Before most automakers had any interest in the compact premium segment, Acura launched the Integra, and then the RSX. A car that was perhaps ahead of its time, the RSX is set to make a comeback.
A Motor Trend reports cites sources claiming the next-gen RSX will get the new 201-hp 2.4-liter Civic Si engine, mated to a six-speed manual and a limited slip differential. It will also get Acura?s more angular styling (none of which comes as a surprise).
A brand distinctly short on coupes, Acura is reportedly also developing a larger 2-door that will be powered by the company?s new plug-in hybrid system, but mated to a V6 rather than the 4-cylinder engine Honda has been showing off.
As many as three other coupes may also joint the lineup, with the MT report mentioning another C-Segment coupe, as well as the next-generation NSX, which is now rumored to use a 400-hp V8 engine. In addition, there are continued rumors about more potent version of the CR-Z.
