Visit Acura for more information on the Acura RSX.

The 2004 Acura RSX is a sporty coupe that starts things off for Honda's premium division. It is lightweight, sleek and compact, and it can be had in an ultra-performance Type-S model. The Type-S really steps up the power and style, and most likely the blood rate of the driver as well.

Like all Acura models, the RSX is made with the finest of materials. Aluminum-alloy engine and suspension components are light in weight yet rigid enough to offer strength without excessive vibration. Virtually every body panel is made of double-sided galvanized steel to resist corrosion, and the lustrous paint finish is formulated to protect the RSX for years to come.

Available Models
The 2004 Acura RSX is offered in two models: base and Type-S.

Interior Features
The 2004 Acura RSX is undoubtedly a driver's car. It has large-diameter metallic-face gauges that are grouped in a pod that angles toward the driver. At night, the fire-red backlit gauges really stand out in the darkness. And like a racecar, the gauge needles zero out at the six o'clock position.

Standard interior features with the base model include air conditioning with automatic climate control, an interior air filter, power mirrors, windows and door locks and more. The Type-S adds a high-powered Bose AM/FM/cassette player with in-dash 6-disc CD changer and leather upholstery.

The Acura RSX has a 17.8-cubic foot rear cargo area. It also has a 50/50 rear seat that increases the total to 25.3 cubic feet.

Exterior Features
Acura offers a number of accessories that will increase the audacity of the RSX. A body spoiler, splash guards and a full nose mask can all be had.

The base 2004 Acura RSX model uses a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine for 2004. It generates 160 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 141 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The transmission choices for this engine are 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic with a manual-shift feature.

The 2004 Type-S really increases the strength and performance of the RSX. Under its hood is a 2.0-liter I4 that cranks out 200 horsepower at 7400 rpm and 142 lb-ft of torque at 6000 rpm. It uses a 6-speed manual transmission with a short throw shifter and a short clutch-pedal stroke for effortless gear changes.

Safety and Security
Variable power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering lets you maneuver the 2004 Acura RSX out of danger when it appears. Other standard safety features for 2004 include antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, dual front airbags and front side airbags.
