the d16 as its called, has about 140 hp while the dxs has about probably around 120 hp.

The horsepower differs like this. The D16 Sohc Vtec 92-95 model is rated 125HP. The DX D15 NON- Vtec 92-95 is about 112 to 115HP aproximately. The gear ratios are also different. The EX has short gears that provides for faster acceleration. The DX has longer gears which makes for more fuel economy and yet still perform well in acceleration. However, in a race the D15 can beat a D16 but it all depends on the driver. If you have a choice though, go with the EX, unless you're a hatchback fan like me.

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here - carquotes.sinfree.net
