Honda CR-Z Named Japan’s Car Of The Year

The sporty hybrid Honda CR-Z has been the Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011 by the Japan Car of the Year Executive Committee.

The CR-Z is a very important car for the Japanese manufacturer as it satisfies both criterias of being green and sporty.

At least that’s what Honda says it is! There’s no doubt it’s very green, but we’re not sure of its sporty side. You see it only has a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine and Honda’s original Integrated Motor Assist which together provides like 130 hp, which is good for a small hatchback, but  not for a sporty coupe.


Anyhow, congrats on the award Honda!

“We are very proud that the CR-Z has been selected from the strong contenders of new models as the Car of the Year Japan 2010-2011. This award shows that the public has accepted Honda’s aspiration to supply exceptional environmental performance in a fun-to-drive hybrid car at an affordable price, as well as Honda’s desire to spread the joy of owning and driving a car. We also believe that this award for the CR-Z reflects the true value of the combined efforts of our business partners and the many others who supported CR-Z development and production. Going forward, Honda intends to bring more joy to an even larger number of customers.” Remarks from Takanobu Ito, President and CEO, Honda Motor Co., Ltd.
