Thankfully, Honda reportedly is ready to show off its newest car. At least, that is according to people in the car and the driver, who said the new CR-Z will arrive sans hybrid when it hits the market sometime in 2018.

“The two reasons that forced Honda to phase it out [in Europe and Australia], namely its weak street cred and lack of performance thanks to its ho-hum hybrid power unit, have been addressed. The new coupe will be a force to reckon with,” insists our source.

Expected to be partially larger than the current 2018 Honda CR-Z, the new version will certainly borrow style signs from the brand-new NSX and also the Civic Type R. Under the hood will certainly be a detuned variation of the Type R’s turbocharged, 2.0-liter VTEC four-cylinder draining greater than 280 horsepower. It looks as if the CR-Z will certainly be placed and marketed as a high-performance coupe version of the next-generation U.S. Civic, which indicates it might be called the Civic CR-Z.

While the united state version will certainly be fitted with the 2.0-liter engine, Honda is planning to review the hybrid for the Japanese domestic market; that edition will certainly employ a turbocharged 1.5-liter hybrid i-DCD powertrain creating upwards of 200 horsepower and also incorporating an eight-speed automated transmission.
