Honda Civic 4th Generation

The 4th generation 1.6i16v Civic is great performer and the first true Hot Hatch from Honda. In manufacture for just 11 months the 1.6i16v is probably rarer than the 1.6iVT and certainly rarer than the similarly powered and specced CRX 1.6i16v.

Standard equipment on the 1.6i16v is; sports seats, electric wing mirrors, windows and electric slide glass sunroof, body colour door handles and mirrors.

The 1.6i16v is easily identifiable by the bonnet bulge at the front and the twin exhaust exit at the rear.

Power assisted steering was provided as an option by Honda, it is not known how many cars this was taken up on.
