Honda CRX 3rd Generation (1992-1997)


Like with most Honda models, the Japanese Domestic Market provided greater variety to the 3rd generation CRX buyer by including the choice of a 1.5 D15 SOHC VTEC engine not available to the UK.

There have been quite a few JDM models imported into the UK.

JDM models are also available with the following options that were not offered to the UK market; factory fit LSD, TCS Traction Control, air conditioning.

JDM Models have plastic headlamp lenses rather than the kite marked glass lenses in UK cars, JDM lenses also have a different bulb design which is not compatible with UK bulbs and lights. All JDM cars have body coloured mirrors, door handles and high level rear brake light. On the inside, JDM models have map lights on the door handles and tweeter pods on the doors.

After US and European exports ceased in 1995, the later models of the CRX were JDM only, these are identified by the lack of the small round secondary front lights.
