The CR-Z concept vehicle will be displayed together with a variety of environmental technologies that address environmental issues such as a reduction in CO2 emissions and fun of mobility, nased on the theme “For the endless joy of mobility on our earth”.

Exterior design

Designed to be ‘Futuristic and Dynamic’, the CR-Z combines powerful performance in a compact form with a futuristic image.

For its frontal view, an over-sized grill with a high-performance look is offset by openings on each side that lighten the overall feel.

In the rear, tube-shaped rear combination lamps ensure better rearward visibility.

Design details emphasizing the CR-Z’s advanced image include door mirrors that provide high visibility in a stylish form, LED headlights patterned after luminous bodies to convey a sharp impression, and jaunty fin-shaped sub-lights.

The dynamic appearance is enhanced by large, 19-inch wheels.

Mesh material on a simple framework construction is used throughout the interior to convey "a light, sophisticated image without being oppressive."

In the cockpit, the meter unit conveys the image of advanced technology ensconced in a piece of glass artwork, offering a futuristic and exhilarating look.
