Boasting sleek lines and a sophisticated approach to sporty design, the stunning new 2002 Acura RSX Coupe hits the road this year with plenty of power, precision handling, and a wide array of comforts and conveniences to keep you happy and comfortable.

Available Models
Choose from the sporty Acura RSX Coupe or the high-performance Acura RSX Type-S Coupe this year. Both offer plenty of luxuries in a sensibly-designed interior, and the Type-S Coupe takes it up a notch in the engine department.

Interior Features
Within the well-appointed cabin of the RSX Coupe are standard comforts and conveniences such as a 50/50 folding rear seat for additional cargo space, automatic climate control, power moonroof, and a premium audio system with in-dash CD player. Other luxuries range from a remote keyless entry system with anti-theft immobilizer to power windows, power door locks, three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, and metallic-faced gauges with a backlit design.

Acura RSX Type-S Coupe adds the opulence of perforated leather upholstery, which is also available on the base model as an option.

Exterior Features
Crisp lines and fine attention to detail are enhanced by dual power outside mirrors, short front and rear overhangs, chiseled accent line, and attractive curves for stunning curbside appeal. The distinctive front fascia is highlighted by tbe signature five-sided Acura grille, large and bright multi-reflector head lights, and a deeply beveled chin spoiler. Every coupe is fitted with sixteen-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.

Each RSX Coupe base model packs an impressive 2.0-litre, DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder VTEC engine that cranks out 160 horsepower and 141 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a quick-shifting five-speed manual, with a responsive five-speed Sequential SportShift automatic available as an option. High-mounted rack-and-pinion steering and an all-new finely-tuned suspension contribute to precision handling.

The Acura RSX Type-S Coupe takes performance up a notch with a high0output 2.0-litre, twin cam engine that pumps out 200 horsepower and 142 lb-ft of torque. This model sports an all-new six-speed close-ratio manual transmission with double and triple-cone synchronizers for incredible shifting.

Safety and Security
Simply outstanding in this department, the 2002 Acura RSX Coupe is equipped with safety standards such as four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, side impact door beams, and both front and rear crumple zones. Passengers are protected with a driver depowered air bag, passenger depowered air bag, and side impact air bags. The front seats are built with dual seatbelt pretensioners, and side impact protection pads.
