2016 Honda CR-Z powertrain
Although 2016 Honda CR-Z will use the same engine as previous model, it will have significantly more power. For this outgoing version the whole system, which is composed of 1.5 liter petrol engine and electric motor, makes unostentatious 130 horsepower and 140 lb-ft. For 2016 CR-Z, this engine will output amazing 221 horses and 245 lb-ft. You must admit, this is dramatic and very impressive change which indicates that new model will be specially designed for North American market.
Transmission will be also changed. Current manual CVT and manual will be replaced with a new 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. But that is not all of improvements. Although 2016 Honda CR-Z will be much more powerful than outgoing model, it will also have great results in fuel economy. Well, it may not have 37 mpg as current model, but it will still be a very economic car with just slightly weaker results than its predecessor. To be honest, it will be very irrational to expect some fuel economy improvement with this dramatic increase of power.
