why are RSX type-ses fast? :/

hi,
i was looking at rsx type-s comparisons with other cars such as 2005+ mustang v6 4.0L , subrau wrx (not sti) and audi tt 1.8t. of all 3, rsx have the lowest torque/hp yet it still beat/have comparable performance with the others~ if you compare the torque, it is like 50+ ft-lb behind all the other cars in question. can anyone enlighten me why this is the case? i m trying to decide which one of those i should get..

Re: why fast? :/

You have to take a look at the weight of the car as well. The Subaru is 4WD which adds weight to the car, the Audi is also heavy as is the Mustang. Seeing that the RSX is only ~2700 lbs the power/torque to weight ratio is probably on the same level as these other cars.
