It was also known as the Honda Integra DC5 from the 4th generation Honda Integra Sport couple compact car debuted in April 2001. Production was carried out from 2001 to 2006 for the Integra. When the seventh generation Civic was introduced in 2000, Integra also joined it by adapting to the double-wishbone suspension in the rear and the MacPherson struts in the front in place of the former on both ends. The same happened with the engine and the B-series was replaced by the K-series.

Acura NSX models did not appear anywhere in the world excepting North America initially. The RSX was a strong seller for the Honda but did not fit into the scheme of Acura’s global strategy to make it a worldwide brand. Rest of the world knew the RSX as a Honda brand only. Less expensive models started coming from Honda in 2006 which included the Honda Civic Si and it was then decided that the production of RSX would be stopped. The final car was built in the 2006 summer. The Honda Civic was considered as a more viable option due to its low pricing and options were also many. The Civic also became popular with the younger generation because it was designed so and cheaply priced compared to the NSX. The Acura RSX was replaced by the TSX as an entry level car from 2007.

Options and Packages

The car has undergone notable improvements and passenger comfort level was increased hence the car gained about 100 lb in excess but the car was deceptively fast. With six-speed gears optimally spaced available as options it is possible for the driver to exploit the car’s ability to the limit. The shifter was elegantly designed with silver and black lining, and had short throws. The interior accommodating along with the performance had improved tremendously and this has been done without expanding the foot print of the car.  The height has been increased to 2.5 inches which enabled the Acura engineers to more room for the driver and the drive did not even had to use the seat adjustments.  The seats have been up-scaled to fit larger individuals and also offered back and thigh support with solid bolstering. The center console is a narrow strip which had spared the space for front seats.  The console and dash were given a new design in silver and were outlined with new fabrics and texture. This is far away from the old design dominated by black.  A fully automatic climate control was integrated into the Acura RSX and the audio was a Bose stereo sound system. Six speakers amplified the crystal clear sound from the renowned audio equipment maker. The 2002 Acura RSX was rated with 5/5 stars for front impact and 4/5 for side Impact.
