Should be around the same, unless you're talking about about Swift Sport, which is a bit more powerful. Don't know about the CR-Z but Swift's handling is pretty good. You certainly won't be afraid to throw it around a corner at high speed.

Both can go up to 180km/h, but CR-Z close to semput already, same like Swift. Swift's steering becomes worryingly light at 150 km/h and above (lack of downforce maybe?).

If you are comparing with Suzuki Swift Sports, Swift Sports is way more powerful as it can lap Sepang a good 10 seconds faster with stock engine. But interior and quality wise, CRZ is much better with low down seating positions, bucket seats and a fancy dashboard.
As for chasis, swift sports does feel floaty at high speeds and requires a lot of modification in alignment to make it stable going into corners. CRZ doesn't feel as floaty although it needs better tyres going into high g corners.

I would go for CR-Z, drives like a 1.8...even got quite an impressive record in Sepang Best lap time...slightly slower than a FD2R if
I didn't remember wrongly...design wise also look better...lots of modification parts for Honda..

you're so polite, "slightly slower" hahaha. its actually much slower than a FD2R. 2 seconds is very long on a race track.. even more so when its close to 20.

2 very different cars. its like comparing an apple to an orange and ask which tastes better :stupid:

the FD2R on average is in the range of 2:30 - 2:40's while CRZ is on the high 2:50's, a 10-20 second gap is not just slightly slower

Haha! I don't quite remember how many seconds lower but not less than 10 seconds. Just put slightly will be safe comment LOL!

Power wise already very different. But for CR-Z record, better than expected.

Thanks bro!

I don't think they are that different. Power and handling would be around the same I think although CR-Z's close gear ratio and low height would make it 'sportier' of the two. He did ask in terms of strictly performance, not looks, driveability or practicality so I think it's a fair comparison.

hahahaha....for me, the look of the CRZ hints performance.......
On the other hand, Proton Tiara look would be of zero performance......

Anyway, there are some equally exciting cars out there in terms of performance...if you dont mind them as 2nd hand cars.

I would say both cars have their pros and cons on different areas.. as for performance wise, both are about the same.. i owned a swift an it's handling is good as stock compared to other same class cars eg myvi(i dun discriminate myvi as i own one too), the swift still feels vy stable when i'm doing 170km/h++ on highway.. only when 150km/h take a curve highway the car will feel like it's going to be thrown off the road on gear 3.. the rest for me is ok.. CRZ on the other hand it's a sports car platform with it's outlook.. so no matter what, it looks cool.. but haven have a chance to test drive that car yet.. but you are mentioning swift sport here which i did not own and drive one before, so i can't comment too much but i only can tell you i'm only driving swift 1.5A with and "E-throttle" custom mod in it.. and 16" rims.. other than that were stocks.. So i guess the swift sport should be way better as it's 1.6 high compression engine be it Manual/Auto.. it's just handles better as it comes with harder shocks and faster than 1.5 swift ON STOCK..

IMHO you just need to test drive both cars and decide yourself .
The CR-Z is heavier but it's more powerful .
The Swift is lighter , hence you feel its more powerful than the CR-Z .
For comfort & stability , i myself prefer the CR-Z .
But keep in mind , maintenance wise , CR-Z is more expensive .
It's a hybrid , which means , i think after 4-5 yrs , u need to replace the batt & etc etc which can amount to 7-8k .
So go figure :)
Just my 2cents :)
