According to the car manufacturer, the Honda CR-Z equipped with a CVT transmission, has a starting price of RM119,000 on the road, which means that the Asian model is RM4,000 more expensinve than the six-speed manual version. The Honda CR-Z with its CVT transmission is still coming with the same “classis” 100,000 km or three-year warranty, while the battery has a 140,000 km or a five-year warranty. Honda says that just about everything else, besides the transmission, has remained unchanged on the CR-Z model.

As a quick reminder, the Honda CR-Z is a compact vehicle marketed as a “sport hybrid coupe”, which is combining a hybrid gasoline-electric powertrain with a traditional sports car.

The Honda CR-Z is coming with a three-door body style and the model is 4,080 mm long, 1,740 mm wide and 1,395 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,435 mm and a curb weight of 1,236 kg for the CVT version.
