Consumer Reports: Worst gas-thrifty car is Honda CR-Z

08:25 AM


The new two-seat Honda CR-Z hybrid hatchback scored so low on Consumer Reports' tests that it says it can't recommend it.

"Despite getting 35 miles per gallon overall and having a crisp manual transmission, its ride was stiff, visibility is lacking, and it isn't very sporty to drive. It was the lowest ranked of the four fuel-efficient cars that CR tested this month," the magazine said.

On the upside, the new Ford Fiesta and Mazda2 subcompacts posted "very good" ratings in the magazine's ratings. The corporate twins are both fun to drive and deliver impressive fuel economy, CR says. The vehicles are part of a test in the January issue that featured four different types of fuel-efficient cars.
