2012 Honda CR-Z
The 2012 Honda CR-Z is proof that intelligent design does not have to come at the expense of beauty. In fact, if you look under the hood, you'll find where a sports car and a hybrid meet.
Its power comes from a 1.5-liter I-4 mated with an electric motor. All CR-Zs feature a slick-shifting six-speed manual as standard equipment, although a continuously variable transmission is available. The powertrain has three modes, Eco, Normal, and Sport, which tune the hybrid system for efficiency or performance. Put the CR-Z in full Eco mode and the car can achieve up to 35 mpg in the city and 39 mpg* on the highway.
