Honda has updated the CR-Z hybrid with focus on style and performance.

The 2013 CR-Z gets a new front bumper design, which frames a revised grille, a new diffuser design and new 17-inch alloy wheels for the GT model.

The CR-Z’s 1.5-litre petrol engine has been updated to produce 119bhp (up from 112bhp).

The electric motor system packs now 15kW(up by 5kW) and the Nickel-metal hybrid (Ni-MH) battery has been replaced with a Lithium Ion battery.

Combined power output is now 135bhp and the 0-62mph time falls from 9.7 seconds to 9.0 seconds, while the top speed is 124 mph. The combined fuel consumption is 56.5 mpg and CO2 emissions at 116 g/km.

Revised CR-Z also comes with a Plus Sport (S+) boost system, that can be used when the battery is more than 50 per cent charged. When the accelerator is pressed the electric boost begins, delivering increased acceleration for up to ten seconds.
