3.8 out of 5 (4 reviews)

Very nice commuter!

Teaches good technique in getting great gas mileage. Sport mode when you want to have fun and always makes you happy when filling up.


  • Fuel Economy: 40+ mpg when driven correctly!
  • Styling: No other style in a hybrid
  • Value: Save tons of money at the pump

Fun car, great value

The Honda CR-Z is a terrific city car. It gets terrific gas mileage, is fun to drive, and is very easy to park.


  • Fuel Economy: 36-39 MPG city and highway
  • Value: Very affordable for such a sporty car
  • Styling: The sporty style of the car makes me happy to drive it, and people constantly stop me and ask about it.


  • Visibility: The one con is a notorious blind spot. It is highly advisable to glance quickly over the shoulder before changing lanes.
  • Technology and Entertainment: The stereo system is quite good but is missing audio via bluetooth technology.

Cool car, executed poorly

This car is excellent, however the inconveniences of the vehicle bring down its rating. There are plenty of good cars at this price range, however I would recommend the Chevy Sonic RS. With relatively similar economy and power the Sonics cargo space and 5 seats make it the clear choice.


  • Fuel Economy: Excellent fuel economy, however it doesn't wow you like a traditional hybrid.
  • Dashboard: The dashboard is very stimulating and provides you with interesting information. However expect a slight adjustment period as this dash is similar to a jet.
  • Cost to Maintain: This feature is more about the manufacturer than the car itself. This car is no exception, cost to maintain is low and thats a plus.


  • Power: This car is slow, very slow. It's a fun car, but when your foot is planted to the floor don't expect anything to happen. Cornering hard is about all the fun you can have, however even for a casual drive the car's lack of power hurts. It can be hard getting up to speed on highways.
  • Cargo Space: I knew when I purchased this car that space was going to be tight, however I feel that Honda wasted space. Had they put the spare tire somewhere more practical they could have created plenty of space where the spare sits now.
  • Cabin Noise: The large battery makes plenty of noise when its charging as you coast down a hill. I could certainly do without that.
