Doug DeMuro has released his review of the Integra! This one is a manual A-Spec.
Agree 100% The fact that Honda and Acura are still offering manual cars like this is something that needs to be celebrated before everything goes hybrid or fully electric.This statement on people complaining about the new Integra is spot on...
"I’m amazed by the number of complaints that the new Integra is “just a nicer Civic.” Uh, yeah— so was the old one! I assume the complaints are coming from younger people who weren’t around for the older Integras and only remember the Type R. I was around back then, and I can tell you the vast majority of 1990s Integras had a 140-hp 4-cylinder, cloth seats, hubcaps, and a 4-speed automatic. It was basically just a luxury Civic back then, too."
People also seem to forget the business end decisions that need to be made on a new product. Just be happy it happened.
Yeah not nearly as many people would be interested in an Integra that was going for TLX money.It was always going to be a nicer Civic. If it wasn't it would have been in the same price point as the TLX and it's obviously bad business to compete with yourself.
Yup, just look at how many hoard the TL 6-Speed, the Integra is the next best thing to a newer version of it.Agree 100% The fact that Honda and Acura are still offering manual cars like this is something that needs to be celebrated before everything goes hybrid or fully electric.
Most of the car reviews I see, especially on youtube, tend to be high trims and pretty much fully optioned. The automakers want to showcase all the bells and whistles, and then throw in a 'starting at' price point.My question is these reviews so far have the Integras have accessories on them, is it common to have reviewers showcase a car that have accessories on them?
