The Acura Rsx

The new RSX is somewhat familiar as a Integra. The current version has a 160 or a 200 horsepower four-cylinder powerplant, the latter coming standard in the S. The more powerful engine its horses partly through an valve timing technology, shifts into high mode at 6,000 rpm. The is a kick in the pants similar to of a turbocharger suddenly spooling up.

The news is that the RSX has superb and strong acceleration, especially if you are running the engine fast, but it is to shift and to manage than other sports cars. The bad is that the engine is loud and not unlike the early Neon and that makes you want to going up to the speeds where the RSX does its stuff. In everyday sprints that run up to 6,000 rpm are relatively rare.

Because of the way the engine scales up to and also because of the ease of we recommend the manual over the though both get similar gas The Type S has a six-speed manual, but not a good enough reason to buy one a base RSX.

At high even the top gear lets the run fast, bringing a great of noise into the cabin. At speeds, the engine is quieter. The is closely spaced, which can make choosing a gear difficult.

Handling is excellent, the RSX whipping around turns almost no body roll, steering, and absolutely no sense of The tight steering helps to get the most out of the RSX’s turning It can deal with bumps and as well, unlike some suspensions we could mention TT, anyone?).

The only drawback is almost in front wheel drive while the wheel doesn’t to one side when you hit the gas, you do some steering ability as the tires are asked to do two things at This usually is not a problem.

The to brand the RSX as an Acura instead of a is odd when you consider the ride, in the Type S at least is compromised to you outstanding handling. Thus, the luxury car name, the RSX Type S has a firm ride that you feel, albeit cushioned, bump and road imperfection.

The Acura label does to the amenities, at least. The climate uses round vents reduce noise and can easily be and the chrome and black instrument is very tastefully done for a yet somewhat elegant look. It BMW-blandness and Audi TT-garishness.

At the Type S’ black-on-white have red backlighting, with circles outlining the speedometer and tachometer. The result is surprisingly and sporty. The only distractions are the whose red numbers bring up a that a warning light is on, and the which goes up to 160 mph and uses 270 degrees of a circle to do it.

The result is that the speeds people spend most of time at are all compressed into a small space.

The controls are all to use, including the sensibly climate control and stereo. The climate control uses knobs, with buttons in the making them easy to use being distracting.

The cruise is activated by a button on the dash, but its setting even after you the engine. The cruise buttons are on the wheel,and are very large to them easier to use.

Visibility is compromised by the large pillars, which can make and backing up an adventure, while use of the RSX is hampered by massive, heavy and a seat belt which not adjust up or down, and is placed too far to be easily reached.

Our Type S under $24,000, including a moonroof, alloy wheels, wipers, power locks, and windows, leather, an air filter, CD/cassette, ABS, and cruise If you’re really into and find that most cars can’t whip turns as fast as you want to, that might be a very deal.

If acceleration is your game and you mind a little forced the Dodge SRT-4, AWD Subaru Mitsubishi Evo, and other fast cars might be to the point, while the Mustang is in the brute-force straight-line acceleration The SRT-4 in particular offers acceleration with the lowest in the segment, using the proven ACR as a base. But if you like them sporty, high-revving, and in coupe the RSX Type S is a contender.
