2027 Honda CRZ Interior, Engine, MPG   –  Honda isn’t content to sit on its laurels in the cutthroat compact crossover market, even if the CRZ had a redesign only a few years ago. The 2027 CRZ is here, and it looks fresher than ever thanks to some cosmetic updates and new standard features that give it a leg up on the competition.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

2027 Honda CRZ Interior Redesign and Update Plan

Exterior and Interior

For quite some time, reviewers have been griping about how many different Honda vehicles’ infotainment systems lack a volume knob. Despite the fact that the arrival of the CRZ altered everything, this remains true here. But it’s still the sole physical control for the infotainment system; everything else is touch-activated, which is great for minimalism but isn’t the greatest way to interact with a car, especially while wearing gloves. My number one want is for a second knob to adjust the volume of your radio and a few buttons to skip tracks.2027 Honda CRZ Interior

The climate control system, alas, makes use of standard knobs and buttons; nevertheless, these controls are quite small and might prove tedious to use when driving. Every Honda comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto because the company’s interfaces are responsive and have great graphics, but they aren’t exactly easy to use. The interfaces aren’t exactly user-friendly, so this is a nice perk. The trip computer is one example of an interface that was extremely difficult to use. To counter this, the wireless charging pad offers a plethora of spots to charge electronic devices, and the four charging ports are practical.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

2027 Honda CRZ Specs

One of two new trim levels for 2020, the Sport is what my test car had. The Black Edition is the second new trim level, and it puts the CRZ at the very top of the lineup in Canada. Formerly known as the EX trim, the Sport is a new addition for this year. The Sport trim level of the CRZ comes equipped with a bunch of cool features. It has body-colored door mirrors with integrated turn signals, variable intermittent wipers, round LED fog lights, a power sunroof (with a panoramic unit available on higher trims), chrome exhaust tips, a six-speaker stereo, four USB ports (two front, two rear), and a 12-way power driver’s seat.2027 Honda CRZ Reviews

However, there are just four manual adjustments available for the front passenger seat. (The EX-L, the next trim level up from the base model, has a motorized passenger seat, although even that one only goes in four directions.) As of 2020 model year, heated seats and remote starter are standard on all trim levels. The vehicle I tested came equipped with a heated steering wheel, a feature that was previously unavailable on the EX trim level it replaced.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

Engine and Performance

Despite its unappealing noise, the CRZ’s four-cylinder engine can match the performance of its main competitors, churning out 190 hp and 179 pound-feet of torque. However, you shouldn’t expect any kind of sportiness that would be considered “sport.” Everything goes smoothly during delivery, and the powertrain’s essential parts coordinate to provide rapid and responsive acceleration. Despite the output being sent through an automatic continuously variable gearbox (CVT), which doesn’t exactly provide the most exciting driving experiences, this remains true.2027 Honda CRZ Engine

Despite my initial doubts, the engine not only performs brilliantly in the smaller and lighter Civic, but it also meets my expectations in this area. There is a solid reason why this remains one of the most popular sellers in the market; it handles these situations with the kind of flare that can only be attained with years of knowledge in the subject.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

2027 Honda CRZ Fuel Economy

The Honda CRZ has the best fuel economy of any small non-hybrid all-wheel drive crossover, with a total of 8.1 liters per hundred kilometers. The Honda CRZ gets 8.7 L/100 km in city driving and 7.4 L/100 km on the highway, according to NRCan. The only reason it doesn’t get a higher rating is because of hybrid crossovers like the Ford Escape Hybrid and the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, which have combined mpg ratings of 5.9 and 6.0, respectively.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

2027 Honda CRZ Safety Features

When the CRZ was introduced in 2020, all trim levels came included with the Honda Sensing suite of safety features. Despite its funny moniker, it has advanced safety features including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation, and front collision warning with automated emergency braking. While a blind-spot warning system isn’t standard on the Sport model, the driver does get access to a live feed of the passenger side of the vehicle through Honda’s camera-based blind-spot display. This feature’s lustre has been dwindling for a while now that Hyundai has developed a system that checks the sides of the car and shows the data in the gauge cluster instead of the main screen. It remains a cool feature, though. To me, it seems like the second approach is the most intuitive and natural choice. 2027 Honda CRZ Interior

2027 Honda CRZ Price and Release Date

In 2027, the CRZ will see a $1,000 increase to its base pricing and a $1,750 increase to the Sport compared to the EX model from the previous year. You should nevertheless take note of the price rise, even though it is not huge. For context, the price includes a plethora of options, such the heated steering wheel and standard safety suite, whether you’re looking at the base model or this Sport.  2027 Honda CRZ Interior

Expectations that the CRZ will maintain its high sales volume are based on solid reasoning. In terms of interior storage, exterior storage, passenger capacity, and technological requirements, it is nearly perfect in every respect. A little scratchy engine noise shouldn’t be a dealbreaker as long as there’s enough turbopower and the ride is pleasant overall.
