The end is near for Honda’s hybrid CR-Z coupe. The model was given a handful of minor updates last year, but the car-maker has just announced that it will send off CR-Z in Japan with a limited-edition model called Final Label.
The coupe receives 17-inch alloy wheels, a metallic blue paint job, and “Final Label” logos embroidered into the front seat backs. A metal plaque riveted to the center console lets the occupants know that they’re not sitting in a run-of-the-mill CR-Z. Finally, Honda has added a long list of standard features borrowed from the range-topping trim level.
Mechanically, the Final Label is identical to the regular-production CR-Z. That means it uses a gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain made up of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a small electric motor. Combined, the two power sources generate 130 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque when the four-banger is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission. Selecting the CVT lowers torque to 127 pound-feet.
Honda hasn’t announced how much the CR-Z Final Label will cost, and we don’t know how many examples will be built yet. At the time of writing the Final Label has only been announced for the Japanese market, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Honda introduces a similar limited-edition model in the United States in the not-too-distant future.
