Default Manual (4cyl) or Auto (6cyl) Honda Accord?

I currently drive a toyota corolla, good on fuel but very slow and grandma-esque. The 1990-2000 Honda Accord have similar gas milage, but more power (and vtech!). Anyway, I was wondering race-wise which car would be better. I know racing in an automatic is like "running a 100 meter sprint in gum boot filled with tadpoles", but it has a v6 so it has more power. The V6 has close to 200HP while the I4 has 145.


Manaul with 145hp or Auto with 200hp. Which is faster?

if you disagree with my car choice, provide a better idea please&thanks! need fuel economy tho

Both are slow if you want something fast you need more displacement.

Really they are all about as slow. Unless you want to get something new like a focus st you can't really have power and gas millage. I would just get something like an old E30 BMW if I needed a sedan.

A manual is typically preferred because you can control your engine speed more reliably; most motors have a narrow optimal operating range.

I'd be looking for cars with a V-6 and manual or turbocharged I-4 and manual.
