The ‘90s were a decade filled with changes in popular culture and music. As with any era, cars played a significant role in transitioning styles from the squared-off body styles of the 1980s to the new decade with there even being dreams of flying cars.
While not every vehicle from the ‘90s was a showstopper, there were some iconic vehicles and car brands from the era.
So play your favorite early hip-hop or grunge cassette tapes and reminisce about all the kicking rides that were popular in the ‘90s.
These cars have now become classics, we weren’t ready to hear that either.
A ‘90s classic: the Ford Mustang
No discussion of cars from this decade would be complete without including the Fox Body Ford Mustang. As Hot Cars mentions, part of what made this version of the Mustang so popular was its 5.0-liter V8 engine and fastback style.
So many people loved this car that even Vanilla Ice still has his Mustang from his most well-known music video.
The one brought back from the dead: the Chevy Camaro
Continuing with the cool cars that the ‘90s resurrected, the Chevrolet Camaro enjoyed stunning popularity, according to Hot Cars.
Chevy released the redesigned Z28 in 1993 and brought back the vibe of its muscle car days. The Camaro produced 275 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. It had long, clean lines that became synonymous with many other body styles from the decade.
Which car was the popular kid of the ‘90s?
Who can forget the classic Ford Explorer?
It was the vehicle that ushered in the American love of SUVs. Ford revamped the Bronco of the 1980s and showed the U.S. that drivers no longer had to pick between a car and a truck. The Explorer came in both two-door and four-door models.
If you didn’t have an Explorer in the ‘90s, you knew someone who did. The car is also the unfortunate usher of the SUV rollover, partially attributed to faulty Firestone tires that came equipped on the vehicles.
Zoomin’ around the ‘90s: the Mazda Miata
Even though the Mazda MX-5 Miata wasn’t the most impressive performance sports car, it was still fun to drive. The Miata was inexpensive compared to other sports cars while still delivering thrills.
One of the features that made the car so easy to love was its simple mechanical soft top that you could put down with just a couple of latches. Car and Driver notes that it was so easy to do that a driver could put the top down without having to get out of their seat.
Old reliable: the Honda Accord
Another ever-present vehicle of the ‘90s was the Honda Accord. What makes it particularly interesting is that the decade saw three different generations of the Accord. In a time where sedans fell out of favor, the Accord held strong and sold well in the 1990s.
Hot Cars mentions that the fourth generation Honda Accord from 1990-1992 was one of the best-selling cars of the time. Among its notable changes was its transition from the classic ‘80s pop-up headlight design to a sleek fixed one.
Car and Driver even ranks the Accord as one of the top cars of the 1990s. Even today, the Accord and other cars from the ‘90s are having a resurgence in popularity because they’re now classic, collectible cars.
