Trim packages offered for the ’95 model year include the DX, CX, Si, and EX. All of these trim levels are offered in either coupes or sedan body styles. DX models really are the basic level imaginable. No power windows, locks, or AC are present on any DX model and they have only the most minimalist of interiors. Overall a DX model won’t impress anybody too much, but it is the reliability that make even these packages so popular. One highlight is that they do have a very capable stereo system that lasts over time. Moving up to something a little more luxurious is the CX model which offers full power accessories. Other optional features for CXs are CD/Cassette players, leather wrapped steering wheels and shift knobs, power adjustable driver seats, sun roofs, and more interior fabrics to choose from.
