Honda CRX Overview

The Honda CRX is classed as a sports compact car and was produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Honda.

This car was in production over 2 generations until it was replaced with the CRX del Sol which was an entirely different car even though it still had the CRX name attached. The CRX was known for its good performance, fuel economy and handling. The CRX has some unique styling but they do lack storage space and don't have that much room for the rear passengers.
