Honda has launched the refreshed of the 2013 Honda CR-Z dropped at the Paris Motor Show. The improved features include updated sheetmetal, a new lithium-ion battery pack, more power and, perhaps most importantly, a boost button.

The official statement describes it as the Plus Sport.

Exterior: the new changes include, the new CR-Z gets a new front bumper and a revised grille that no longer includes horizontal trim bars. The CR-Z also gets LED daytime running lights, and a revised rear fascia.

Interior: The 2013 CR-Z’s cabin has been redesigned with updated seat and door lining material, and new door pockets. Red leather stitching on the steering wheel, gear knob, seats, and door trim are also available.

Engine: it delivers extra power due to the changes to the 1.5-liter four-pot’s variable valve timing system and ECU. Generating a power of 135 horse power and 140 lb-ft of torque, up from 122 hp and 128 lb-ft of torque provided by the U.S.-spec 2012 CR-Z. There is also a change from a nickel-metal hybrid (NI-MH) battery to lithium ion. Honda says the added power doesn’t adversely affect fuel economy. The vehicle now sprints from 0-62 mph 9.0 seconds from the previous 9.7 seconds. Though it has also been tested that the six-speed manual transmission can deliver 0-60 mph in 8.4 seconds.

Honda has also added a KERS-like boost button to the 2013 CR-Z. The new boost system is available when the battery is more than 50 percent charged by hitting the S+ button on the steering wheel. The system then provides up to 10 seconds of boost once the accelerator is mashed to the floor. Needless to say, we expect the new S+ system to play a pivotal role in the next model, deigns of which are already in progress.

The update regarding the cars launch in the US market has not been announced yet.
