In this comparison Jason Cammisa finds out how quick the new Integra is compared to the legendary DC2 Integra Type R, Elantra N and Jetta GLI. Trust me, it's worth the watch.
Yeah, and the Civic Si is the performance trim of the Civic. A base Elantra is 147hp and a base Jetta is 158hp, just like a base Civic. So I think the GLI and Elantra N are fair comparisons. VW and Hyundai increased performance quite a bit. Honda could have targeted a faster 0-60 and 1/4 mile and built a different car, but they didn't. That's fine. Honda has their priorities, decided on this drivetrain, and it's totally fair to judge it on performance. It's not the most important thing to me, but it sure is easy to show on YouTube!The gli and N are literally the performance trim models. Pit them against the new Honda type r and there’s your baseline. The integra is a civic. And it still beat the last integra type r which was lighter. Some people can find a flaw no matter what
