You sit noticeably low in the Honda CR-Z adding to the feeling you’re in a sport car rather that an eco hatch. The CR-Z benefits from its own bespoke interior, that is innovative as it is clear and easy to use. There are some hard plastics used, but overall it’s a far better effort compared to the Insight that felt cheap in comparison. Like the hybrid hatch, the best feature is the illuminated halo surrounding the speedo that glows green when you’re driving economically to blue to red when you’re pressing on.

Think of the CR-Z as a two-seater with a couple of very occasional rear seats and you won’t be disappointed with the amount of space on offer. There’s plenty of shoulder room and space to stretch out up front. Compared to the Insight, the CR-Z has far stiffer suspension to help it roll less in corners, but the ride is still comfortable enough. Road noise can become a little intrusive at times.
