In-game description

"The CVCC engine further improved; the sporty model of the 2nd generation Civic."

Known in Honda circles as the "Super Civic," the second-generation compact front-wheel-drive car was better in every way than its predecessor. The new 3- and 5-door hatchbacks were dramatically bigger than the original model, with an overall length of 152.3 inches, width of 62.2 inches and height of 53.1 inches. This in turn accounted for a spacious interior. Making things even roomier were a 4-door sedan and 5-door wagon that were added to the mix in 1980. Power came from either a 1.3-liter or 1.5-liter SOHC inline-4.

The sportiest in the line was the 3-door 1500 CX hatchback, the spiritual successor to the 1200RS of the first-generation Civic. The CX possessed a long list of exclusive parts that set it apart from the normal 1500; the most significant of these was the engine. Sitting beneath the hood of the CX was Honda's 1.5-liter SOHC inline-4 based on the first-gen Civic's low-emission CVCC. This reliable motor came mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and produced 83 HP and 88.9 ft-lb of torque. That it could still pass the strict exhaust restrictions of its day while turning out this much power was nothing short of incredible, and the sporty nature and overall packaging of the Civic CX proved a winning formula with all enthusiasts, from the young weekend racer to the suburbanities who occasionally liked to stomp their right foot down.
