Honda CR-Z hybrid

For all Honda's success in recent years, enthusiasts complain that the company has lost interest in sportier models. The CR-Z, a sporty hybrid, should help assuage such concerns. The model at the Tokyo show is very close to the production version that will go on sale next year. Sportier than Honda's current hybrids, the CR-Z has a 1.5-liter engine and a six-speed manual transmission.
