    Post Switching to a Hybrid

    Hey guys,

    As the world is slowly not liking what we are doing to it with all the greenhouse gasses and global warming going off, i think its about time i started doing my little bit to help the environment. I have been looking into buying a new car but i wan't to go hybrid, obviously the Honda Accord or the Prius are the 2 main hybrid cars people go for. I have been looking into the Honda CR-Z hybrid 2016 model and it's looking pretty sweet to me i will place some specs below. What i am here for is this will be my first hybrid so what things should i look out for? what is the maintenance like to keep them running as well as possible? What does it feel like to go from gas to electric? I know these days the hybrid cars are designed very well and that it should be hard to tell the difference in the later models.

    SOME SPECS
    Year: 2016
    Make: Honda
    Model: CR-Z
    Engine: In-line 4 cylinder
    Displacement: 1497cc / 1.5 L
    Transmission: 6 speed manual

    Also if anyone on here has this car could you share your experiences with the CR-Z itself please!
    Any information/advice would be greatly appreciated! Looking forward to chatting to everyone.

    Thanks guys

    I have read some reviews online
    \"The 2016 Honda CR-Z doesn't drive as sporty as it looks, and its two-seat interior limits practicality. It's a fun city car, but there are better choices for a sport compact.\"

    \"Pros

    Good fuel economy; sporty looks.

    Cons

    Poor rearward visibility; excessive road noise; most rivals offer backseats.

    What's New for 2016

    For 2016, the Honda CR-Z gets an updated look front and rear, and more standard features and options, including a 7-inch touchscreen entertainment display and a blind-spot warning system.\"

    Don't get me wrong the cons aren't so great but it could be worse

    After doing some research and chatting to a couple other people on a couple other forums they have actually changed my mind and turned me away from the CR-Z option. It turns out i would be better off buying a new-ish second hand hybrid and just giving it some lover where needed, this was it is even more Environmentally friendly also by technically recycling. I have found some awesome Hybrid motors i will place the link below if you fancy a look you can check it out
