year – will be the most extreme and high-performing Type R in the 22 year history of the red ‘H’ badge, signalling the start of a new performance era for the brand.
Power will come from a 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine from Honda’s next-generation Earth Dreams Technology series. Producing more than 280 PS, it will deliver unmatched performance against any previous Type R, including all generations of the Civic, the iconic performance-oriented versions of the Integra, Accord and even the NSX.
While complying with strict Euro 6 emissions regulations, this is a Honda Type R powerplant like no other. With its predecessors naturally aspirated, the new unit benefits from a turbocharger, boosting low-end power delivery. Combined with the high-end performance synonymous with Honda’s VTEC technology – and much-loved by fanatical Type R owners – the new model promises to deliver a sensational driving experience.
Suehiro Hasshi, Large Project Leader for the Civic Type R at Honda R&D, comments: “Honda has had four Type R model derivatives – the Civic, Integra, Accord and NSX. The engine in this new Honda Civic Type R is unrivalled against all of them in terms of raw power, torque and engine response.”
Hasshi-san emphasised the car’s appeal will be far greater than just the new high-performance engine under the bonnet. A number of engineering innovations and enhancements will make the new Type R a true driver’s car, more than worthy of wearing the famous red ‘H’ badge.
The new Type R will mark the debut of the new ‘+R’ button, for example. Located to the side of the steering wheel, a press activates ‘+R‘ mode for the most exhilarating driving experience. Engine responsiveness is heightened, with torque-mapping changed to a more aggressive and performance-focused setting. Steering becomes more responsive which, together with the new four-point Adaptive Damper System, delivers the ultimate handling experience.
Hasshi explained: “In default standard mode, the Civic Type R is exceptionally agile, an everyday sports car with an enjoyable and fluid acceleration. The ‘+R’ button brings out a more dynamic and athletic car for the driver, sure to set pulses racing. The difference in character is immense. The ‘+R’ mode is extreme; the car is ideal for the track and will be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast.”
Another example of Honda’s innovative approach is the car’s ‘steer axis’. In order to deliver the power of the turbocharged 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine, the new Type R’s front suspension system includes this additional mechanical system involving two supporting ‘kingpins’. These work to minimise torque steer, allowing the driver to fully exploit the Type R‘s exceptional driveability.
Furthermore, a new four-point Adaptive Damper System has been developed specifically for the new Type R, which automatically adjusts front and rear suspension damping force stiffness in a split second, to suit driving conditions. This allows the new Type R to provide a comfortable ride during cruising, yet become firm and agile for high-performance handling.
The new Type R will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors with a six-speed manual transmission, which the development team selected in order to maximise driving enjoyment.
Hasshi explains: “The manual transmission allows the driver to select their chosen gear, for example, down from fifth to third when approaching a corner. The concept of the new Civic Type R is to be the complete driver’s car so this was the best option.”
The all-new Civic Type R has been developed and engineeredfor European drivers. The car will be built at Honda’s state-of-the-art plant in Swindon, UK, arriving in dealerships during 2015.
