About Acura RSX
The fourth-generation Honda Integra was also called the Acura RSX. It was designed with customers in mind and was intended to raise awareness of the brand rather than individual cars. The seventh-generation Civic was introduced in 2000 to serve as a platform for the Acura RSX. It ditched Honda's traditional double-wishbone suspension and instead used McPherson struts in the front and a transverse suspension in the rear, as well as a new K-series engine in place of the B-series engine. The iS features a 2.0-liter, 160-hp DOHC K20A3 i-VTEC 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, mated to a five-speed automatic or manual transmission. The 2001-2003 iS model was offered with 15-inch steel wheels with wheel guards or optional 16-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels. The 2004-2006 Type-S was equipped with 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, as was the Acura RSX Type-S. The JDM Type R was equipped with an upgraded 2.0-liter 217 hp DOHC i-VTEC K20A 2.0-liter engine.
Due to Japanese regulations on road parts, many tuning parts for the Acura RSX are available from Honda dealers. For example, Honda dealer M&M Honda has its own brand of parts. Honda's tuning company, Mugen, sells parts as accessories through Honda dealers. Two versions of the Acura RSX were available in the United States: a base model called simply Acura RSX and the Type-S. The RSX came standard with many features, such as cruise control, four-wheel brakes with ABS, power windows, and a power sunroof. It was only available with a six-speed manual transmission. The Type-S was available with sport suspension and brown wheels. Of note were the two options available for the 2002 model year. Acura RSX Type R HID projector headlamps were available for the RSX.

In 2005, the RSX and RSX Type-S received a new look. On the exterior, the headlights and taillights were upgraded, and a new rear spoiler was installed on the model. The base model was equipped with 12-inch Enkei wheels, while it was offered with 17-inch Enkei/Asahi wheels. The RSX was available in many exterior colors, but only two interior colors: black and beige. The choice of exterior color also determined the choice of interior color. Some colors were available in both series. Other colors were available in one version but not the other. The A-Spec package was offered for other models. All Canadian vehicles with leather seats had both heated seats and heated side mirrors. Wheel types varied by model years. 2002-2004 models had 15-inch steel wheels with hubs and 16-inch five-spoke wheels in silver or bronze.
The entry-level RSX is ideal for everyday use. It's easy to drive, and the spacious trunk makes it even easier to use. This version of the Acura is more fun to drive, although the six-speed manual transmission may discourage potential buyers who don't want to shift gears themselves. Regardless of the version, the RSX is an FWD sport utility that deserves attention. Like other Honda and Acura products, it cleverly combines performance, comfort, and convenience in a package that costs less than most competitors. The RSX Type-S is very powerful in its own right. Although new, it is equipped with the latest engine technology. It was the first Acura vehicle equipped with i-VTEC.
