Honda CRX 1st Generation

The 1.6i16v is easily identifiable by the bonnet bulge on the off-side. The 1.6i16v, also known as the Si, was produced over an 11 month period during 1989 and 1990 and is probably the shortest production run for a Civic model. Understandably, it is available in lower numbers than the more powerful 1.6iVT model.

The 1.6i16v is not without its fans though. Many of whom prefer the characteristics of the non-VTEC engine, saying its round town driving performance is more comfortable and some tuning options do seem more suited to the non-VTEC engine.
