1989 Honda Civic Overview

Based on 45 reviews
There were few changes in the 1989 Honda Civic lineup. Perhaps the phrase, "why mess with a good thing," was ringing in the ears of the Honda executives.
One notable change was that the Civic Si hatchback was re-created and now came with a moon roof and the wicked CRX Si engine which this year was increased to 108 hp.
In fact, it's that engine that had people abuzz, and even Hot Rod magazine — of all places — carried a big piece about the '89 Civic, saying that it "combines the intimidation factor of a rusty Yugo with the styling flair of a rubber doorstop." Of course, they then went on to explain how the adapted 487 hp engine dropped in by racing legend, Larry Widmer.
It seemed that the Civics had certainly come of age, and were being modified by a loyal crowd of auto enthusiasts to become "stealth" muscle cars.
