Despite announcing that the updated 2013 Honda CR-Z would make its official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the Japanese automaker actually brought it to the Indonesia Motor Show where it was unveiled.

The 2013 Honda CR-Z facelift was revealed last week with a redesigned front grille, a new front bumper, HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, fog lights, new side mirrors, rear diffuser, LED rear lights, and 17-inch wheels. As expected, the 2013 CR-Z gets a slight increase in the performance department, with its horsepower going from 122 hp to 134 hp while the torque goes from 128 lb-ft to 140 lb-ft on the six-speed manual. As for the continuously variable transmission (CVT) model, it’ll have 133 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.

But to give it an even sportier drive, a new S+ button has been added to the CR-Z. It activates the new Plus Sport System allowing the hybrid powertrain to sacrifice some of its fuel economy for better performance.

AutoGuide will be sure to report more on the details when the CR-Z makes its (second) official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
