    Fujimi Honda CR-Z Mugen

    I’ve always liked the CR-Z’s styling as a sporty and stylish little hatchback – even if its performance credentials couldn’t quite cash the check its looks wrote.

Starting life in model year 2016, the latest in the Miata lineage retains the usual goofy grin and naturally aspirated four banger motor.
