Talking I Test Drove The New CSX ( Its The Bomb )!!!! Its No Regular Civic Thats For Sure

Tonite i test drove the Civic and the brand new 06 CSX.
First of all im sad that the states are not getting the Acura CSX. (I think anyways)
I was unimpressed with the new 06 civics power and among other things...

CSX NOW
When i got to the acura showroom and saw the new csx and glanced a the interior with the navi my jaw dropped. It is the nicest and sweetest interior ever. The seats were awsome and the fit and finish were just super. Acura flung me the keys and said go try it out. I wanted a 5 speed but only auto with triptronic was available. Holy **** man I started it and yes sir the K20a3 purred.

(Note I have a 5 year old and im 34 so I need a 4 door)

I took off on regular auto and at about 3000 rpm i floored it ...Holy **** man i was pushed in the seat as the 155 HP engine lit up.. Then at the red light I put it in true triptronic mode. There is an indicator in the dash that tells you the gear you are in.. Also the triptronic is super hot. Its a padle that you have on each side of the stearing wheel like fomula one(Fvucking awsome).
I took off ad turned left and started smoking the tires like crazy i redlined it and shifted into second right before the cut out and it chirped in second (Fvucking great for an auto. the car flew man.. It was sooo great also having the heated leather seats. It came with 6 cd mp3 350 watt system....

All I can say about the handling is that honda did not lie stock for stock this car outhandles my 2005 Si (EX) 4 door and the dash is just great for visibility...

when i got back in my 05 it felt ancient and just out of date... The throttle by wire is said to be super great when coupled with a standard tranny... Honda states.. Its far easier to learn how to drive stick with throtle by wire than regular cable wire why???? because the engine will correct if you let the clutch out and you dont give enough gas( so less bungled starts for begginer stick drivers...)

Yes the outside isnt the best but just looking at the whole damn package is just amazing..


Common think of family vehicle here for whoever is 30 over , man this car kicks *** period...

its 28000 MRSP canadian funds.. and it come with side curtain airbags ad HID lighting, auto air climate controls, outside temp reader factory alarm trunk realease 4 wheel disk auto shut off headlights dual tip sweet looking exhaust and an interior that holds up to nothing ive ever seen exept lexus class...

The 2006 civic sucks conpared to the CSX period......

OK im waiting on scatman to do this

But hey Im canadian and acura has made a fvucking great car period plus the factory warranty is hella better than honda..

Just think the k20a3 in a 4 door sedan ..
thats great thinking period for a family sedan..

Viper out

Flammers will get the strap on

I've heard that the "F1-style" tiptronic on it is pretty hot, I just saw my first add for it today when I was going throug my morning paper, looks like a pretty nice ride, I think they finally differentiated the EL a bit from the 4-door Civic.

i did the conversoin its 24k US. You can buy a tsx for around 28k.

Thats probably why the csx isn't offered in the US. Most people would probably just get a tsx if there that close in price. I think if priced it at like 20-22k with the navi it would be a better buy.

See thats where Honda hit the bullzeye, a TSX is a nice car but in canada and im sure the US will agree, Many 30's to 40's women just like the feeel and the fact that the CSX or new EL if you will is just a nice cozy place to be in.. Why go to a tsx for like you say for 4 grand more, Its 28000 now cuz it just came out but give it a year and those puppies will come down in price.....

Also insurance is less

Last night no one even looked at the TSX cuz it looked out of place, wait and see the new tsx will be updated to fit this new segment.

anyhow there was alot of people gawking.. Ill take some pics tonite and post the complete package, im actually going to test drive a 5 speed tonite also...

Hey I know it isn't the fastest car out there but it just is a blast to drive. The dash is so neat and honestly you dont even lower your eyes to see the speed its like right there with the temp and gas....

I might just have her lick the leather seats

Different (Yes) The Same (No)

I drove both in two hours difference.

Climate controls are fully automatic instead of the ****...
Different illumination
Leather wrapped steering wheel.
where you open the sunroof there is the auto climate sensor...
Padles for triptronic a la Jaques Villeneuve

among a few different things

EL-Sport is an unknown quantity at this point
I attended a local dealer's unveiling of the CSX last night and was also very impressed with it. While I haven't had a chance to test drive one yet, I must say I was impressed with styling of the car, the fit and finish (the leather seems alot nicer than that in my current EL), and features available. When I have the time, I will definitely be going in for a test drive, and who knows I might even get rid of my EL for CSX.

BTW, for some more pics and info see here: http://forums.clubel.ca/showthread.php?t=16756

i think the 5 speed would add fun factor by keepin your legs and arms movin around, but if you're able to chirp into second or third gear with the tiptronic then i think you could run as fast if not faster lap times with the tiptronic. its DAMN hard to clutch shift faster than a solid condition tiptronic which is the exact reason they developed it: reduce shift times resulting in more time on the throttle thus faster. i drool for a tiptronic 5-6 speed that could plant onto a k30a2 for my 05 vic maybe i can get one of those cars wrecked next year and grab the innards...

its a 155 k series engine so all the same rules apply, change out the internals to the k20a3 and add a supercharger and your set

Why go to a tsx for like you say for 4 grand more, Its 28000 now cuz it just came out but give it a year and those puppies will come down in price.....

Also insurance is less

Last night no one even looked at the TSX cuz it looked out of place, wait and see the new tsx will be updated to fit this new segment.

anyhow there was alot of people gawking.. Ill take some pics tonite and post the complete package, im actually going to test drive a 5 speed tonite also...

yeah if the price is lower i agree it would be a good deal. Then again you candian buyers are completely different from US, so i'm sure its a great car for the candian market, probably competiting very close to a fully loaded mazda 3. Insurance i think would be relatively the same since there both acura, 4dr and relatively same hp. I know the insurance difference between my 04 civic coupe and a TypeS is like an extra $20 a month.

Climate controls are fully automatic instead of the ****...
Different illumination
Leather wrapped steering wheel.
where you open the sunroof there is the auto climate sensor...
Padles for triptronic a la Jaques Villeneuve

among a few different things
Small differences but yet make it a very nice car, the HID's and the auto climate controls are great!

Thats probably why the csx isn't offered in the US. Most people would probably just get a tsx if there that close in price. I think if priced it at like 20-22k with the navi it would be a better buy.
Hi,

The non-leather version is probably cheaper, so making the 20-22k range

You can get a mazda 3 with leather, hids and navi for 21k with the 160hp.

I just think the cars overpriced for what your getting.
