Default "ek" model differences

yes i searched and i couldn't find results so dont jump down my throat...

between 96-00 there were the CX, DX, HX, LX, EX, and SI model civics

CX = ???? base model, i dont know the specifics between the cx and the dx
DX = ????
HX = vtec-e motor, optional cvt tranny, alloy wheels, coupe only, unpainted door handles/side molding/mirrors
LX = sedan only, no vtec
EX = SOHC VTEC, power everything, moon roof, keyless entry, painted everying except sideskirts
SI = EX + DOHC VTEC b16a2, different suspension, alloys, rear discs, bigger sway bars, painted everything including sideskirts

what's unpainted on the LX, and what the hell is the difference between the CX and DX? and if my memory serves me correct, the HX didn't have painted license plate trim prior to 99, but post 99 they did. is this correct?

Si has the hollow headrests too. Something the EX didn't have. in Canada they also came with heated mirrors. And I THINK that it came with a front lip the EX didn't come with. Not sure on that one.

CX was only for hatchbacks though. The DX and CX come with the d16y7 engine and so does the LX. I think CX came with less sound deadening material to save weight for better fuel economy. I don't think it had power steering or abs.

I think 98 and up did have the rear hatch wiper and 96-97 did not have one. That is on the Cx/Dx.

My 97 dx came with the rear hatch wiper, AC, and no PS all from the dealer. Unpainted door handles/mirrors/side skirts. D16y7 with a manual tranny.

CX has an unpainted rear spoiler as well.

I have a cx. No AC, no power anything, no rear wiper. I LOVE IT. I think the ignition is a dealer option also. Mine came w/ a pull start.


(I was wondering why my spoiler wasn't painted. Thanks Ricey. Now I know)

that is correct. the 96-97 cx did not come with a rear wiper.. (so if you want the jdm look, get a 96 cx hatch.. heheh) the cx also came with an ugly hatch cover witha brakelight.. the dx.. had an actual wing with a LED. DX hatches also came with power steering, but AC was still an option cx came with a radio option, no tape/cd combo.. dx's did.

DX spoilers did not come with any LEDs. Theyre just a plain old single bulb. I've replaced them before.
