As 2016 rolls in, HCPI is giving their customers the opportunity to see the new 2016 CR-Z 1.5 IMA. The new sports hybrid will be in select dealers across Luzon in anticipation for the official launch later this month.
This dealer tour gives customers a concrete feel of the 2016 CR-Z’s newest features. Customers can see and feel for themselves how the New CR-Z 1.5 IMA redefines the sports car by combing the power of a coupe and the smart technology of a hybrid. The 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine is coupled with a compact Integrated Motor Assist Hybrid System (IMA). This results in a combined output of as much as 136 PS (134 horsepower) and 19.4 kg-m of torque for manual transmission variants.
A 3-Mode Drive System give drivers an optimum and balanced drive whether in the city or the highway while normal, Econ and Sport mode provide performance and efficiency that complement all driving needs. In Sport mode, The CR-Z delivers exciting performance that only a sporty hybrid car can offer. The Plus Sport System is an experience that is a push of a button away, with the S+ button that primes the engine for a sudden boost in performance. With this feature, CR-Z drivers can get the acceleration feeling similar to the V6, 3.0-liter engine cars with the push of a button.
The new CR-Z will inspire drivers as it provides full command with its advanced and intuitively designed controls. The “Exciting Mature Cockpit” includes the new Push Start System, and a seven-inch Touch Screen Display with navigation features also acts as a display for the multi-view camera system. A new center console between the seats incorporates an armrest and a storage compartment. Also found on the center console and replacing the old lever-style brake is the new Electric Parking Brake (EPB). This feature activates the holding mechanism with a push of a button. For new electrical features, include the Active Noise Control (ANC) that muffles sound reduction while the Active Sound Control (ASC) that provides an exciting sporty sound.
