Makes sense after killing off the civic coupe. Only way Honda can ruin it is with a 1.5T.

Any reason to get this over the frs/BRZ? Brings back memories of high school though when everyone had a GS-R/Prelude/Celica.

If they are making it a sedan would make sense to make it a sportback style but that wont happen. Makes their lineup naming dumb. They should just stick to the RDX, MDX and add a subcompact CUV.

It definitely looks like Honda will be separating this new compact further from the Civic than the Current ILX, based on these teaser images from Acura.

Didn't they just kill off the NSX?

Wow 2-doors and manual transmission in 2022? They'll sell at least 100 of them!

If they actually want to sell a bunch, just pull a Ford or a Mitsubishi and turn it into another 4-door CUV and be done with it.

I'm very excited.

In before the usual Honda haters. Hoping it'll be a Civic Type R that doesn't look like a Civic Type R.
Deal with it.

Yeah but what does that have to do with the Integra?

I think Acura already has one: RDX.

Nobody is forcing you to buy it or look at it.

Ever wonder why mainstream auto manufacturers don't sell 2-doors or manual transmissions anymore? In North America, nobody buys them.

Example: I was watching a Dodge Dakota Convertible review last night.....and wondered why nobody makes pickup truck convertibles these days?

Looks like they announced Integra (which looks like coupe in the drone teaser) during the NSX send off event.

I guess we will have to wait and see if it's a 2dr coupe or 4dr coupe.

In theory, ILX already paired the 201HP engine with DCT can be dropped into Integra as based model. And then borrow Type-R's rig to form Type-S.

Since Civic coupe isn't coming back, this may bring the kiddies back into Acura.

More likely it'll be a 2dr to keep a 2dr in the line up while NSX checks out.

But then again, while 4dr coupes are all the rage these days, Acura was actually the 1st one that did it, almost 40 years ago.

Yeah but an NSX is a supercar (yeah yeah I know...) and an Integra is/was a 2 door cheap(er) coupe.

And that 4 door pic with the pop up headlights is amazing LOL. Front end reminds me of my old Prelude.

I think the sweet spot in the Honda family is going to be the 2022 Civic Si. Manual transmission (no auto option), lighter and cheaper than anything Acura could come up with.

The Si will be basically the new generation 4-door Civic, with a different drivetrain (no one knows exactly which one). At dealerships in the USA in October.

The 2022 Honda "Sport" looks like this (msrp $28,165 +++):

The Si is going to look almost the same, and the msrp will be approx. $3,000 more (my guess).

New Integra: good looks, heavy and slow, starting at $41,000 (my guess).
New Civic Si: dull looking, light and agile, starting at $31,000 (my guess).

I hope this new Honda/Acura Integra makes it into production as there isn't a huge market for 2 door vehicles these days.
I remember visiting the Detroit Autoshow, Acura kept on displaying the same NSX prototype for 3 years straight before making it into production.

The Acura (Confidential...lol) forecast chart, SUVs are 65% of their 200k volume. Based on current consumer demand and corporate profits it would make sense for Acura to produce Honda HR-V equivalent in their lineup than to build Integra successor right now.

Honda being Honda, will probably just end up ******* this one up too. Just like all the teasers for the new TLX TypeS, total turd. Honestly the BRZ/FRZ sets a pretty high benchmark for a modern enthusiast car. Gives you way more feelz compared to the current 911's.

Wow, I had no idea Acura was going to bring back the Integra nameplate. I have to admit, I'm excited. While not the type of vehicle I'd likely ever purchase again, I really hope Acura gets it right and it helps them out.
