GAC Honda has MIIT certified the new Honda Integra sedan. The four-door in many ways repeats the “eleventh” Civic, which, unlike the “tenth” hatchback, is not available in the PRC market. The 1.5 petrol turbo four (182 hp, 240 Nm) migrated to the Integra unchanged, like the variator. Outside of China, the public is waiting for the Acura Integra coupe, but another company, Dongfeng Honda, is preparing it.
The grille, headlights, lights and bumpers of the Integra are new, which is why the length has grown by 15 mm: 4689x1802x1415, the wheelbase is 2735 mm. The hood, doors with embossing at the bottom and the contour of the glazing are familiar from the American Civic. Wheel diameter – 17 or 18 inches.
At the back, along with the lights and the bumper, the trunk lid has been replaced: in the absence of the lower LED sections, it has a rounded area for the license plate. The 240 Turbo nameplate confirms the torque. The Civic also has a fin antenna and a sunroof.
Spy shots of the Integra coupe appeared on Instagram. In addition to them, there is nothing on the DC7_Integra account. Acura’s press office told Motor1.com that this is “a photoshop by an experienced artist.”
It turns out that for the Chinese, the revived Integra (1985-2006) will become a Honda sedan, and for the Americans – a coupe from Acura. And both options will be unified in one way or another with the Civic. If the pictures of the two-door are not fake, the sports car has the right to count on the unit from the hot hatch Civic Type R with a capacity of 310-320 hp. At the same time, you can console fans of the Honda S2000 roadster. True, the intrigue will be resolved in 2022.
