Default Would going from a 2006 Impala LT to an Acura RSX base or type s between 02-05 be a down grade?

I am looking to get either a 2002-2005 Acura RSX base or type s, after selling my 2006 Impala. Would this be a good move? I am thinking money wise, gas, and longevity of acuras. Any feed back would be great

will its a good move if you like sport car. the rsx will live longer but its too small and not too comfortable like the Impala, however, if you decided to go with the RSX, get the Type S. it well better looking and 40 more HP.

the car itself I would also consider an upgrade over the impala. but the only down side is the RSX is significantly smaller than your impala.

you should be able to drive it until at least 200,000 miles with proper maintenance.
