1. Honda CRX
The market for affordable performance models in the early `80s was almost fully dominated by Japanese brands and Honda CRX is the perfect example as one of the most memorable cars from that era. Built from 1983 to 1991, the CRX was based on the Civic but with the lower and sportier body and with only two seats. Since it was light, nimble and with precise steering, the CRX was a true sports car although with front-wheel drive and up to 140 hp.
The biggest selling points of this model were extremely light body, as the whole car weighed 1,800 pounds and a high revving four-cylinder engine. Honda never repeated the success of the CRX and the car is still remembered by enthusiasts as a blast to drive.
