So, the Honda CR-Z is now officially available in our market. Aside from the competitive pricing, one of the most significant things about this car is that it can be had in two special editions: the Modulo Edition and the Mugen Edition. Now, we'll admit right here that we're big fans of Honda's main tuning arm, Mugen. Imagine our delight when Honda Cars Philippines announced that the CR-Z would be sold in Mugen guise, priced at P1.86 million for the manual and P1.95 million for the CVT.
Quite expensive, considering that the standard CR-Z variant costs just P1.39 million. What exactly did Mugen install on the CR-Z to jack up its pricing this high? Let's see the list:
* Mugen under-spoiler set;
* Mugen front grille;
* Mugen wing-type tailgate spoiler;
* Mugen 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels;
* Mugen exhaust system;
* Mugen LED daytime running lights;
* Mugen rear fog lights;
* Mugen carbon-fiber mirror cover;
* Mugen shift knob (for the manual transmission);
* Mugen floor mats; and
* Mugen emblems
The engine remains stock, in case you're wondering.
So, are these Mugen bits enough to make you want to shell out more for the CR-Z Mugen Edition?
