Default Do you consider the Acura Rsx Base a fast car?

So I just upgrade from an Toyota corolla 1992 to and Acura RSX manual base. I know that is a lot more faster than the corolla, but everywhere I go people always asking me how fast is it, etc etc. I don't think is that fast since is not the K20a2 type S rsx.

Does the base model is still faster than many other daily drive cars? thanks for any opinions

This really depends on one's definition of "fast."

I think the base model is somewhat quick when comparing it to base compacts in its class, but no, I don't consider it a fast car in general.

My definition of fast is a quarter mile time of around 13.5 seconds or less. I don't think even the RSX Type S can do that without the help of a turbo kit or serious N/A build.

Depends on your reference point for "fast". Its fast for a sports compact, and unless you live in a wealthy area its probably faster than most of the ordinary cars you see on the road. But in the world of STI's 370zs, m3s etc no it's not fast.
