The Honda CR-Z has been with us since 2010 and you may have forgotten about it because, well, it’s a bit of a slow seller. And according to automotive press coverage on the model, the CR-Z isn’t exactly a very a compelling vehicle since it doesn’t exactly fulfill its premise of being an affordable, sporty hatch with efficiency with flying colors.
Regardless, the CR-Z is remains to be an attractive, fun-to-drive hatchback that’s still available for sale for the 2015 model year and some new spy photos surfaced of what appears to be a new-facelifted model, for the Chinese market.
From the spy shots, the updated CR-Z gets a new face thanks to a revised front fascia and some new headlights, designed to follow Honda’s current design trend, modeled after Acura’s LED low beams. Some new wheels also appear to be a apart of the update as well.
Not much is known, but this revise CR-Z seems rather odd since rumors suggest an entirely new CR-Z is due in 201. So it doesn’t really quite make sense for Honda to update the CR-Z again (as it was in 2013), but given how auto companies like to extend the manufacturing of certain models just for China’s booming car market, this tweaked CR-Z could be just that.
