Vendor Condition Report

Overall: 98 / 135


Bodywork: Glass:
Paint: Chrome:


The CRX Coupe was sold from new in only three distinctive colours: Rio Red, Blade Silver Metallic and Polar White. They are high performance sports cars but retain some of the more practical aspects of a hatchback. It is one of the most aerodynamic cars in its class - designed to slip through the air with the greatest of ease, minimising wind resistance and maximising fuel economy - stylish looking even when standing still.


Door-cards: Carpets:
Seating: Headlining:
Dashboard: Boot:


The flamboyant nature of the CRX is aptly demonstrated by the superb range of equipment that comes as standard to this thoroughbred. Clearly designed around the needs of the driver from the reclining front bucket seats with headrests, finished in black cloth upholstery and CRX logo, and folding emergency rear seat; completing the Coupe's sporting theme.


Components: Starting:
Appearance: Running:


Developed from Formula One experience this Coupe is fitted with a D16A - 16 valve engine benefiting from Honda's own Programmed Fuel Injection System [PGM - F1] A stainless steel exhaust system gives a more sporting exhaust note.


Gears: Drive-shaft:


Many front wheel drive cars equipped with powerful engines suffer from torque steer; this is eliminated from the CRX by fitting two equal length drive shafts. The gearbox benefits from synchromesh on all five forward gears making driving always a pleasure.

Running Gear

Axles: Chassis:
Suspension: Bearings:
Brakes: Wheels/Tyres:


You benefit from the 4-wheel Double Wishbone Suspension System and Anti-Lock Braking System providing greater control, comfort and safety; correct tyres and pressures are essential. All brake discs replaced in 2016.


Minor: Major:


No faults showing from the instrumentation, warning lights, operation of electrical door mirrors or windows etc. unfortunately the original radio/cassette replaced. When summer is upon us the unique ‘tilt and slide' electric sunroof; makes driving enjoyable.

Vehicle History


UK supplied new. The odometer is showing just over 46,000 miles appears to be correct, confirmed by the part history file and period of storage. The CRX is becoming increasingly rare, looks stunning in Polar White and it is now nearly 30 years since rolling off the production line - improving and looking after the vehicle should seriously increase its value.
