Honda has received 10 times more orders than it was expecting for its new CR-Z sports coupe in the first month of sales in Japan.

The firm has set itself a monthly sales target of 1000 units for the first few months of production, but orders in March have so far topped 10,000.

Honda said that half of the CR-Z’s buyers were new to the brand.

In total, Honda expects to sell between 400 and 500,000 CR-Z units per year. Sales in the US and Europe will commence later in the spring.

I think UK buyers like their power more.

I like it, though what is the rear wiper where it is? They should have at least taken a look at the rear of a C4.

Wow... ten times the demand! I've heard of double the demand but 10 times is a lot! Congratulations to Honda, I think it's a good looking little car and it'll probably sell well here too, there's a little bit of original Insight about it...

400 to 500000, am I the only one who thinks this is quite a broad margin??

Good. It looks like a really great package and I hope it pays off for them.

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
