03-05 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe or 03-05 Acura RSX?

Deciding which to buy of the two. Years will range between those stated because there are a couple of different choices on sale currently around me. The rsx is discontinued but looks more sportier and has sportier handling. The accord is larger, an existing model, and easy to modify. Rsx is at 170 hp but lower weight. Accord is 240 hp but heavier. Don't know the exact 0-60 times or which is actually faster. Your input?

The 02-04 rsx is diff than the 05-06 rsx. Just something to pay attention to. Rsx is easy to flip tho... personal experience.. lol

Two pretty different cars. If you plan to modify, the RSX has a bigger market for that. If I would get an RSX it'd be the Type S.

I'm a 19 year old looking for my first car and i decided either of these two cars would be good. I know the 02-04 RSX's are different but only aestetically really. I don't plan to modify either of the cars with the exception of wheels. Maybe a sound system for RSX for ipod input. With an accord, maybe a body kit somewhere down the line but not anytime soon. I am more concerned with reliability and performance. I think the RSX requires premium gas so that is a con and the interior is nowhere close to the accord but its aesthetics really do get me.

I got my rsx when I was 17, now I'm 22 with the accord and I will say the rsx was a beast. It's smaller lighter feels like it handles better than the accord. The hatchback of the rsx makes it easier to load stuff. The interior is cramp and small but the seats are comfy. The accord is bigger and roomy and it has a lot of features the rsx lacks, usb aux power seats butt warmers...
