Honda CR-Z gets axed in Australia image

The Australian division of Honda has officially announced the discontinuing of the CR-Z from its local lineup.

The Honda CR-Z, or the Insight as it is also being known, hasn’t turned out to be such a popular vehicle and after removing it from Europe a year ago, the car manufacturer has recently decided to discontinue it in Australia too, so if you were looking of buying one, you won’t be able to place an order anymore. However, that doesn’t mean that you cannot buy an unit remaining on the stock so if you still have your eyes on it, you should probably hurry up and place a deposit. The decision of discontinuing the CR-Z has been taken because of the slow sales.

Honda is still offering the 2015 CR-Z in the United States too where the model in question has a base starting price of 20,935 USD. The vehicle in question is packing in a 1.5 liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine, which is working together with the electric motor, sending power to the wheels through either a six-speed manual or CVT, which is offered as an option. The total output produced stands at 130 HP and 140 lb-ft of torque, which is alloying a fuel consumption of 31 / 38 / 34 mpg in city / highway / combined, in the manual, and 36 / 39 / 37 for the CVT. For an extra 5,495 USD, Honda is offering a supercharger kit, on the manual version, raising the output to 197 HP.
