106/160HP /    1.5/1.6L / 0-60 mph in 9/7.5s

Like the Civic, with which it shares some components, the Honda CRX has returned in a blaze of glory after a two-year hiatus from our Ten Best list. Also like the Civic, Honda’s two-seater is all new for 1988. Its aerodynamic drag is down and its horsepower up, which means that it’s more of a runner than ever. With 105 horsepower on tap and fourteen-inch, 60-series tires on the pavement, the top-of-the-line CRX Si is one racy roller skate.
The previous 1.6-liter 16V engine became standard on the CRX Mk2. It got a boost of 5 horsepower to compensate for the 20 kg increase of kerb weight, so performance remained unchanged. Top of the range was powered by Honda's new B16A 1.6-liter DOHC VTEC engine. This was the second application of the soon-to-be-famous VTEC variable valve timing and lift technology (the first one was Integra), and the first time overseas customers had a taste of it (because the VTEC Integra was not exported). Rev it to 7600 rpm, the VTEC engine produced 150 horsepower, enabling 130 mph and 0-60 in 7.5 seconds.
