The CR-Z is powered by Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system, which is a combination of a 1.5-liter gas engine and a 13-hp electric motor, all attached to either a six-speed manual, or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The engine and motor combined generate 122-hp and 128-lb.ft of torque. Available in two trims, Base and EX, both include six airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, automatic climate control, power windows, locks and mirrors, keyless entry, a CD audio system with an auxiliary input and USB connection, alloy wheels and cruise control. The EX adds Bluetooth, a high power 7-speaker audio system, HID headlights, fog lights, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and heated mirrors. For 2012, the CR-Z continues unchanged, with the exception of a new black interior option available when ordered with Crystal Black Pearl paint color.
