5. Honda CR-Z
Honda’s fuel-sipping CR-Z hybrid hails from the Contradiction Planet where left is right, yes is across the street and the color purple is a basket of puppies. This car is an oxymoron if the auto industry ever built one.
The tiny two-door is billed as a performance hybrid, two traits that, believe it or not, are exclusive to one another. The car is designed to sip fuel and deliver an engaging driving experience. It may be decently thrifty but with a combined total of just 130 horsepower the CR-Z will never deliver breathtaking acceleration and therefore it isn’t all that much fun. At least a proper manual transmission is available. If Honda wanted a three-letter name for this vehicle perhaps they should have gone with W,T and F.
