Coupe shootout: CR-Z vs RCZ
You wait ages for a chic little urban coupe, and then two come along at once...

It really is that bad. You're coasting towards a halt in traffic in the CR-Z. You slip the gearbox into neutral. But the traffic starts to move again, so you dip the clutch and engage first gear... but the engine has switched itself off and won't re-engage, leaving you coasting to a halt with traffic blaring around you. To restart the engine, you have to bang the clutch all the way down to the end of its travel, and who drives like that? It is an intensely, painfully irritating flaw that puts the Honda firmly on the back foot in this twin-test.
