In my mind, the existing reviews of the Civic SI that are already out there, are sufficient. I particularly like
It will have different suspension tuning and I suspect more sound deadening. Rented an Accord 2.0T in Nashville this week and it was fast as a scalded cat but had too much road noise on the highway. Hope the Integra rectifies that and that the 1.5T and CVT combo can do 0-60 in under 7 seconds (unlikely but would be nice).

Interesting that you brought up the Accord. The 2018 - 2020 accord 1.5 CVT vs 1.5 Manual acceleration times should be a good predictor. The 1.5 Manual accord does not have the LSD which may make a difference. I do know that the CVT was slower than the manual in the 9th gen Accord (non turbo, 2.4L 4 cyl).

Just looked up C&D reviews for the Accord 1.5T manual and CVT, which did 0-60 in 7.2 and 7.3 seconds, respectively. I'm guessing the Integra will weigh nearly the same (Accord CVT was 3298 lbs), but have a bit more HP and the same Torque, so should be maybe a tenth or two faster (still over 7 seconds though).

I wouldn't be surprised to see the CVT Integra having under 7.0 second 0-60 times though, Acura doesn't tune for MPG as much as Honda does. Besides Engine tuning, I would assume the CVT can be tuned as well? I also expect the standard tires to be more performance oriented (but still all-season) on the Integra vs the Accord or Civic which tend to come with Gas Mileage optimized tires.

Yeah good point; and I saw a comment (on this forum I think) from a Honda engineer who said to give the 1.5T w/ CVT Integra a chance because Acura spent a lot of time tuning the powertrain and that people shouldn't write it off without a test drive. I took that with a grain of salt, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was right. My current car does 0-60 in 7.1 seconds and I was looking for more power, so I'd love to see 6.9 seconds (and better low RPM torque).

Anyone seen anything about when to expect reviews coming out from the typical youtube crowd? Curious what the embargo timeline is for driving impressions, etc. Really antsy to see some feedback and video from folks like savagegeese and others.
I think in Raiti’s vid of the Integra he said he’d get to drive it in mid-May. I’m just as curious about when we’ll get reviews!
