Acura RSX
Manufacturer Acura

The Acura RSX is a successful sport coupe that was introduced into the Acura lineup in 2002 to replace the previous model Integra. Owned by the Honda Motor Corporation, the Acura brand name has been Honda’s luxury and near luxury car label in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Hong Kong since March 1986. The Acura RSX has always managed to stay on top in its very competitive sport coupe class by providing excellent performance with pleasing luxury and build quality.

Appreciated by both the car enthusiast and the gear head, the Acura RSX can be seen on the road as both a classy sport coupe or a track-ready canyon carver. The Acura RSX suspension employs MacPherson struts in the front and double-wishbone suspension in the rear. The 155 hp K-series engine proves to have significant potential for tuning, a trait shared with the B-series engines previously employed in the Integra and certain performance-oriented Civic models. Like both the previous Integra and current Honda Civic Si, there is a booming performance aftermarket industry for the car and a large following of faithful RSX owners.
