What’s New for ’11
The all-new 2-passenger coupe combines “green” efficiency and fun-to-drive performance. It is the only hybrid to offer a 6-speed manual transmission, according to Honda.
It is a parallel hybrid powered by a 1.5L 4-cyl. engine in conjunction with a 100-volt electric motor – mated to either a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddles that allow the driver to shift through a simulated set of gear ratios.
The driver can select from Econ, Normal and Sport settings that control the operation of the hybrid drive system for a specific driving style.
Some standard equipment includes automatic climate control, 6-speaker sound system with USB-type input, power windows and locks, keyless entry and cruise control.
