I dont think so, maybe in base form but the GSX kicks ass, I would say one of the only truly defined girls cars would be the new beetle ( because of the fact that it comes with a flower vase as standard eguipment) or the cabrio

Cant beat the WRX...

A) its turbo so a couple little mods and you can add some good HP
and
B)its AWD so you can get a hell of a holeshot..

It'd still be a pretty tough choice for me RSX vs. WRX
I know the WRX is way faster, but it looks like a clown car....
I'm startin to really like how the RSX looks plus it seems like a really good deal: standard leather seats, heated seats, 6 disc in dash CD player..... all that standard... that's pretty damn sweet for the price

that's why it's a tough choice... it's either a worse lookin, but better performance car or a good lookin car that has a little worse performance

oh my, what a dillema i can't figure it out.... cause the RSX has nice luxury features too

I think the RSX is better. This is because it looks nicer, and although it doesnt perform as well as the WRX, it still performs quite well. You can always make it perform better after you buy it anyways. In my opinion, looks is a very important factor when buying a car.

while its true you can improve the performance of the rsx you can never make it perform better then a all wheel drive car it really also depends on what he is doing and what kind of racing

I'd take the WRX over the RSX. It outperforms the Rsx and reviews say the Rsx is pure muscles where the driving isn't as good as the r badger. If your going to mod the rsx then I'd take the wrx and mod it cause i've seen em and they are just as sweet as any mod rsx plus better performance.

-----------
ps. i voted for wrx

IMHO i wouldn't say the wrx, rsx or gt-s are pocket rockets.
I wouldn't compare these cars with compact cars like the focus, golf or civic in the first place because these cars are sport coupes which don't meet the comfort or space offered in the compact cars.
But if these are the only cars you are considering take your decision thinking in whats most important to you. Performance, handling, looks, aftermarket parts, etc...

If you drive always alone or maybe with your girlfriend, wife, or one friend then a sport coupe will do. But forget using a rsx for the family weekend trip.

As for my personal opinion i would take the civic because of a good balance between all of the features i look in a car. Only thing i don't like is that where i live all japanese cars are terribly overpriced and you have to sell your soul to buy spare parts.

I would definetely compare the GTI with the RSX, and GT-S, because they are all 6 cylinder front wheel drive compact hatchbacks and are all in the same horsepower range. As for the WRX, it might be in a different category because of the fact that it is 4 wheel drive. The SVT focus and civic SI are in their own horsepower range but that can be easily fixed with mods because you have to keep in mind that they are cheaped then the others. As you can tell, I like hatchbacks, because 5 out of the 6 cars I am considering are hatchbacks

TEST DRIVE

Yesterday I went to a Volkswagen, Acura, and Suburu dealer to test drive the different cars, here are my opinions on each car.

Acura RSX Type S 6 spd mnl (in desert silver metallic):
Pros: Really nice interior, nice luxury features and a very short throw.
Cons: A little too refined & too quiet, you dont feel or hear the power much, you feel like you are in a whole different world from the engine.

Suburu WRX Sedan 5 sped mnl (in silver):
Pros: Powerfull, accelerates well, AWD
Cons:If you think the front is ugly then look at the back. interior is mediocre. The gearbox is crappy and has a relatively long throw

VW GTI VR6:
Pros: Luxury Features, You get the feeling of power, nice engine purr, good acceleration, excellent handling & brakes, good manueverability, extremely suportive seats with side bolsters, lots of trunk room, rear headrests, and the most attaching car out of all of them.
Cons: Only 174 HP and 5 speed mnl, but this will be fixed in January of 2002 because it is coming with 204 horsepower and a 6 spd.

THE GTI WINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If any of you guys have driven, test drove, or own any of the cars give me your opinions on them and thank you to all of you who replied!!
