Hint: Not much.
With Honda’s recent unveiling of the new 2016 CR-Z in Japan, a good deal of perspective car buyers became excited about the affordable and (somewhat) sporty hybrid. Now, just a few days later, Honda has revealed what pricing will be in the United States for the base model. For next year, the no-extras CR-Z will cost you $21,130. Unfortunately, that’s more expensive than the previous year’s model, but it comes with some new tech here and there.
For the price increase, you can expect to see a whopping 0 hp increase in the compact car’s power plant. Although stabilizer bars have been thickened slightly to increase handling, the US-spec version of this car will also be lacking some good headlight and front fascia updates that will only be available on JDM cars. Is this new four-banger worth anything north of $20,000, even new?
