Honda has introduced the new 2013 CR-Z facelift at the 20th Indonesia International Motor Show. This time, Honda's theme is "Racing for Blue Skies", to show the new product that combines sporty character with a friendly environment.

"From the beginning, all the products developed Honda engine always show a distinctive character with leading technology, fuel-efficient, cleaner emissions, but still deliver performance and a sporty look. Character Green and Honda Racing was the DNA, " said Tomoki Uchida, President Director of PT Honda Prospect Motor.

"Through the theme" Racing for Blue Skies ", we want to show that creating advanced technologies and protecting the environment can be done without having to lay aside his impression of sporty," he added.

The exterior of the new CR-Z features a modified front bumper, a new front grille and slightly restyled headlights. Other upgrades include a new rear diffuser and a set of nice 17" alloy wheels fitted with proper tires.

The interior is also slightly touched. There is a new tachometer and a new Plus Sport system, which improves the engine's response at the push of a button.
