First seen at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the CZ2 is a chic convertible that provides sporty open-air driving fun, as well as high-tech information systems to allow new forms of interactive communication between driver and vehicle. Waterproof seat materials use a combination of thick and thin yarns to evoke a traditional basketweave pattern amid its minimalist interior design. Underhood, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative timing and lift Electronic Valve Control system) engine combines with a continuously variable transmission for higher power output, improved fuel economy, and cleaner emissions. The Sport Mode six-speed also allows the driver to operate the transmission as a manual. As with other home-market Mitsu offerings, the CZ2 uses familiar memory stick technology to carry destination data, music files, and other info between auto, home, and office.
