2015 Honda CR-Z Hybrid is practically has no direct rivals in the category of cars ‘ sport hybrid hatch-back coupe ‘. Now Honda develop the CR-Z with the official tuner, Mugen, and gave birth to the car you see here, ‘ CR-Z Mugen RZ ‘. This car engine wears 1.5 liter SOHC i-VTEC and the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA), which is the same as the standard, the CR-Z with an added supercharger.
With the addition of supercharger. The energy generated from this supercharged engine went up 36 hp be 156 hp, and followed the change of multiple devices and a special ECU is programmed by Mugen. When combined with an electric motor of his car, the IMA has a maximum power of 176 hp at 6,600 rpm engine revolutions and maximum torque of 185 nm at 5200 rpm engine revolutions. MUGEN also provides changes to the suspension a little harder and special braking system.
The addition of the sporty impression was succeeded by 2015 Honda CR-Z on the exterior and interior appearance. The car that all 300 units already sold out all over the world performing with color Azul Blue Metallic which is exclusive for CR-Z Mugen RZ. This car is equipped with body-kit Mugen from the front to the back, including a large rear wing made of carbon-fiber racing alloy wheels and 17-inch. While its interior has touches of blue color similar with the car on some parts of the body, the supercharger boost-meters, and the Serial number Plate ‘ 088 ‘ marker of exclusivity.
When the machine is turned on, sound is generated from exhaust Mugen increasingly indicate that 2015 Honda CR-Z is more aimed at showing off than manners as the default version. His voice was very exciting adrenaline.
When pressing the ‘ Sport ‘ mode drive, the light on the meter-cluster change from blue (‘ normal ‘) becomes red, and round its little engine. The CR-Z Mugen RZ we test here uses a 6-speed manual transmission with a distance of displacement between the short teeth (speedshift) and it’s so sensitive clutch racing-style clutch, so that we can be more ‘ intimate ‘ explores this car. Pretty impressive acceleration thanks to supercharger, plus sound generated increasingly attractive as round machine increases.
The prevalence of the ‘ s+ ‘ on the circumference of the steering wheel maximizes the performance of the engine and electric motor, with the aba aba-indicator “Ready S +” flashing, and then stepping out of the accelerator. We had the car up to speed on this spur 190 kpj on the State Street is a safe, proven additional aero-kit makes the CR-Z remains stable in the streets. Acceleration 0-100 kpj successfully implemented in the range of 10 seconds. Not too impressive, due to the need of transmission and conditioning also factor the weather.
The impression of having fun together 2015 Honda CR-Z is quite present in high speed. We were so impressed with the reliability of the region’s typical Mugen for the suspension, Steering response, and weights that fit, as well as tire Dunlop 205/45 R17 size which can be gripped tightly with the asphalt. CR-Z turn with steady and alacrity makes any driver feel confident. The effect of understeer was unnoticeable during the maneuver.
After playing around in the mode ‘ Sport ‘, we press the mode ‘ Econ ‘ and try to explore sides of his hybrid efficiency in urban areas. In addition to getting stares in awe of the other roads users thanks to how it looks, we’ve also got the right fuel consumption figures 13 kpl when passing traffic hours Home Office that is so dense. There are auto-stop systems that will turn off the engine when the car is in neutral gear position, and will light up again when stepping on the clutch and put the teeth 1 for fuel efficiency. Whereas when a constant Highway speeds, the display shows the number of MID 25 kpl. Impressive and stunning.
The drawback is located on visibility. The back window is separated into two partitions creating a line of blind-spot. In addition an additional rear wing rear glass wiper also removes the top of which is present on the standard CR-Z. To be sure, this car gets a perfect score thanks to his showing today’s hybrid technology, control, efficiency, charming and alluring look also. We wholeheartedly are waiting for the parameter when the four returned in one package car as this 2015 Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ.
