While we were waiting for the Paris Motor Show to catch our first full glimpse of the new 2013 Honda CR-Z, official pictures of the car emerged all the way from Indonesia where Honda unveiled the car to the public at the 20th Indonesian international motor show. They also revealed how much more power the car has. It’s not much.
The new Facelift CR-Z comes with more power than the old model which had a dismal 120 horsepower. This one is said to have 135 horsepower and 170 Nm of torque. Now, 15 horsepower is not going to make that much of a difference, is it. We were hoping for at least 150 horses.
As for the looks, while the base remains the same, the CR-Z gets revised front bumper and grille, featuring new fog lights and above them new bi-xenon headlights with DRL LEDs inside them. It also gets 17-inch wheels, new LED taillights and a new rear skirt.
There is still hope that the European CR-Z will have more power, because as the first teasers revealed the car comes with a S+ button. That must mean something!
