The U.S. model CRX (sometimes called a "Rex") was made from 1984 to 1991. The first generation was from 1984 to 1987, the second from 1988 to 1991. The Del Sol was known as the CR-X in all markets other than North America.
In 1984 the CRX was only available carburated and in two trim packages, the 1.3 and the base. The 1.3 had a SOHC 8V 1.3L inline four and a manual transmission. The base model had a SOHC 12V 1.5L inline four and was available with a manual or an automatic transmission. Power ratings were 55hp and 72hp respectivly. All models were equiped with CVCC.
In 1985 the Si became available with a power sunroof standard and a 1.5L fuel injected 12V inline four, an automatic transmission was not offered. The 1.3 became the HF and the base became the DX, both remained carburated. All carburated models were equiped with CVCC.
In 1986 and 1987 the CRX remained unchanged except for minor styling updates.
In 1988 the second generation was introduced. The DX again became the base model, and all models were fuel injected. The Hf was updated with a 1.5L SOHC 12V, the DX recieved a 1.5L SOHC 16V, and the Si a 1.6L SOHC 16V.
1989 saw door mounted seatbelts on the base and the Si.
In 1990 all models now recieved door mounted seatbelts and more side impact crash protection. The Si has rear disck brakes as standard.
1991 was the final year for the CRX in the United States, there were no major changes from 1990.

Civic Renaissance Type-X
Civic Renaissance Model-X
has been known to be called
Civic Renaissance eXperiment

Pronounced "see, are, ex"
88 hf... hondas earlier shot at a hybrid type... wieght of only 1800lbs. 1800lbs - 200lbs weight reduction...then adding a nimble b16 and supercharger, in a 1/4 mile time you run a 11.784 according to a 1/4mile calculating program.... so think twice about how fast those cars really are. by the way it takes only 6-7,000 grand to do that... compared to some v-8s and what not
maybe you should of told that guy with the 2003 viper your stock looking crx was runnin a 10.8 1/4 mile before you ran off with his pink slip.
Johnny had a CRX.
Bobby had a Ducatti.
Johnny ran over Bobby's Ducatti.
I guess Bobby won't be racing Johnny after all.
Don't put down the CRX foo!

thats a sick burner, was that done by a Crx
Japanese hatchback driven by Lebanese-Australian gentlemen in the western regions of Sydney. Kilowatt and/or subwoofa enhanced models generally referred to as full sick.
A shitty honda from back in the day. People think that they are cool because they can be modded to go "fast", but at the end of the day they are still hondas with sweet cloth seats and no AC (lest the power required to run said AC should diminish the power of their muscle I4).
CRX owner: "Dood, my 1986 CRX can whoop your your Z4! I have a turbo the size of a large apple, and lots of stickers, so I know I'll win!"
Z4 owner: *rolls eyes and pulls several car lengths away, not even really trying to race in the first place*
CRX owner: "Damn...........I need more stickers."
