Honda Distinguishes New Hybrid’s Braking System from Recalled Prius


The Detroit Bureau - February 25, 2010

Hon­da has been attempt­ing to make sure its image doesn’t become tar­nished like Toyota’s. As the com­pa­ny rolls out the CR-Z hybrid mod­el, it makes the point of dis­tin­guish­ing the vehicle’s brak­ing sys­tem from the recalled 2010 Toy­ota Prius. More styl­ish and sporty than the Hon­da Insight, the CR-Z harkens back to the long-lament­ed Hon­da CR-V, espe­cial­ly with its unusu­al, twin-win­dow hatch.
