2002 Acura RSX Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 62 reviews
The 2002 RSX had some large shoes to fill: the new entry-level coupe was relacing the popular Integra, which last rolled off the production line in 2001.
The engine on the 2002 RSX was a bit bigger than the similar I4 engine in the 2001 Integra. The base engine is a 2.0-liter I4 rated at 160 horsepower and 141 lb/ft of torque, while the Type S gets some tuning to 200 horsepower. Base mileage ranges from 24-27 city and 33 highway for the base, and 24/31 for the Type S.
Safety for this car is excellent, with five-star NHTSA ratings for both the driver and passenger front impact. Good thing, too, as this car is fast and fun to drive. While the base car is available in either a 5-speed automatic or manual, the Type S is available only as a 6-speed manual. Acura is definitely building these cars to be fun and exciting to drive.
Drivers love the driving part of the 2002 RSX; they praise its quick acceleration, smooth handling, and sharp cornering. Some have complained about cracking leather on the steering wheel and throughout the interior. Others do not like the base radio on the car, but do note that it is relatively easy to replace.
