Does this count as a review?

Here's another review.
???? ??CR-Z????? - Yahoo! ??

令全球車迷期待的本田CR-Z Hybrid混燃小跑車,上月底才在日本面世,首兩輛水貨新車火速於上周末到港登場。新車在注重環保之餘, 還擁有超乎想像的跑彎功架,駕駛樂趣實在大。
CR-Z是繼豐田IQ之後另一令我十分驚喜的日本車,本田證明了Hybrid車不一定是沉悶的。
車子表板布局有點像法拉利458,中置轉數表兩旁有大量跳字資訊顯示,表板最右方設有三個行車模式掣,甫開 車我已發現CR-Z無論車架和懸掛都很 Firm(車門也特別重),頗有歐洲車風味,而且轉向反應極為靈敏,軚盤路面感充足,車子走起來異常輕巧, 很有昔日CR-X的神髓,感覺很「正」!
在 Econ或Normal模式行車,加速力比普通1.3或1.5公升小車充沛,但談不上是快。按下Sport 掣,引擎聲綫和發力都添上衝勁,馬達和引擎同時發功,感覺像Turbo介入,加速力尤如1.8或2公升房車 ,不算猛,但在香港已夠快。測試車配用CVT波箱(具七段軚盤+/-轉波功能),行車順暢無比,但我深信六速手波會更直接爽快。
Sport模式轉向力度較重,在石澳道快跑,會感到其「快軚」和硬懸掛優點,而且車身重量分布平衡,四輪貼 路性能高超,車頭的指向性好像後驅車般靈活準繩,毫無「推頭」,跑姿美妙和易掌握,絕對稱得上是彎路王。美 中不足是CVT波箱的拖波反應未夠合拍,令車子跑起來有點負累感。
新車裏外設計都很具心思,唯獨車廂塑膠用料未夠優質,後座美其名設有兩座位,但頭部和腳位空間等於零。截稿 時入口商仍未落實售價,不過據知日本當地未連稅約二十二萬港元,雖然可享本地環保車減稅優惠,但最終售價可 能接近三十萬元,價格比福士Scirocco 1.4TSI或者MINI Cooper為貴許多。

A brief translate:
- chassis and suspension are firm
- doors are heavy like European car
- turn in and steering feedback are good
- feels light
- In ECO and Normal mode, it feels a little bit more powerful than 1.3L or 1.5L small car.
- In sport mode, IMA system works like a turbo. Acceleration like a 1.8L or 2.0L sedan
- It is not fast but enough for Hong Kong
- CVT is smooth
- In Sport mode, steering is heavier.
- Weight distribution is great. Excellent grip.
- Turn like a RWD. No under-steer.
- CVT doesn't responsive fast enough. It does a bad job holding gear.
- Interior plastic quality still need improvement
- It may cost more than Mini Copper and Scirocco 1.4TSI in Hong Kong

Personally, I think Hong Kong car section writer writes junk most of the time. But at least there are something to read. Those are some brief translation. I didn't add any personal stuffs.
