The outer appearance of the CR-Z model is formed around the concept of one motion wedge with a low front part and a broad attitude that gives the car a self-confident, athletic look.
The recognizable features of Honda design, such as the third-door glass split into two surfaces and the aerodynamic, slightly curved roofline, were successfully combined with a sleek coupe design.
