Downing’s Del Sol a delightful drive
It was a 2-seater front-engined, front wheel drive, targa (removable metal) top. Based on the Honda Civic platform, the del Sol was the successor to the Honda CR-X. It debuted in 1992 in Japan and the United Kingdom, and 1993 in the United States.
Starting with the 1995 models, Honda dropped the 'Civic' name from the del Sol in the Americas. In Europe, the del Sol tag was dropped in 1995, and the car was known as the new CR-X.
Production and sales ended with the 1997 model in the U.S. and 1998 elsewhere, with a total of about 75,000 vehicles sold in America.
