2005 RSX info from "Speed" Magazine
 Date: April 30, 2004 11:05
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: RC
 Credibility Rating: 6


This information is a little dated by now, but if you're like us and you missed it when it was fresh, it's of potential interest. Speed is a special "one-shot" magazine that was recently published by Road & Track (it apparently hit newsstands in March). One of our readers spotted an interesting blurb about the upcoming refresh for the 2005 RSX.

The blurb basically states that the RSX front and rear clips have been redesigned so the car will conform more closely to the "family look". The retouched photo (sourced from a PR photo of a 2001 Integra Type R) shows a front end that resembles the Accord Coupe or S2000. The taillights are said to have been restyled to be long and rectangular, hanging over a thick bumper, so it looks more like past Integras. 18" wheels are said to be a possibility as well. From a drivetrain standpoint, the engine is said to remain largely the same, but there is reportedly a new 6-speed clutchless manual transmission for the car. Also interesting to note is that this new transmission is said to have been developed for a "future Acura TSX". In the photo below you can see a comparison of their image (inset) to the original PR photo:
