REVIEW...."ACURA"....."CSX"


Recommended Posts

I love how TTAC blasts Detroit for badge engineering and that is exactly what the CSX is, but it gets 4 stars.

Yes, CSX is to Civic what G5 is to Cobalt. Same kind of blatant badge engineering.

I wouldn't call the ES badge-engineered though, it's platform sharing with the Camry, as the Aura and G6 do with the Malibu. Or the current LaCrosse with the Impala. Same dirty bits, different body and interior.

Honda of Japan loved the Acura CSX so much that it served as a template for the JDM Civic.
Ok I am not entirely sure, but I would be willing to bet a pretty penny that it was Canada who rebadged the JDM Civic, and NOT the other way around.

The bias swings both ways. But I don't like this Canadian rebadge anymore than anyone else. And now that the Civic offers leather (at least here) it makes a car like this even more irrelevant. I heard that this will be the last generation of the Civic rebadge, but who knows.

If they kept the RSX they would have no need for this car.

Everything I've read elsewhere confirms what TTAC has said.

Hmmmm... so you can get Navi & leather in a base Civic sedan, huh? :mellow:

All joking aside,the Pontiac Firefly was a much better rebadge than this.

oh ya,

and first thing that comes to mind with that "name"

Million times cooler than ANYTHING Honda has ever made.

If people had bought the RSX, they would ahve kept it.
