    2005 Acura RSX scoops Spike TV ‘Tuner’ award

    2005 Acura RSX scoops ‘Tuner’ award
    June 28, 2005

    The 2005 Acura RSX Type-S drove away with the “The Tastiest Tuner of 2005” award at the first-ever “AutoRox,” a nationally-televised auto awards show airing on Spike TV. Hosted by Carmen Electra and Joe Rogan (of “Fear Factor” fame), “AutoRox” honored and celebrated America’s passion for the automobile.

    In addition to the RSX, “AutoRox” handed out awards in a dozen other categories, with winners ranging from the Ferrari F360 Spider to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

    The “Tastiest Tuner of 2005” award marks another accolade for the RSX, which has carved a solid niche within the important “tuner” market and has won an assortment of industry awards since 2002. Available in two distinct models - the sporty RSX and the high-performance RSX Type-S - the RSX serves as an important point of entry for the brand, introducing performance enthusiasts to the Acura line-up of performance luxury vehicles.

    In addition to the “AutoRox” award, the RSX was previously named to Car and Driver’s “10Best,” Edmunds.com’s “ Most Wanted Coupe Under $25,000,”and one of Ward’s “10 Best Engines.” With a high-performance i-VTEC engine, abundant luxury features, a racing-inspired ****************pit and aggressive styling, the RSX has set a bold standard of driving excitement and refinement in the sports coupe segment.

    Didn't Autorox air in February? I just knew that thing would be on C&D 10 best list. Dammit.

    While I think the RSX is a fine car, it seems difficult for me to justify the expense of what is essentially a very nice Civic versus a Scooby WRX or new Mustang GT. Then again, I'm not big on sophistication. Maybe when I'm older.
    "I cannot wait for the new fad to come along, one that doesn't involve making respectable looking cars look as though they were parked nearby when the plastic factory exploded."
