Supporting a sporty and dynamic styling for a new era, the low, short, wide packaging combines a highly efficient form with the feeling of forward movement.

The exterior design of the CR-Z inspires drivers to take to the road while conveying the advanced and clean image of a hybrid. Deeply inset, flowing panels accentuate the low, short and wide packaging. The front and rear fenders extend aggressively while smoothly completing the one-motion wedge form conveying forward movement. The high-curvature windshield gives unity to the cabin, and the lighting elements with their crystalline motif give a futuristic touch.
