The 2-door CRX, a hatchback variant, ran with a 12-valve 1.5-liter four that developed 78 horsepower or an 8-valve engine that developed less power, but returned record fuel economy figures.
CRX established the long hood/stubby deck look that defined Civic coupes for a decade. More significantly, it suggested that Honda created fun as well as transportation. The car was a sales success and spawned other, sportier cars.
