This Honda Civic-based sports coupe is Acura's entry-level model and offers the rare combination of solid performance, good comfort, and overall value. While few changes are in the offing for 2006, it remains stylish and sophisticated inside and out without being overly flashy. Its lively 155-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is available with either a five-speed-manual (which is recommended for maximum launch power) or five-speed-automatic transmission. The sportier Type-S version, meanwhile, remains the most satisfying version, with a high-output 201-horsepower 2.0-liter engine, close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox, and a stiffer suspension. A long list of standard features includes four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, front-side airbags, a power moonroof, automatic air conditioning, a premium CD stereo, and alloy wheels. A new color, Global Silver Metallic is added to the palette for 2006. A redesigned version is expected for 2007.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
