Acura's RSX offers more sophistication than other sporty coupes. It delivers luxury-channel levels of refinement and quality. It looks nice, it's comfortable, and it features all the conveniences of an entry-level luxury car. Handling is excellent, making it easy and fun to drive. Driven hard, this car will do just about anything you ask it to do within the basic laws of physics.
And it's quick, especially when equipped with the high-revving Type-S engine.
Most drivers, however, will opt for the standard 160-horsepower engine. They will be making an excellent choice. Smooth and powerful, this engine is designed to deliver responsive performance around town and crisp acceleration when needed to merge onto busy freeways during morning rush hour.
