Linear dynamics

The lightweight, rigid, aerodynamic body of the CR-Z features acceleration sound tuning and a wide variety of high-precision features.

Made for nimble, enjoyable driving and outstanding fuel economy, the body of the CR-Z is lightweight and highly rigid. For a body structure that is not only light but also highly rigid, the CR-Z features strong high-tensile steel and other lightweight materials, optimized plate thicknesses and cross-sectional shapes and high-strength joints. The advanced aerodynamic design of the CR-Z enhances driving performance, fuel economy and quietness. In addition, the CR-Z features noise-reduction technologies that minimize NVH while allowing for a sound in tune with the CR-Z's sporty acceleration.
