The original Civic was introduced in 1973 to international acclaim. A decade later the CRX was announced; strictly a reasonably roomy two-seater, it was powered by a 12-valve 1.5-litre engine. The 1985 Si introduced Honda's new Programmed Fuel Injection system. In answer to European criticism about a lack of power, a 16V 1600cc engine arrived here in 1986 giving 125bhp. Ride and handling were also improved. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification, technical data, long term and owner's reports, new model introductions & special conversions. Includes, Si, 1.5, 1.6, CoupT, Spyder.
