Default Is the Acura RSX a pretty fast car?

It has 160hp, is it light, how quick is it?

Pretty? It's not ugly. Fast? Quicker than a civic. Just don't put a stupid rear spoiler on it and think you are either fast or furious.

160 HP is pretty perky. Horsepower is not a real indicator of a car's ability to move out. The thing you really need to check out is "torque". Remember, the rule of car selling: "Horsepower sells cars, torque moves cars." Torque is what you need to be concerned about. Torque is an engine's ability to move things. Concerning how quick the car is, look at the speedometer. How high does it go? Are you interested in top speed or off-the-line speed. If off-the-line speed is what you are more interested in, torque is your most important asset.

Not real fast especially from a dead stop. Once you get going though it has good pickup.

Depends on what you consider fast. An RSX is pretty peppy, but sure as hell isn't fast. You won't be outrunning anything that runs faster than a high 14 so no, it's not 'fast'.

i dont think that RSXs are fast, for the money. If you want something fast, and like acuras, get a GSR integra, or maybe even a full blown type-r...way faster, and in my opinion look better

If you want more power, pick up a "RSX Type S" it has a 200+HP engine (depends on the year). It is light and corners well--not much body roll in corners. With a nice set of tires, you could have a great deal of fun with one of them.
