Default No more RSX?

I read on one of my lists that Acura is dropping the RSX after this year to
'move the line upscale'. They said a memo had gone out to the dealers with
that information. Can anyone confirm/deny it?

Too bad Honda doesn't have anything remotely similar,they need to bring
back the Prelude and the Integra,even if under the Honda brand.

Not a hatchback;they are very useful.
Is there a hatchback version that is as sporty as the Integra?
(IMO,the RSX is uglier than the Integra)
IIRC,Honda's Civic HB is a tiny boxy stationwagon,and dog-ugly.

I'll bet the Si is cannibalizing sales from the RSX. Just look at that
price difference.

Yes in Canada after taxes and everything its $37 000 for a RSX Type S
(convert that to US and see how much acura rips us off in canada) and the SI
is $28 000....its hard to justify an extra 9 grand just for the RSX...
But I agree, the SI is ugly as sin...

Disagree. Civic SI is far, far better looking than the "prow-shaped"
RSX. A bit lighter and faster as well. The Civic SI was the basis for the
fabulously successful '90-'93 Acura Integra line. Acura should take a hint
and go back to its Civic SI chassis roots. Big, fat, $$ cars (no matter how
good) aren't automatically the most desireable, particularly with $gas$
becoming more and more of a worry. - Bill

The RSX is ugly. I haven't yet seen a Civic SI to judge them.
But Acura is departing the low-end market.

Honda needs to make something like the 2001 Integra 3-dr(light
weight,low,sporty,yet practical),a Prelude(a great driver),and a CRX(good
low-end auto).
I suppose if they made the Civic SI coupe into a 3-dr hatchback -with the
same profile-,it would be OK.

Instead they gave us the Fit....

Always had that feeling -- that the RSX was an orphan at Acura dealers.
