even though they have the same size engine they are tuned to a different output. the regular rsx is tuned to only 166 horsepower, the type s is tuned to 200 or 205 hp, depending on the year of the type s. on top of the difference in the engine output there is also a difference in the wheels, and the body. the type s has larger, better looking wheels, a lip spoilder in the back, type s badging, and sportier (deeper bolsted) seats.

The Type S has 200-205 hp (based on year) and the regular RSX has about 170, a big difference for a small car. However, you won't notice the difference as much below 5 or 6k RPM.

Well 1st off, the RSX is the base model. While as the type-s the better car overall. They might have the same K20 engine, but the type-s has 210hp, while as the base model only has 160. People also say that the base RSX i-VTEC is more of an economical, while as the type-s is more like a B series. (More power) Also the RSX-S comes with leather seats 6 speed tranny onlyRed lettering i-VTEC instead of blackBetter enginefasterThats some things the rsx-s has that the base doesnt. Get the type-s, you wont be dissapointed.
