Nope, original insight actually came in 5 speed also.
So basically, the first ever hybrid car that came into production was a 5 speed.

I think if they price this car at ~18k, it will sell pretty well. Anything higher, it will be stealing business with the insight. Or if it's priced at the prius, no one will buy it since the prius is much nicer inside and out.

Who the hell would want the CR-Z. CR-Z looks like the ugly ass Honda Insight + Z4 headlights.

The US version will not have the back seats. This is a jdm one. Same thing with the jdm crx which had back seats. Pretty much useless but at least you can use it as storage or something.

that's good to hear. I'd rather have more trunk space than some useless backseats
