Additional leaked CR-Z catalog pages reveal a bit more info

HNSXR has once again pointed us to some more images that have found their way to the web in Japan, revealing a few more details regarding the upcoming CR-Z hybrid coupe. In one of the scans it appears that the curb weight for the 6MT version starts at 1130kg (2491lbs) and the CVT version starts at 1160kg (2557 lb) with the CVT. According to HNSXR, a "fully optioned" CVT-equipped CR-Z weighs about 1180kg (2601 lb). We can also see the wheel and tire size (195/55R-16).

The weight figures are better than the 1200+ kg figures that were originally rumored, so that's definitely some good news.

UPDATE: According to another one of our Japanese readers, one of these pages confirms something that we were already pretty sure about, and that's the suspension configuration. Up front, it's MacPherson struts and (as I reported based upon the 2009 Concept at the Tokyo Motor Show), the rear is torsion beam.
