Maybe it’s the plummeting sales, maybe it’s the introduction of Hyundai Veloster, but whatever it is Honda has reportedly fast-tracked development of the CR-Z Turbo. It took them too long though to realize that the pathetic 120-hp hybrid powertrain they’ve put in the CR-Z is nothing but a big disappointment!

The Turbo CR-Z will be powered by a 1.6 liter Turbocharged engine which, again reportedly, will be available in two versions with either 160 or 200 bhp. It will also benefit from Honda’s VTEC-i variable camshafts timing system for a good compromise between power and efficiency.

The idea of a powerful CR-Z sounds very good, and it could very well turn it from a good-car-ruined-by-bad-engine into a full-on sporty coupe it always wanted to be. We’re so looking forward to it. Of course it’s going to take Honda at least one year to finish it. Chop Chop Please!
