Purchased the CRZ to replace my old CRX which had 400,000 miles on it. I drove the CVT model and it was very dull. However, the Manual transmission is tons of fun to drive. I look for reasons to drive this car because it is so much fun to drive and the gas cost practically nothing.
Price of the car was a bargain and with the 3 different driving modes I get the feeling like I purchased 3 different cars. I can drive fast and reckless in sport mode, or slow and fuel efficient in ECO.
Overall this car is extremely fun to drive; the instrumentation on the dash board makes me feel like Im flying a space ship. But dont expect the Porsche like handling that the CRX delivered.
Front end looks
Race style seats
Long list of amazing standard features on base model.
Low power at high speed.
Gas and performance are not as good as the 20 year old CRX's.
Too much roll
