Photos that are said to show the facelifted 2016 Honda CR-Z have hit the web.
A new CR-Z is due to arrive in 2018, but to keep the car current, Honda is giving it a facelift. The photos, which reportedly show the updated CR-Z for China, show a more aggressive front end, new headlights, new spoilers, a new rear bumper, new alloy wheels and an updated interior.
The updates on the inside are in line with most modern Honda interiors, as the car gets a new electronic parking brake, a new infotainment screen and a revised manual gear shifter.
Until the car is fully revamped in 2018, powertain updates are not expected which means the CR-Z will continue to use a 130-hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a mild hybrid powertain. Manual equipped models put out 140 lb-ft of torque, while models with a CVT make only 127 lb-ft.
