 Date: August 17, 2004 16:40
 Submitted by:  RyanDL
 Source: 2005 Acura RSX Brochure
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


There is now quite a bit of information floating around the Internet regarding the 2005 RSX and the changes to it. While the press embargo date ends August 26, brochures have already appeared in some Acura dealerships, and (as usual) that information made its way to the internet and our e-mail inboxes. Below we've summarized the latest information. Feel free to make your own speculations by providing feedback to this news item.

In the table below, any changes to the 2005 model are highlighted in red.
