There's just a razor thin gap between a performance Integra and what else Honda and Acura already offer.

Maybe they just keep the numbers very limited and let exclusivity be the selling point.

Personally if I was in the market for a Honda, I'd take whichever Civic. I just don't think the Integra is different enough for what they're asking. If it was closer in price or had a more unique feature set, I might consider the upgrade. I'm sure there's a buyer for the Integra, maybe someone who considers the sound system a major selling point, but it's not me.
Yeah exactly. I just figured making it an Acura coupe that's shared with the Civic would make it a viable option and something distinct.

I loved the 1.5T in my 2020 Si. For $24k it was the perfect engine and car.

For $35k, or $40k, Id be like Da Fuk? I know Audi and BMW put 200 hp motors in their $40k cars but those are torquey 2.0L motors.

But $24k in 2020 dollars is like $63k today. (kidding)

Seriously though, I've mentioned it before in this thread, you can spend $31k on a Civic Sport Touring (hatch). As someone who has spent many thousands trying to turn cars into something they aren't, I don't see the $0-6K premium for the Integra as an unrealistic increase over the Civic. I actually see it as a decent value proposition.

Even when comparing to the Si, with the Integra you get a lift back, active dampers, a banging stereo, more adult looks, nicer interior, etc. They all add up to being worth the cost, to me.

Yeah the $24k Si is ancient history now.

I wish I liked the Integra design cause Id love a hatch with LSD and great stereo. I have to get the Type R instead. I do like the mock-ups of the Type S so well see.

Like a two-holed bowling ball.

there is absolutely no reason for this car to exist.

Shoulda been a coupe. Would look like the Genesis Coupe, but FWD and more reliable.

You've gotta wonder how many people complained about them discontinuing the Crosstour, because literally their whole new line-up looks like an evolution of it.

That's been my argument as to why Subaru should give us the Levorg going on 10 years now.

It doesn't look good from any angle. But i think the Type S could fix that.
