This being my first coupe had to be the most exciting. It was the 1st car I laid eyes on as I walked out onto the lot. I was impressed with the ergonomics of its compact yet stylish design that says, Hop in and Go! I will say while the engine loves to rev, the ride can be a bit tight and bouncy, but in this particular car, thats what gives it that race appeal. On the inside, Acura did an outstanding job on the leather seating, simple yet functional. The controls on the dash were again simple, but tied into the whole theme of the vehicle. I did think for this class of vehicle, Acura could have beefed up the audio system, which was not bad, but could be better. All in all, this was a good buy.
my favorites were the fold down back seats, the holder for the gas cap.The sunroof was great being that it was a standard feature.Perhaps the most appreciative feature was the auto climate control which is normally found on cars a class above.Last but not least, the V-Tech engine, low maintenance.
Better audio system, a trunk release button, fog lights (should be a standard feature on this type of vehicle)
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.
Close ratio 5 speed, the interior dash layout, and the auto climate control
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!
