2004 Acura RSX Sport Coupe

Description: Sport Coupe
Base MSRP Range: $20,025-$23,320
Invoice Price Range: $18,261-$21,261

Acura's price-leader, a compact-class hatchback coupe, emerged in 2002 on Honda's global compact platform as successor to the original coupe, Integra. It continues in 2004 with two different issues as the base RSX and high-performance Type-S edition. Both stock a twin-cam 2.0-liter four-in-line engine that comes with Acura's i-VTEC system.

The RSX base version makes 160 hp and links to a standard five-speed manual transmission or optional five-speed Sequential SportShift automatic. Type-S goes further through tuning to push output to 200 hp and manage the power through a six-speed manual. Type-S also has track-tuned suspension settings with firmer springs and dampers plus larger front vented disc brakes. With hatchback styling, the two-door cockpit provides seats for two up front and two more on a folding back bench.

Standards range from automatic climate system and keyless entry to power controls for mirrors, windows and door locks, a power moonroof and premium audio with in-dash CD deck. Perforated leather covers seats on Type-S but is optional on the base model.
