1986 Honda CRX Si
The CRX was a sports car that innovated what a cheap compact can be. The CRX wasn’t the most technologically advanced car and it didn’t have the most power. But it was extremely well-built with a compact design and a peppy motor. The CRX resonated with consumers who wanted something that was cheap and fun to drive (via Hagerty).
The Honda CRX SI combined the excellent fuel economy of a compact car and the stellar performance of a sports car. The CRX offered the type of value that consumers wanted at the time. The engine was one of the most well-designed powerplants that Honda ever utilized, which is why you still see the CRX on the roads and still in great shape.
