The Acura Integra is a compact sports sedan model produced and sold by the Honda Motor Company through the luxury Acura marque. Also sold as the Honda Civic, the Honda Integra, and the Acura RSX, the Integra was discontinued in 2006, but a new 2023 model year is expected to arrive in America in 2022.
The Acura Integra debuted in Japan in 1985 as the Honda Quint Integra and was designed as a successor to the Honda Quint subcompact liftback. A year later, the model was brought to America and joined the new Acura luxury brand lineup. It functioned as the luxury counterpart to the Honda Civic.
The original run of the Integra lasted four generations, with its last generation marketed as the Acura RSX. Despite positive reception, the Acura Integra/RSX was discontinued due to low demand and expensive production costs. However, the Integra nameplate was recently revived with a prototype debuting in late 2021 and a release planned for 2022. Expected rivals of the new Integra include the Hyundai Elantra N, the Subaru WRX, and the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Jetta GLI.

- Pros: The Acura Integra/RSX compact sports sedan offers suitable and efficient performance engine options, provides excellent handling and driving dynamics, and its interior is a clean and no-nonsense cabin.
- Cons: The Integra’s exterior is a bit bland for a luxury-esque model, its cabin lacks headroom, and it’s missing a lot of standard technology found in its rivals.
