Acura RSX Return Confirmed

There have been rumors circulating for a while that Honda is going to revive the RSX badge for a new entry-level model, but now its been confirmed by spy photos of a new small Acura that was recently caught testing. Although the previous RSX was a coupe, it looks like the RSX badge may be applied to a new entry-level sedan for the Acura lineup.

The new Acura compact sedan will be based on the Honda Civic platform. Although it’s based on the Civic platform, the Acura sedan looks nothing like the Civic, which is a good thing. The RSX will be larger than the Civic and obviously more upscale. It’s expected that a coupe and possible convertible version will follow a year or two after the sedan debuts. It remains to be seen if the RSX will arrive in 2012 or 2013, but either way the arrival of the RSX means that the TSX will disappear after 2013.
