Acura RSX Type S

As an owner or Acura RSX Type S, which was last sold in 2006, here is a reflection of the small but zippy sports coupe. 

The 200-hp replacement for the Integra does 0-60 in just 6.1 seconds. 

The 2.0-liter engine (which has i-VTEC, or continuous intake-cam-phase control, along with dual camshaft variable lift and duration) offers such muscular midrange performance that it feels like a much larger powerplant than it in fact is. Even when cruising in sixth gear, there's good throttle response available.
