Honda Ceases CR-Z Sales in Australia

by SpeedLux

The Japanese automaker, Honda, has now made an official announcement unveiling that it will no longer sell the CR-Z for the Australian market. This only adds the list of countries where the Japanese automaker is axing its CR-Z vehicle model. Just as a kind reminder, the company also decided to cease sales of the vehicle in question in the European market.

Taking that into consideration, it is now no longer possible for the citizens of both the European and the Australian continents to place an order on the aforementioned Japanese hybrid sports hatchback. Nevertheless, there may still be a way with which people can actually get to drive one of the vehicles home. They can still buy the remaining examples of the car, but they will have to rush as the stock of the vehicle is reportedly very nearly depleted as well.

The US citizens are much luckier, it seems. They will have no problems ordering the Japanese hybrid sports car. Offered with an asking price of $20,935 in the US market, the vehicle comes with a 1.5L i-VTEC engine, typical of Honda, paired with an electric motor, four inline cylinders and a 6-speed manual transmission, with CVT being available as an option. This engine configuration gives the vehicle a peak power output of 130 bhp and 140 lb-ft of torque.

For the US customers that are in need of a higher power, they can also go for a manual transmission version of the vehicle that is paired with a supercharger kit. Customers will have to spend an additional sum of $5,495 for this kit, though. This will give the vehicle a boost of power output, resulting in a peak power output of 197 bhp altogether. In addition to the supercharging kit, buyers can also spend extra money for extra upgrades, including a sport clutch and a limited slip differential.
