The Acura RSX, especially the Type S, was without a doubt a very exciting vehicle in its market niche and time slot. It shared a class with the Imprezza WRX. Subaru's high-performance all-wheel-drive sedan. These two compatriots shared a fierce rivalry neck and neck down the roads, highways and race tracks.
Both the base and premium models the Acura RSX were powered by a 2.0 liter 16 valve 4 cylinder power plant, equipped with a i-VTEC system , which was a motor technology designed at that time exclusively for the sister divisions of the Honda auto group- Honda & Acura. For the uninitiated i-VETC stands for "Intelligent Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control" allowing infinite variability in valve timing and lift to achieve maximum engine power and performance while achieving minimum emission standards and standard ratings. In addition and what was remarkable for this car and its time is that the system and systems combined VTC (Variable Time Control) ensuring a variable control of ignition timing maxidas ds808.
Power-wise the RSX Type S is far superior since its engine, also a 2.0 liter is fitted with an even more efficient version of the i-VTEC system, borrowing from the NSX. Its extra 40 horsepower is more than ample, and more than enough to take care of the main shortcomings in the RSX base model overall.
Of the performance of the Type S reminds you of the Honda S2000 roadster it's because both share practically the same mechanical technology and technologies, down to the crankshaft and connecting rods? Other noticeable RSX characteristics included 11.8 inch front brakes (as opposed to the standard 10.3 inch), a firmed-up suspension system with control-link struts in front and double wishbones in the back x431 pro mini, and 16 inch wheels. For the rest, all RSX models sported a more rigid chassis overall, where torsional rigidity was increased overall, from previous related models on the road, by 35 % and resistance to torsion by 116 %.
Looking inside the cockpit the comfortable leather sport seats , the Acura RSX had a premium Bose Music System , and pre the iPod generation had a 6-CD changes as well as various other amenities and creature comforts that more than helped the Type S "stand out from the crowd".. Incidentally, all RSX's were equipped with automatic climate control, front and side airbags along with power windows and mirrors.
Although it has been said by some notable reviewers in the automotive trades that the Coupe's lines lack "originality", considerable attention was paid indeed to the presentation of its dashboard. Indeed the instrument panel was laid out in a classy arrangement in a perforated suede cover ( imitation for reasons and choice of durability and auto maintenance), and the display panels attractively set off against a silvery background are more than easy enough to read- even at low light levels at high road speeds.
The three spoke steering wheel leather wrapped and the climate-control button sported what might be called a smart stopwatch-look. At night this had a soft amber appearance with a soft glow.
Overall the Acura is still a most highly desirable and highly soft after car that gives both high performance , great handling and fast looks as it scoots down the road, highway or freeway.Kerri I. Swan Winnipeg Used Honda Hondas Winnipeg Waverley Auto-Mall
