Versatile Sports Coupe W/ Exceptional Refinement by Lisa
 — This care easily cruises at 70-80 on the freeway, and I'm glad I have to reign in the speed, rather than always prod it to go faster. Acceleration, braking, and handling are very good, but not ste... Read More

2006 Acura RSX

The 2006 RSX remained almost the same as the 2005 RSX. Don't be fooled by the drop in horsepower, from 160 to 155 for the standard trim or 210 to 201 for the Type-S; the engine's horsepower is actually the same, but the adoption of new SAE (Society of Automobile Engineers) standards resulted in  different ratings.

After a restyling in 2005, the 2006 kept the same exterior. The interior also remained the same, evoking the usual argument among drivers about whether the back seat is even worth having. It barely seats a child, let alone a full-grown adult.

Taller drivers love driving this car, citing the ample leg and headroom. Conversely, they don't like to sit in the back seat very much, as the sloped rear window gets in the way.
