Acura RSX is a youthful sports coupe car that boasts reliability, performance, and style. The model comes in two trims, the regular RSX base model and the RSX Type-S. The base model comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 160 horsepower and 141 pound-feet of torque. It comes with 16-inch wheels and tires, cloth upholstery, a five-speed manual or optional five-speed automatic. The RSX Type-S raises the bar to 210 horsepower (up from 200 last year) and 143 pound-feet of torque from its version of the same 2.0-liter engine. Type-S comes with leather, a six-speed manual with no automatic option, and 17-inch wheels and tires. The RSX is known to be more fun with the manual transmission. For 2005, the Acura RSX has added benefits in the A-Spec package and includes upgraded brakes, with slotted rotors and better pads.
