Someone loves them some good old classic Hondas. Are these the two best generations of their kind? There’s no doubt about that in regard to the Civic; the fourth generation was the peak Civic experience before it got fatter and dumpier. I absolutely loved these little sedans; in EX form, with the sweet-revving FI engine, this is just about the best small car ever built. The Accord?
It’s a bit of a toss-up between this third generation (CA) and the subsequent fourth generation (CB). I’d have to give the latter the nod, for being a bit more refined and for its all-new 16 valve FI engine, which made a healthy 130 hp in the EX. Now those two, a gen 3 Civic EX and a gen 4 Accord EX; that would really be the peak classic Honda experience.
