14: Honda Civic Del-Sol
You can’t say that Honda didn’t try to innovate during the ’90s, but the Del-Sol was taking things a bit too far. The Honda-themed “roadster” was designed to entice younger buyers, but being based on the Civic platform, it wasn’t going to win any races. Enthusiasts squealed at the lack of power or refinement, and there was no passenger seating. The Del-Sol just didn’t latch on with customers, the same problem that Toyota had with the Paseo.
Surprisingly enough, the Del-Sol has become a bit of a collector’s item 20 years later. Resale values for the car have started to spring up and the overall design of the car is iconic. Honda has since sold the S2000, which was a slightly more appealing roadster. Nevertheless, most drivers are trying to forget that the Del-Sol was even a thing.
