All these cars resurgence is because of impending petrol car ban. Good luck to Honda though
Apparently Acura has been working on the Integra for the past 6 years. With that much time I hope they got it right.I'd love to see this happen. Hopefully Honda can get it right.
If it's anything like the Chinese Integra Honda unveiled it could be closer to the Integra in more ways than one.I owned several Integra 3 doors.
This doesn't move the needle for me.
If it is Civic based, 2.0T with AWD, I'd be impressed.
However, probably just going to be a CTR variation.
Oh yikes...I hope to god this is a Chinese only thing and not Acura is releasing here.If it's anything like the Chinese Integra Honda unveiled it could be closer to the Integra in more ways than one.

Nope 4 door according to leaked images from ChinaI suppose it will be built out of the new Civic platform, which weighs at least 2877 pounds.
Big question, will it come back as a 2 door liftback?
Thank god for that. I was reading this article and they're saying this Integra is a way for Honda to sell more cars in China.That’s just the Chinese version of the Civic. Has nothing to do with the Integra we’ll be getting.
I won’t be a buyer (a 2024 Nismo Z has my name on it) but am no less a fan of the Integra. I drove one from the 90’s and my good friend’s 87 two-door hatch when we were in college - both had manual transmissions. They’ve always been great cars, so I hope Acura has spent enough on R&D to meet the public’s lofty expectations. The Integra won’t be a lightweight due not to just having four doors, but because of modern safety equipment, more luxury than the Civic (on which it’s likely based) and the heftier high performance equipment needed to make it perform competitively. I’d guess 3300 lbs +/-, 270-280hp base and probably a Type-R with 310-320hp/manual transmission from the CTR. That Honda offered a manual for the 2.0T Accord means developing one for the base Integra wouldn’t cost much as it would just need certification. The same is true for a Type-R. Honda fumbled the ball with that stick Accord. Had they made a true Accord Type-R, they’d have had a hit on their hands and would still be selling all they could make just like the CTR does to this day. The problem was that they took a half measure, softening/detuning everything in that Accord instead of going all the way by including everything that makes the CTR great. Hopefully it’s a lesson learned and will make the Integra that much better by offering a stick-only Type-R and perhaps even offering an optional manual in the base car. The Type-R is a foregone conclusion because it would be asinine for Honda to screw up the Integra and not offer it. That Toyota MASSIVELY screwed up the Supra means it’s not impossible for Acura to do the same with the Integra, though we know for sure it won’t be a BMW …. All that said, it’ll be entertaining to see what happens over the next year or so as the Z becomes available and we learn more of the Integra.
