Take Control of a Sporty Hybrid with the Honda CR-Z

If you’re looking to save a little some money at the gas pump and help the environment at the same time, you should be taking a look at getting a hybrid vehicle. For a comparison to aid your research process, check out the side-by-side look between the 2016 Honda CR-Z vs 2016 Toyota Prius c near Washington, D.C.

Everyone expects supreme fuel economy when you’re driving a hybrid, but the 2016 Honda CR-Z might catch some off guard with how sporty it is on the road. The CR-Z records 36/39/37 MPG city/hwy/combined1, but is also able to generate 122 horsepower and 107 lbs.-ft. of torque – vastly superior to the 73 horsepower and 82 lbs.-ft. of torque in the Prius c. The CR-Z married i-VTEC® technology with an electric motor to increase efficiency and power, as the electric motor produces 130 horsepower and 140 lbs.-ft. of torque. For when you need a burst of speed on Route 29, the CR-Z’s Plus Sport System® displaces maximum battery power for a jolt of acceleration when you press the button mounted on the steering-wheel. To contribute even more to the sporty feel of the 2016 Honda CR-Z, it’s the only hybrid equipped with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission.

The comparison between the 2016 Honda CR-Z vs 2016 Toyota Prius c near Washington D.C. moves to their respective interiors. The CR-Z offers 25.1 cubic ft. of trunk space2, which is eight cubic ft. more than the 18.1 cubic ft.2 available in the Prius c. There’s even a cargo area light in the CR-Z for added convenience. With the rear cargo console behind the front seats, in addition to the center console, the CR-Z is full of little spaces for those valuables that you want to keep out of sight. For added comfort, the CR-Z’s seats are heated and trimmed with leather, while the Prius c’s front seats don’t have those features available.  

The CR-Z is fun to drive on the road, thanks in part to its extensive multimedia system. It has seven speakers distributed around the cabin – compared to the Prius c’s four – and with the 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen, you can have access to a whole world of music and entertainment. The CR-Z comes standard with Bluetooth® hands-free calling3 and streaming audio capabilites3. Finding your way to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park has never been easier due to the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™4, which provides turn-by-turn directions. The Prius c doesn’t have a navigation system on its base trim, so you should pack a map if you’re riding in a Toyota.

When it comes to the 2016 Honda CR-Z vs 2016 Toyota Prius c near Washington, D.C., there’s no debate. To see for yourself, schedule a test drive at your local Honda dealer, Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg, to get behind the wheel of a brand-new CR-Z. You won’t regret it!
