Honda's updated CR-Z sports hybrid has reared its head in Paris this week, after a surprise appearance at last week's Indonesia Motor Show.

Along with subtle styling tweaks, fans were promised a light power boost for the 2013 model year, and a light boost is just what the updated CR-Z brings.

This update sees the little petrol-electric hybrid coupe's combined output increased to 101kW and 190Nm of torque in six-speed manual form - an improvement of 10kW and 16Nm.

The power boost comes courtesy of upgrades to the 1.5 litre petrol engine, and a new lithium-ion battery pack - replacing the previous version's nickel-metal hydride unit.

Tweaks to the petrol engine include an upgraded variable valve timing system and a reprogrammed engine control unit.

The higher output sees the CR-Z's acceleration improved, in UK-market form at least, to 9.1 seconds - cutting around six tenths of a second off the previous model's time.

Fuel consumption figures remain unchanged, with the European models listing fuel use at 5.0 l/100km.

The purpose of the mystery S+ button has also been revealed: when the CR-Z's battery is at more than 50 percent of charge, the S+ button will deliver a 10-second burst of stonger acceleration.

Styling updates bring a number of subtle changes, including a redesigned front fascia, HID headlights with LED daytime running lights, and new foglights.

 

Australia

Watch for the updated CR-Z to make its Australian debut in the first half of 2013.
