The 2003 RSX standard coupe continues to impress with high power at a low price. The engine is a 2.0-liter I4 rated at 160 horsepower. Mileage for the automatic 5-speed transmission is estimated at 24/33, while the 5-speed manual gets 27/33.
Drivers of the 2003 RSX rave about its handling and acceleration. Some drivers find the seats uncomfortable, and others believe the stereo to be a little on the lackluster side.

The 2003 RSX Type S is a peppy, expensive-feeling but low-costing sports coupe. An 11:1 compression ratio gives the 2.0-liter I4 200 horsepower and 141 lb/ft of torque. Mileage is very reasonable for this much power, and is estimated at 24 city/31 highway.
The 2003 RSX Type S is loved by drivers for its tight cornering and rapid acceleration. Some seem to have driven their cars a little too hard; they are hearing rattling noises that are difficult to replicate at slower speeds. Then again, how can you not drive this car fast? It's built for it.
