Default Are old CRX's laughable now? 1988-1992?

I really wanna get the old CRX, the hatchback (not the del sol, you know the later convertible one) with the VTEC option.


I think it looks great even now, and better looking than the del sol, i already have a 2007 Toyota Yaris but im thinking of selling it and going old school...should i? Or is this car way to old and embarrassing now?

Replies greatly appreciated..

The CRX wasn't available with the high revving 160hp B16 engine in the USA (like the Del Sol Vtec had) if that's what you're after. If you want a CRX with that B16 you'd have to find one that has had an engine swap done or one that came from Japan (and would be right-hand drive...). Otherwise the most powerful CRX available in the USA had 127hp and isn't really very fast with that engine.

They're fun little cars because they're so light and chuckable, but technology-wise and safety-wise newer cars have advanced quite a bit since the CRX was around. I personally like light, small, sharp handling cars but they're not for everyone. The CRX will seem extremely small and low next to a typical 4-door sedan in 2010. In fact, it will seem low and small next to your Yaris.
