7 most popular tuner cars for gear heads
Honda Civic LX coupe
Tradition requires that Honda's Civic lead off this list. It was the prominent tuner car in the 1990s and remains highly popular today.
"What can I say about the Civic except what can't be done to it?" Gonzalez says. "There isn't a (modification) it hasn't seen. This car in all of its versions -- coupe, hatchback and sedan -- will always be a favorite of tuners."
In the Civic, Honda has created something for nearly everyone. The range of models is astounding. That, as well as its affordable pricing, is what has attracted tuners for more than 20 years. Delivering power to most current Civics is a 140-horsepower, 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine. Sending engine output to the front wheels falls to either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.
