There has been plenty of debate about the Honda CR-Z around the Autoblog water cooler. Does Honda's sport-inspired mild hybrid have the style, power (122 horsepower), sales appeal and fuel economy numbers (36 miles per gallon city, 38 highway) to make it a legitimate successor to the CRX? We'll have to drive the CR-Z to get the answer to most of our questions, and we'll have to wait for a few months after launch to see whether car buyers will welcome the mild little hybrid with open arms (and wallets).

That said, it beats the heck out of those bizarre-looking animated jazz videos used to market the Accord Crosstour.

Weird, and overdone. Who wears driving gloves in a car that gets 122hp? :P

But I do have to dig the videogame thing Honda has going on with CR-Z's dashboard and gauge cluster.
