Honda CR-Z axed in Australia

The Honda CR-Z has been discontinued from the Australian market, following a similar announcement made a year ago for Europe. The model has been terminated due to poor demand but if you are fast enough you might be able to grab one of the cars left in stock but there aren’t that many available so you will need to act fast. The model is still being sold in United States where it carries a starting price of $20,935 for the 2015 model year.

We remind you the Honda CR-Z teams up an i-VTEC 1.5-liter four-cylinder naturally aspirated gasoline engine with a six-speed manual transmission (optional CVT) and an electric motor. This hardware arrangement grants the vehicle with a combined output of 130 bhp and 140 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the manual, the car will return 31 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway and 34 mpg in the combined cycle while with the CVT it will do 36 / 39 / 37.

For an extra $5,495, the Honda CR-Z (US-spec) can get an optional supercharger kit bumping power by 67 bhp to a total of 197 bhp. For more money clients can add more upgrades such as a sport clutch and a limited slip differential.
