In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:

Improving on its peaky predecessor, a front engine/front drive sports hatchback, the third generation CR-X was introduced in February 1992. In addition to adding "del Sol" to its name, this model also greatly changed the nature of the CR-X. This fashionable open-top 2-seater features distinctive styling. Although the front engine/front drive layout remains unchanged, various touches give it a mid-engined appearance. A highlight is the electrically-operated power roof. It has an ingeniously designed mechanism: When the top is opened, the trunk rises and the roof slides under it to the rear, then the trunk lowers back to its original position. Some models are equipped with a manual roof. The two engine options are the 1.6-liter SOHC in-line 4-cylinder Model D16A (128 hp at 6,600 rpm and 108 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm) and the Civic's Model B16A (168 hp at 7,800 rpm [153 hp with the automatic transmission] and 116 lb-ft at 7,300 rpm). Both are VTEC engines, available with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Double wishbone front and rear suspension is combined with front disc brakes in all models. The D16A engine is paired with rear drum brakes; the B16A, with rear disc brakes. The del Sol's first front fascia featured distinctively shaped quad headlamps, but an October 1995 restyling reduced that number to two. Also changed were the line's model names: the model with the D16A engine was the VXi before the change but VGi after. The ride is sporty, but partially because of the open top, body rigidity is less than the Civic's - a shortcoming that becomes noticeable during aggressive driving. Nevertheless, the 168 hp VTEC engine delivers a comfortable drive and outstanding power.
