TL/DR: They love the seats, stereo, price, safety, warranties, wheels, brakes/steering, moonroof and hate that it's not a coupe and its power.

The coupe issue has been addressed ad nauseam. Many "drivers" enjoy wringing what they can out of a car. Most reviewers enjoyed driving the Civic and I think at roughly the same weight most will enjoy this.

19-inch wheels are available.
"An aggressive rear fascia with dual exhaust finishers emphasizes the Integra's wide track and sporty stance. An upswept decklid and wide, single piece LED taillights harken back to previous generation models, and the embossed Integra logos in the front and rear fascia recall the 3rd generation car. Distinctive 17-inch alloy wheels are standard while 18-inch wheels are optional, and accessory 19-inch wheels are available."

I only agree with the first part: We Hate: Not Enough Power And It's Not A Coupe.
In 1989, when I test drove the first gen, I wanted the coupe. It looked much nicer and it had my mandatory Sunroof in the LS trim. Today, I need a 4 door, there is no getting around that.
With gas approaching $5 a gallon in my area, perhaps the not enough power won't be so bad. I have never tuned a car before. But how great is it, that you can have a stock tune in all drive modes, while having the tune only in sport mode? If I can't live without the extra power, I'll go that route, and just not use sport mode when I put regular gas in it.

Meanwhile Mercedes sells a ton of base CLA 250's. The average buyer won't care about power not being enough.

Exactly. For power if I needed more I'll just tune it. Never done it but looks like they done some on the SI, I'm coming from a WRX so I will see a difference for sure lol

I’m new to this and haven’t tried anything yet. This is one of the threads that I read that makes me believe you can have different tunes in different modes. Please let me know if I understood correctly.
After you had said it I went out to KTuners site and it looks like that feature is available. For the civic you get the stock tune in eco mode and then the enhanced tune in normal/sport mode.

I can’t find the other post I read of someone claiming stage I tune in normal and stage II tune in sport or something like that. I’ll find out by calling Hondata and Ktuner if I end up buying the Integra
