Just a day after Honda released its second refreshed model for the 2016 Honda CR-Z, Honda released an official line of accessories by Modulo.
If you buy and own a Honda CR-Z in the United States, with so few of them motoring around, you already pretty much stand out from the crowd. But if you want to stand out even further and accessorize your CR-Z with what Honda calls S-Style, they’ve released an official line of Modulo accessories. Hot ticket items include a roof-mounted tailgate spoiler, a bumper garnish as well as a front lower spoiler, a special set of 17″ alloys and a sports suspension that lowers the CR-Z by 10 mm and adds five levels of firmness to the dampers. Additionally, they’ve released a pretty cool 360-degree configurator that you can try out for yourself. Click here to check that out.
If you’re wondering what exactly Modulo is, in America we have Honda, then Honda Accessories and finally Honda Factory Performance. Each level of accessories increases in price, exclusivity and sportiness. For Japan they have Honda, then Honda Access and Honda Access Modulo with the same logic behind their accessory lines.
Up front, the front lower lip adds a bit of aero and style and the bumper garnish adds what Honda calls, ” a sophisticated adult atmosphere.” We think that means it makes the front end look a bit more mature. There’s an option to add LED foglights as well as a bit of fog light garnish. The pillar garnishes, door mirror covers and tailgate garnishes add a bit of color matched-ness to the entire profile. The 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels we imagine are lighter than the standard 17-inch alloys and should fill up the wheel well quite nicely. The big piece that grabs your attention if you do option out for one is that massive tailgate spoiler. Whether or not it actually helps aerodynamically is up to question but it looks fantastic. Honda has taken inspiration from its GT race cars and it shows. Since it’s mounted pretty much close to the roof, your rear view isn’t blocked much.
Believe it or not, there’s a niche Honda CR-Z owner who’d love to own these accessories. It’s the same logic with how some women buy the most expensive purses. Sometimes that purse from Target just won’t do. They have to have the best so they choose a Louis Vuitton purse. When it comes to Honda accessories, only HFP or Modulo will do.
