2013 Honda CR-Z facelift launched

Honda Malaysia has officially taken the covers off its facelifted Honda CR-Z at its launch event at the Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam. Price On-the-road with insurance is RM119,000 for the Manual and RM123,000 for the CVT.

Also new is the timely introduction of a Lithium-ion battery pack that brings the CR-Z hybrid up another notch above the rest of the small hybrids. Lithium-ion batteries are already making their way into the more expensive hybrids, and the Honda Civic hybrid is also currently supplied with Lithium-ion batteries. It is great to see that Honda is taking the lead here by moving into the latest technologies available.

Exterior enhancements to the new car come in the form of a new front bumper and grille, enhanced DRLs, new HID headlamps and rear LED combination lamps and a new rear diffuser. The Indonesian debut vehicle wore a new 17-inch alloy wheel, which the Malaysian car doesn’t get – it retains the familiar 16-inchers, wrapped with 195/55 rubbers.

While the new Honda CR-Z may employ the same 1.5-litre i-VTEC engine as the outgoing model, the new CR-Z is given more horsepower and performance via an enhanced and more powerful electric motor. The new Honda Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system gives the facelifted car 12PS and 16Nm of torque more than before.

The new Honda CR-Z makes a total of 136PS and 190Nm of torque from its petrol and IMA system together. This will see the car dash to 100km/h at 0.7 seconds quicker (9 seconds flat) than the previous model.

The Honda CR-Z will be offered in with the same two transmissions as before, a six-speed manual and a seven-speed CVT.

Honda Malaysia also announced at the launch of the new Honda CR-Z that it is now offering customers a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage that also covers the IMA battery. As encouragement to customers to maintain their vehicles according to schedule, a new free service package comprising up to six free labour services alternating with paid services until 100,000 km will be offered to all owners of the new CR-Z.
