Canada has a lot of things going for it, including being America's punchline. But laugh at this, in Canada, the CR-Z
is available in a Premium Package for 2012 that comes with heated, black leather seats.
The Premium Package costs over $25,000 loonies but that is basically equally to the USD at this point.The base CR-Z only comes in patriotic red or white paint in Canada. This premium model is only available in black. This likely has something to do with these colours testing well in a focus-group done in a very hip part of Canada (if there is such a thing.)
Now with any luck, American buyers will be able to snatch these up from Canadian customizers who are swapping in Mugen race seats. Or maybe a few premium CR-Zs will get wrecked and the leather interiors will end up in junkyards, ripe for the picking.
There are over 300 Honda dealers in Canada. We think that if enough CR-Z owners in the US got together, one of them would do you guys a great deal on a group buy on some leather seats. Hooray for stain-resistant, nice-wearing, soft leather!
