The s- stands for sports type, but I would recommend getting the acura rsx type s because it has more horsepower and much faster than the toyota corolla type s, and plus young people like going fast, HECK YEEEEs!!!!!!!

An RSX-S is a sports coupe with 200 HP. A Corolla S is nothing but a Corolla with some vinyl cladding added.

the S in the two car means Sport....

Acura RSX Type S

Yes there is a difference between the two cars, lets just compare the Acura RSX for this example. A normal RSX is not tuned in anyway, no handling mods or anything. Type S model has handling mods, bumper, side, rear spoiler and obviously trunk spoiler for sporty looks. Type S gets leather.

Type S also has a different engine, K20A2 which produces 200HP, its almost identical to the Civic Si today. Normal RSX has a K20A3 which produces 160HP. Base has single camshaft VTEC and the Type-S has Dual-Camshaft VTEC. also Type S has a six speed manual transmission while base has 5 speed.

Type S also has better, Crank shaft, flywheel, conrods, conrod bearings, main bearing bolts, pistons, gasket seal, the whole cylinder head, cams, cam lobes, valves, valve springs, retainers, rocker arms, solenoid actuator, oil pump, intake manifold, throttle body, exhaust manifold, muffler etc etc - Milano Teg

A different ecu tuning higher rpm redline/revlimit , the cams are more agressive the type S gets 40 more hp approximately.So the parts are different and some of the interior is different seats mainly possibly stereo,wheels,suspension.

--thats how Honda tunes their sports cars

Toyota Corolla S:

Now the Toyota doesn't have any of this, except the bumper, side, rear and trunk spoiler. maybe a sporty looking dashboard but thats about it.

The Toyota is just about looks, reliability and fuel economy....nothing sporty on the corolla

choice is yours:

you are better off with the Acura RSX Type S if you want sporty feel, proper manual transmission, a car worth keeping.

you are better off with the Toyota Corolla S if you are looking for normal drive for A to B, fuel economy, reliability.

well the Acura can be reliable depending upon how you maintain it. The Toyota can come with a bigger engine, Camry's 2.4L only in the XRS version, which is pretty fast, good torque distribution.

But seriously test drive them both! (technically people will definitely prefer the Acura
