Honda Cars Philippines ends 2015 by bringing in the updated Honda CR-Z

Honda Cars Philippines is ending 2015 with a different kind of silent night by previewing the updated Honda CR-Z a month ahead before it goes on sale officially in January 20165.

The refreshed CR-Z has a new front bumper with a blade-like front splitter that sweeps up from the center and the bottom of the eight-point polygon grille and then terminates at the front corners to form triangular fog light wells to give the hybrid coupe a wider stance. A similar treatment is given to the rear bumper with the blade-like design ending just above the reflectors. New 17-inch alloy wheels complete the exterior package by giving the car a handsome and aggressive stance.

As the CR-Z matured following its 2010 introduction globally, Honda has fitted it with what it calls an "Exciting Mature Cockpit" to enhance the comfort level of the Japanese carmaker's sporty offering. These include a new push-button start system, a seven-inch touchscreen entertainment system that also functions as a navigation screen and a display for the reverse camera, and an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) that "eliminates the traditional parking brake lever and offers easier push-button operation."

Completing the Honda CR-Z's new package is the Active Noise Control (ANC) and Active Sound Control (ASC) systems which makes use of the stereo speakers by enhancing engine sound depending on the situation.

Continuing to power the CR-Z is the 1.5-liter i-VTECengine that's mated to Honda's lightweight and compact Integrated Motor Assist Hybrid System (IMA). According to Honda, the combined drivetrain allows the CR-Z "to develop power and torque similar to higher displacement engines and gives customers a very unique fun to drive experience."

The new Honda CR-Z is available in five colors, including a new two-tone color option with black painted roof, door mirrors, and tailgate:
    Helios Yellow Pearl (2-Tone)
    Milano Red (2-Tone)
    Premium White Pearl (2-Tone)
    Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic
    Polished Metal Metallic (Per order basis)
The price of the updated Honda CR-Z will be announced soon though all 33 Honda are now accepting pre-orders for it.
