For those that remember their CRX fondly, the CRZ is likely a love at first sight experience. For others, the CRZ will be a polarizing, love it or leave it two-seater that has a very unique feel. Pros: Sporty exterior look, three distinct performance personalities, exceptional and intimate cab design, lots of technical features for the MSRP, tight handling and excellent sound acoustics. Cons: Lack-luster hybrid fuel efficiency, quarter panel blind spots, mushy economy-mode performance and dated navigation. Overall, the CRZ is a great commuter car for those who are looking for a fun driving experience and a sporty look. Reasonable MPG expectations will prevent disappointment.
Sports mode, intimate interior, pleasing exterior curves, many technical and entertaining features, glowing "CRZ" logo in door frames, low-profile, lack of road noise, throaty engine and a great acoustical environment.
Better rear visibility, either more power or better MPG, less "chatty" computer interface.
