The hybrid sports car is nicely decorated and well set from its interiors the dash is designed futuristically and nicely bolstered comfortable and supportive seats. The car control board is located in the approach of driver to manage the sequences easily. The navigation screen is placed to view the interior looks great when lights appeared in night. Things are more pixilated on screen of the upgraded infotainment display technology.

The basic concept with this car is that the element of fun that is the main element of the CR-Z DNA is retained. To enable this, a sports aesthetic is retained without compromising on the Honda look. The Wraptivo vehicle wrap options that are being put on the car will demonstrate how the new technology can be used to protect a vehicle from losing the factory paint job and also give users an easy option for changing the look of their car.

I realize the S2000 has been out of production for a bit, but I was really looking forward to this comparison, two-on-one. I didn't expect much from the Insight, it's always seemed to be much like a Mazda MX3. but the ever so lightly touched comment about the S2000 didn't rate a comparison any more agressive than a glance at a pretty woman.

Dave, I understand wanting to see that comparison. However, I see this piece not as a direct comparison, but more as touching on historical influences that led to the CR-Z. The focus could be diluted if too much time was spent on the details of the other cars.

First off,
I just wanted to tell you that TransLogic is a great show. Very informative.
I run an automotive website called
We are basically like Facebook vs. YouTube but for The automotive industry.

I was wondering if you would be at all intrested in having a channel featured on our site. I notice you have put videos on Facebook....well this is pretty much the same thing and you attract more and diferent people to watch your vidoes.
You would have complete control of your channel and videos.
Let me know if this would be something you are intrested in and we can also create a button for your show on our main page that will link new viewers straight to your videos.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from you soon and see you on
