RSX NON-type S!

2005 Acura RSX 2dr Hatchback w/Leather (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I love this car! It's the perfect combination of fun to drive and all around comfort for the daily commute. At first I was skeptical because the good press has surrounded the Type S version. However, if you need a fun to drive car that is comfortable for commuting (and every day life outside the track world), the standard RSX model is the way to go. Opt for the leather to take the comfort level up a step further. Also, the standard RSX model does not need premium fuel- the Type S does. So at an average of 27 MPG (city), that's one more accolade the automotive media has missed on this little brother of the Type-S.

Best Features

Close ratio 5 speed, the interior dash layout, and the auto climate control

Worst Features

An option for the Bose radio system only available in the Type-S. However, most of the ear pleasing sounds can come from turning the radio off and enjoying the purr of the engine!
