Default Acura RSX Base Performance Question?

Hi There,I am wondering if I will notice an increase in performance and speed with a 2002 Acura RSX Base. I have been driving a 2001 Dodge Neon for the last two years and am pretty used to that. Never drove anything else before. I am wondering if the performance will be a decent increase. I know the car overall is a great car and a huge improvement but just wondering performance specifically. Both AutoJust to be clear all I'm wondering is if there will be a noticable difference while I drive this car compared to a Dodge Neon. Will there be a noticable amount of acceleration and speed. Thanks

your comparing apples and oranges... dodge is a company on the verge of chaper 11 becasue they make desposible cars while acura is a semi-luxary car in a class all of its own... i suggest reading up on the technology honda puts in there engine on wikipedia or something... make sure you understand what ivtec is and how it works.

you will notice a big difference, the rsx base model has 160hp stockthe neon came with the option of a 132hp sohc engine and one engine that had 150hp stockthe rsx has much better handling it has a sport tuned suspension while the neon is just a regular commuter the ivtec on the k20 engine will make it much funner to drive, better accleration, speed etc..
