    Hey

    Im getting a great deal on a 95 civic CX hatch, I havent been able to look at it but i was wondering if this a ok Trim model?.Because when i think CX and DX i think of an automatic cheaply made honda. But this is a 5 speed, so im guessing it comes with a tach ( i know stupid!) but i would like some info on this car. I know its cheaper but, would i have to upgrade the supension and stuff like lets say on a CRX HF where u gota do almost the hole front supension and change the hubs and spindels? or is good to go? and later on i can add aftermarket supension and all that crap :D

    that is the best trim along with the vx since they are light "2094lbs" and they don't come with a tach. You have to put in a ex tach which is pretty cheap. I am currently looking for the same exact trim model in white and I am having a tough time.

    Hey man, I'm currently in the same situation. I have a '95 civic hb CX (stick) that's on hold for me for 2g's. It doesn't run right now, but I'm planning on dropping in a b18c1 asap. CX's are light and are the way to go.

    Get an EX Gauge cluster with a tach. It plugs right in with no modifications needed.

    the ex cluster plugs right in, keep in mind that the odometer must be swapped out. the specs i found under articles
    1992 Honda Civic Hatchback Specifications
    CX hatchback: 2094lbs.
    VX hatchback: 2094lbs.
    DX hatchback: 2178lbs.
    Si hatchback: 2326lbs

    Key Differences:
    *The CX and VX have a 10-gallon tank, while the DX and Si have the 11.9-gallon tank.

    *Si and DX have a Rear wiper/washer

    *Si and Dx have more tar for increased quietness in cabin.

    *Si and Dx have side moldings and rear cargo cover standard.

    *Si came with power mirrors, power sun roof.

    *Si came with rear disc brakes, while DX, VX, CX came with rear drums.

    *Si came with front, rear sway bars standard.

    Conclusion:

    Keep in mind these cars were weighed in stock trim. This means no air conditioning or radio because it was not a standard option in any vehicle. The VX and Si were the only hatchbacks to come with 2 mirrors and a tachometer as standard equipment. For wheels, the VX came with 9lb thirteen-inch alloy wheels while the CX and DX had thirteen inch steel wheels. The Si had the heaviest wheels coming with fourteen inch steel wheels with hubcaps.

    So with this in mind, which hatchback is the best for a motor swap? Well, its widely accepted that the VX makes the best vehicle for a swap because its lightweight, has a passenger side mirror, has a tachometer, and is always pre-wired for VTEC. However, it really depends on what type of car you want to start with. For the best handling car in stock trim, the Si hatchback will be the best. Front/Rear sway bars along with rear disc brakes make for a nice package, despite its heaviness. In the end it’s a compromise, make your decision accordingly.
    Hopefully this will help clear up any confusion about the options on these hatchbacks and their differences. Please note that the specifications didn’t really change between the years of 1992 through 1995 so most information listed here holds true for all 5th Generation hatchbacks.
