Honda CR-Z
Honda CR-Z
The sporty hybrid shown here is the Honda CR-Z concept car shown at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. At the Detroit Auto Show, Honda will unveil a full production version intended for the U.S. market.

In Japan, the CR-V will be a four seater. For American customers, Honda will leave out the back seats, making it a two-seater, reminiscent of the fun and efficient Honda CR-X of the '80s. That's because Americans value cargo space over passenger space, Honda says.

Honda promises a fun and sporty driving style. It remains to be seen whether it can match the 51 mile per gallon fuel economy of the old non-hybrid CR-X.
