The type s is the sportier version of the RSX. I love the RSX Type S. This one 20 year old dude has one and it looks nice. I would like to get one. But who knows. I say the Acura RSX is the best Acura ever but Acura stopped the production in 2006-2007.

The type-s has 40 more horse power, all have leather, a bose stereo system with in dash 6 cd changer, and a 6 speed manual trans... it's an all around better car than the base model.I don't know why I got a thumbs down... the question was what is the difference between the type-s and the base RSX, I answered the question. What more could they need?

02-06 Base2.0L 160 hp (119 kW) I4 K20A302-04 Type-S2.0L 200 hp (150 kW) I4K20A205-06 Type-S2.0L 210 hp (160 kW) I4K20Z1The base RSX has the K20A3 motor with an output of 160 hp (119 kW) and is offered with either an automatic or a five-speed manual transmission; the Type-S has a 200 hp (2002-2004) K20A2 or 210 hp (157 kW) in 2005 K20Z1 motor and a short-throw 6-speed manual transmission. For the 2006 model year vehicles Honda switched to the Rev 8/04 SAE standards for measuring hp. The base RSX for 2006 was rated at 155 hp (116 kW) and the Type-S was rated at 201 hp (150 kW). In 2005 the RSX Type-S received camshafts, b-pipe and muffler, 4.77 final drive ratio, crankshaft pulley and the intake snorkel duct from the Japanese model Honda Integra Type-R. The rev-limit was also increased from 8100 rpm to 8300 rpm. Another major change made to the inline VTEC-i engine was the use of a timing chain rather than a timing belt, which reduced maintenance needs.
