Gotta love the brake "upgrade", especially since a hybrid doesn't use them except below 5mph and under emergency braking conditions...

Idk where your knowledge comes from but you couldn't be more wrong. I have a crz and have done brake upgrades and it affected it the exact same as when I upgraded the brakes on my gsr

Regenerative braking. That is how hybrids gain efficiency compared to a conventional car.

Though, if the CRZ isn't using such, that might help explain it's poor mileage rating...

How else would it charge the batteries!?!? The pull of the moon?

It won't be able to charge the battery any faster than it can discharge so your talking 10kW of retardation available..... No where near enough to slow at a decent rate, anything above light braking with use both the ima motor and friction brakes... If its a manual 5mph is when the IMA will stop regenning to prevent it stalling when you clutch in!

Honda needs to fire their exterior design team and hire the folks from Mugen. VERY nice, I'd buy one asap if it was $24-28k. If the front/rear fascias looked this aggressive from Honda there would be a lot more CR-Z's on the road.

Are you kidding me? No not even close

If that was the case than those cars would basically never need brakes...

The brakes are used all the time + a little extra help from the IMA motor adding resistance to run its motor to charge the batteries, it can't stop a car anywhere near what the brakes will do.
