1984 Honda Civic Overview

The 1984 Honda Civic brings in the third generation of the popular little cars with a host of changes — including a new trim called the CRX, which eventually earned its own ranking. (See CarGuru's Civic CRX pages).

The car became about five inches longer, making the Civic wagons and Civic sedans just about the same wheelbase length as the Accord. The suspension had also been redesigned for a better ride and to offer better space efficiency. Transmission choices remained untouched with a 4-speed being the default and a 5-speed and automatic transmission offered as options.

But to power lovers, it was the engine change that made a difference (although to be honest, this is still a little Civic and not a race car. Except on the base model hatchbacks, the standard engine now was a 1.5 litre, 12 valve that produced 76 hp. The base model was upgraded as well, but only to a 60 hp 1.3 liter engine.

Drivers find it generally reliable as a second family car, still enjoy its gas mileage, and in general are very happy with their very inexpensive purchase.
