Honda has dropped a teaser image for the refreshed CR-Z that will make its debut at the Paris Motor Show later in the month.

The teaser shot shows Honda has made a few design changes to the front end. There's a strip of LED lighting running under the HID headlights and new grille insert.

The big changes are underneath the hood. Honda says the CR-Z will receive power increases for the gas engine and its electric motor. Honda is staying quiet on how much more power the CR-Z will, though it does say the power increase will not effect fuel economy or emissions.

      Confirming reports from yesterday, Honda has officially announced the closure of its manufacturing facility in Swindon UK as part of a global restructuring at the end of the current products lifecycle in 2021.  The Swindon plant manufactures Honda Civic and Honda CR-V.
      Honda officials insisted that Brexit was not the reason for the closure, but rather global trends in the automotive industry.   A factory in Turkey will also close as part of the restructuring as Honda recenters all EU market manufacturing back to Japan. 
      No changes in production or jobs are expected until the 2021 time frame.

      Sky News is reporting that Honda is preparing announce as early as tomorrow the closure of its only EU manufacturing facility in Swindon UK.  The plant currently produces over 100,000 Honda Civics and directly employs 3,500 workers. The plant has been in operation since 1985.  If confirmed, the plant would close in 2022 and have drastic consequence for downstream suppliers. 
      This move would be a sudden change of direction for Honda which recently insisted that the UK was a key part of their automobile manufacturing plans. The possibility of a no-deal Brexit likely hastened the decision to close the plant. The Japanese government has negotiated a trade deal with the EU that went into effect on February 1, 2019 that would allow Honda to import vehicles from Japan to the EU tariff free. 
      The news comes just as Jaguar-Land Rover plans to cut 4,500 jobs and Nissan shelves plans to build new models in the UK.

      For the driver, Honda Dream Drive offers an expansion of Honda's existing in-vehicle payment system.  It allows drivers to pay for fuel, movie tickets, food pickup or delivery, and parking. Additionally, the system can make restaurant reservations and share the vehicle location with family and friends. Originally exclusively through Visa, the payment system now include Mastercard and Paypal. 
      For passengers, Honda Dream Drive offers games, watch movies, listen to music, use travel apps, and explore points of interest along the route, all from the passengers' mobile device. 
      As this is a demonstration of a prototype, there is no official release date announced for Honda Dream Drive.
