The Acura RSX is a two-door sport hatchback. Replacing the Integra coupe, the RSX served as entry-level car Acura from 2002 until 2006, when the brand decided to move itself more upscale and the car no longer fit into the scheme of the company. However, as a used car, the two versions of the Acura RSX should appeal to consumers desiring a reasonably affordable car that offers a sporty coupe and performance accessible. Like most Acura vehicles, the Acura RSX boasts a high level of refinement and a reputation for above average reliability, competitive pricing and strong resale value.

A four-cylinder was standard soft revolutions, and was mated to a five-speed manual transmission or five-speed automatic.
The Acura RSX Type- S adds an in-dash changer for six CDs, standard leather seats, 17-inch wheels, a firmer suspension tuning and more powerful brakes. The Type- S also had a four-cylinder engine tuned to produce additional horsepower. The Acura RSX six-speed manual is the only transmission option.
Acura RSX Engine
The Base RSX initially produced 160 horsepower, but the new horsepower ratings in SAE 2006 changed the number to 155. Leather seats was the only option. The design of four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive-drive, the Acura RSX has better fuel economy than many other sports hatchbacks and coupes. The occupants of the front seats will be comfortable, but the adults sitting in the rear is lacking in headroom. The rear seat is split 60/40 and can be lowered to increase the cargo capacity.
