Mugen releases details on Honda CR-Z upgrades

Honda claims its new CR-Z hybrid hatchback will mark a return to the days of the sporty little CR-X. With that in mind Honda specialist tuner Mugen, is now showing off its package of accessories for the CR-Z ahead of its official sale date. Unfortunately, none of the new kit will make the car any faster, but it should make the CR-Z look meaner.

Included in the upgrade are a reworked front and rear fascias, side skirts and a very prominent roof-mounted rear spoiler. A new grille with optional LED lamps can be include, triangular rear exhaust tips could sit out back, and there’s at least five different alloy wheel options. There are also some finer details like a unnecessary carbon fibre license plate holder.

Interior upgrades include an aluminum gearshift knob, a three-gauge central cluster, new floor mats etc etc. Luckily, there are a few extras that will improve the car’s driving dynamics, including a sportier exhaust system, upgraded springs and shocks and upgraded brake pads. Will those pieces be enough to offset the added weight of the body kit? Possibly, but they sure make it look cool.
