We’ve already seen several images of Honda’s upcoming CR-Z thanks to a leaked company brochure and now we have more images of the hybrid “sports car” thanks to some leaked video stills. There’s not a lot new here, but we do get to see several new angles. And while the photos are low quality, we can get a better idea of the futuristic (and busy) dash.

Powering the CR-Z is a more powerful version of Honda’s IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) powerplant, which consists of a 112-hp and 107 ft-lbs of torque 1.5-liter, 4-cylinder gasoline engine, which is mated to an electric motor, producing an additional 14-hp and 57 ft-lbs of torque. Honda claims a 0-62 mph time of 9.7 seconds.

As for fuel-economy, the CR-Z is rated at 52/59 mpg (City/Highway) in the Japanese test cycle. Those numbers aren’t expected to be nearly so high in North America once the EPA gets a hold of the CR-Z.

There’s no official word, but Honda may debut the production version CR-Z at the Detroit Auto Show on January 11th.

    Not sure what car Honda has there but it is not the CRZ. At least not from the pictures I have seen of the car. No way this is the CRZ unless Honda radically changed things at the last minute, which I doubt. Looking forward to seeing the real CRZ at the Washington Auto show later this month.
