The JDM EG6
The JDM eg6, is one of the most legendary cars that have been put into production for the JDM community. Its understated and underestimated performance has proven to be a highly attractive prospect to people looking for a hot hatchback.
The EG6 is a Honda civic made in the mid 90’s and was way ahead of its time. Prized and loved by many JDM Cars enthusiasts, it’s a car that has a huge fan base. Check out this video below to see why!
There are several types of eg6 civic. However these can fall into two categories. A EG6 JDM spec, and a non JDM EG6. Visually these are identical (except your JDM EG6 might have some awesome JDM stickers and accessories with it). However the difference lies in the engine, the JDM B16 engine comes with slightly more HP than the other models (trust them to keep all the cool stuff in Japan!). While the performance is only a slight increase, the JDM EG6 costs allot more than the exported models, purely because they are so rare and are now collector’s items.
The EG6 JDM Style
The EG6 styling was way ahead of its time. Despite being designed in the 90’s it still fits in and looks modern in today world. The EG6 JDM and other EG’s have a few subtle styling differences. For example the spoiler was slightly bigger, ride was slightly lower, and came with super hot front and back splitters on the fenders. These alone cost a fortune for good condition originals.
If you can get your hands on a good condition EG6 id personally recommend going for it. The b16 engines are practically bulletproof, and can go well for 150k miles if properly maintained. Trust Honda to make a engine this good – did you know that Honda in all of its time making cars has NEVER has a VTEC engine returned to them for a manufacturing fault? Not one. Ever. Crazy huh.
Imagine driving your civic eg6 JDM spec beast down the road blasting past anyone that decides you’re only in a Honda… and the looks on their faces when you blast past them! Check out these images of some prime examples of a JDM EG6.
If your computer is still functioning after you drooling all over the keyboard from those pictures, I’m glad you’re still with us… as you can see they are one of the most attractive cars from the 90’s. How many other cars can boast to have that level of design from that era? Not many that’s for sure!
But remember this . When you’re driving a JDM Honda eg6 you have to treat it with respect, it’s a rare car these days to have in good condition. A classic, don’t be a tool and crash it racing some euro trash car, make sure the races are worth your while
A Honda eg6 JDM OEM good condition car is one of the best hot hatches available today – not bad for car made in the mid 90’s. Don’t be fooled by imitations and make sure your next car is a Honda civic eg6 JDM spec monster.
