acura (if you put the two 4-cylinder models up against eachother). The nissan can also come with a 3.5L v6 w/ 270 hp though, but the acura doesn't have a v6 model. However, the nissan v6 supposedly only does 0-60 in 5.9 seconds, which is rather unimpressive, so I think the 4-cyl altima (200+hp stock) would hold its own because it's lighter.

the rsx is faster because its way lighter then an altima.now if you got a altima 3.5 se v6 and raced it against a rsx , not the rsx type S the altima would winrsx type s vs altima 3.5 se v6 , the rsx would win still even though the altima has more torque

Stock for stock RSX-S would win against the Altima 3.5LV6.

The new V6 Altima w. a 6-speed manual transmission is faster...it runs 0-60 in 5.9, and some have clocked even faster.The base RSX (160HP) runs 0-60 around 7 seconds, and the 200 HP RSX Type S runs in the mid 6's. (BTW, a '92 Accord runs 0-60 ~ 9.8 seconds)Raw horsepower doesn't determine acceleration, but power-to-weight ratios, and how the transmission & chassis is set up does. The RSX has great potential for performance mods, but I'm simply describing comparions between stock-for-stock configuration. I'm a big Acura/Honda fan, and personally would never buy a Nissan by preferance.

an rsx is faster, no matter what model altima it is. i raced one in a stock 92 accord and beat it easily. it was the v6 SE model too.

Depends on the models of the RSX and the Altima. However, if the RSX is a type-S, it would win from the start because it's lighter, and i guess faster.
