Default Drivetrain options. Vote here!

OK, I know that the CR-Z is meant to be the first real sporty hybrid with good fuel economy. Some may be happy with the drivetrain that is rumoured to be in the CR-Z, but I know that there are drivers who would like to see a bit more zip. What would be the drivetrain options that you want Honda to offer?

Lets see the Euro Type-R has the same engine as the US Si, it only looks hotter.

So I'd be happy and thrilled to bits with the K20ZA engine inside and this badge on the hood

I have driven the Insight, and to say I was disappointed is being nice. My fear is Honda, who has a solid track record as of late when it comes to f'ing up, will go way to green and hybrid and we will end up with a hot looking car that can't even get out of the way of an oncoming bicycle. And if you don't know what I mean, go drive an Insight, it has got the be the most pathetic gutless thing I have ever driven. Guys, my Mom's old Chevette had more get up and go...

Because of that statement I would be happy with just getting the 2.0L SI gas engine for the VTEC joy, but of course I would flip with joy to have the full monty, the 2.0L TYPE R!!!

Come on Honda, step up, let your Facebook disgrace with the Crosstour teach you a lesson, listen to the people, give us what we want, power and suspension. Remember back to your CRX roots, we had an CRX-EF, a CRX, and a CRX-Si. Just do it!



I'll never get rid of my '90 Rex!!!

I am thinking that even with the 1.5l the CRZ will drive nothing like the Insight. The Insight was built to make the cheapest hybrid 4 door they could with the best fuel milage they could squeeze out of it. Now the CRZ is not going to be a cheap car, right now the rumor is mid 20's for it and a fully loaded version at just under 30k. For that price I am hoping that it is tuned to give the best performance it can and uses the IMA as a boost system for performance. The rumered 0-60 is under 9 seconds and that is quite a bit better then the Insight.

I wish they had gone with at least the 1.8l engine but I will wait until I get to drive one and see how it does before I throw Honda under the bus on the performace side. Let's be honest if 3 years ago someone had shown you this car, told you it was a hybird and Honda was going to build it would you have belived it? I give Honda props for being willing to make the car in the first place. Now just give me a street date for the USA (I am hoping the same date as Canada).

I voted for the 1.8liter as well. I dont see it starting that high Hargert. I'm guessing 22k to start max. :P It will definitely do 60mph in less than 9 seconds. I hope Honda releases the specs on Oct 21st. The Accord Hybrid was very quick!

For North America the CRZ will reportedly have the 1.8L engine because of our higher horse power requirements. From there its only a small step up to the K20ZA 2.0 Ltr in the Si

Linkie please?!?!?! So maybe the released specs at Tokyo wont be for the U.S.?? With the 1.5, we're looking at at least 140hp. I'm praying for around 180hp. The electric motor should propel it quite nicely.
