The Acura CSX was a compact executive car produced by Acura, the luxury division of Honda, from 2005 to 2011. It was sold exclusively in Canada and was the successor to the Acura EL.
The CSX was based on the seventh generation Honda Civic platform and shared many of its components with the Civic. However, it featured a number of upgrades to enhance its luxury and performance, such as a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and a more powerful engine.
The CSX was available with two engine options: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 155 horsepower and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produced 201 horsepower. Both engines were paired with a five-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission.
The CSX also came with a number of standard features, including leather seats, a sunroof, automatic climate control, and a premium audio system. Optional features included a navigation system, a rearview camera, and heated seats.
The Acura CSX was well-received by Canadian drivers for its combination of luxury, performance, and affordability. However, it was discontinued in 2011 due to declining sales and Acura’s decision to focus on other models.
