Honda Civic CRX Si
The Honda CR-X, originally launched as the Honda Ballade Sports CR-X in Japan, was a compact sports car manufactured by Honda. Sold in some regions outside of Japan as the Honda Civic CR-X, the name "CR-X" is an acronym for "Civic Renaissance model X." The Honda Civic CR-X was first produced in 1983 for the 1984 model year and was a lightweight sport hatchback, with room for two passengers in the American market and four seats in the European ones.
Redesigned in 1987 and produced until 1992, the CR-X was renowned for its performance (specifically the US performance model the Si), nimble handling, and good fuel economy. Even the original 1.3 litre car and the later American-market CR-X HF model could get as much as 50 mpg, preceding the advent of gas-electric hybrids on the market, and at no price premium over the base model.
The CR-X could be equipped with an exotic "Cyber Glass" roof, extending from the top of the windshield all the way back to the hatch opening, which however was a rather rare option. As for the Japanese Si and European 16v models, they sported a powerful 1.6 litre dual overhead camshaft engine generating 130 HP.
In 1992, the CR-X was superseded by the Honda Civic Del Sol, also known as the CR-X Del Sol in some markets. Despite being a rather different car, many enthusiasts consider it the third generation CR-X. Rumours of the CR-X comeback have been circulating since the 1990s, though nothing officially declared by Honda.
The Civic CR-X was Motor Trends Import Car of the Year for 1984 and featured on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1985. The redesigned CR-X was also on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1988, and the CR-X Si was Motor Trends Import Car of the Year for 1988.
