Honda Crx

The Honda Crx is an economy car that was marketed in the U.S. in 1976. The curvaceous form has traits of the European rear-engine rear-wheel-drive cars of the 1960s, while the American-originated gas-injected four-cylinder engine provides performance.

Automakers Don’t Make Cars Like This Anymore.

Changing consumer tastes have resulted in many models, some with rabid followings, heading to an early grave. No matter how cool or iconic a car is, dwindling sales often lead an automaker to discontinue the model. One model that’s disappeared, unlikely to return, was the Honda CRX. It departed back in 1991, replaced by the Honda del Sol, though an unofficial rendering from artist Rain Prisk reimagines what the two-seater could look like today.

The likelihood of Honda resurrecting such a model anytime soon is next to nil. Small, two-seat cars from mainstream brands don’t sell well to today’s crossover-crazed consumers. However, the rendering does show that a modern and sleek two-seat Honda could certainly have the appearance chops to pay tribute to the iconic CRX, which was known for being small, affordable, fun to drive, and durable. The CRX’s best traits don’t draw in consumers anymore, who choose utility and functionality over fun and personable.

10-Mile Honda Crx Could Be the Most Pristine Example on Earth

A 1990 Honda CRX billed as the lowest-mileage example anywhere in the world has come up for sale. With just 17 kilometers (10.5 miles) on the odometer that claim is likely to be accurate, at least if we discount the possibility of an undriven one at one of Honda’s museums.
