The Honda CR-Z has won Best Sports Car at the What Car? Green Awards

Honda CR-Z 1.5 i-VTEC Sport

The Honda CR-Z was commended for its best-in-class economy and value for money.

The CR-Z, priced from £16,999, won praise for its sharp handling, efficient engine and sporty looks, as well as its unique design.

What Car? editor-in-chief Steve Fowler said: “The CR-Z is small and light and looks just right, and it’s powered by hybrid technology which means it’s clean and efficient to run too. The CR-Z is the greenest and most cost effective sports car available in the market place today.”

As the first hybrid with a sporty 6-speed manual gearbox, the CR-Z stands out from other green cars on the market and offers true driving thrills thanks to an agile chassis, direct steering, a low driving position and boosts of torque from the petrol-electric drivetrain.

Demand for the car has been strong since its release in June, with over 500 cars sold in the UK in the first month. Most customers have chosen the top spec GT model, priced at £19,999.

The What Car? Green awards, now in their third year, look for the best eco-friendly cars to buy. Rather than centre exclusively on emissions or miles per gallon, the awards take in a range of factors including value for money, safety and the driving experience, but maintain a core focus on environmental impact.
