The 2016 CR-Z looks familiar, but more angular and aggressive.

When it's dark inside your personal airplane hangar, you'll be glad you splurged for the optional HID headlamps.

Honda has switched out the CR-Z's old slat grille for a sportier mesh execution.

The CR-Z's stubby rear end remains, albeit with new ground effects.

The 2016 CR-Z's profile deviates the least from past years, but subtle sill extensions are new.

In this view you can clearly see the optional LED fog lights and LED daytime running lamps.

Rear visibility has never been a CR-Z strong suit, but newly added LaneWatch blind-spot technology should help.

With a retuned suspension and bigger brakes, the 2016 CR-Z should be better equipped to tackle roads like this.
