Torque vs. Horsepower

How does acceleration feel in a car that has lots of horsepower, but not that much torque, vs. a car that has lots of torque but less horsepower? For example, the Honda Civic LX has a 2.0L engine with 158 horsepower and 138 lb.-ft. of torque, vs. the Volkswagen Golf TDI, which has a 2.0L diesel engine with 140 horsepower and 236 lb.-ft. of torque.
