Exterior Views Part 1

The rear 3/4 view has some nice crease lines which follows the family traits of the CL and TL.


There are no side moldings on the car to ward off door dings. Just be careful when parking your car in tight spaces. The fender bulges are very slight so the car does not have a muscular look to it. However, it looks like you can still fit pretty large aftermarket wheel/tires under there.


These are not the stock wheels. They are 18" Konig wheels which the dealer put on. The side skirt looks just a little tacked on, but it flows well with the car.


These mirrors are bigger than the Integra, but Acura cites that they are more aerodynamic and produce less wind noise. They fold forward and backward of course. In my opinion the black plastic molding which the side mirror is attached to, should be painted the body color.


The optional rear wing is a slightly larger evolution of the standard wing on the Integra GS-R. Not shown here, but the RSX's rear glass does not exhibit the checkerboard pattern of light that the Integra rear glass did. Perhaps Acura is using a higher quality glass now which does not cause the checkboard distortion.


The rear view emotes a larger car feeling. As always, the gas filler door is on the driver's side.


The tail pipe is a very nice size; not too large, not too small.


The rear badging is nicely subtle and the red S gives a nice contrast. The partial circular scoops below the taillights remind people of the same scoops on the Integra's front headlights. This is also repeated on the front headlights.


Since the rear wing is optional, the center mounted brake light is integrated into the rear deck lid.


This view is similar to the Integra, except that the moonroof seems to be larger and that there is more hoodline extending backwards. You can see that gas mileage remains good at 24 City and 31 Highway.
