A novelty from a Japanese manufacturer will appear on the Chinese market.
15 years later, Honda is bringing the Integra name back to life. The Acura Integra liftback has been announced with a sporty styling, but it will not appear in the US until next year. But now the new generation Honda Integra sedan has made its debut in the Chinese market. In fact, this is not a completely independent model, but only a variation of the new Honda Civic. But, in accordance with historical traditions, the developers tried to make the Integra model a little more sporty than the original.
Outside, the new Chinese Honda Integra differs from the Civic in bumpers and optics, and the new product will have the largest rims – 18-inch instead of 17-inch. With this set, the car began to look more aggressive than the original. The new plumage practically did not affect the size of the car: the length increased by a symbolic 1 mm (up to 4675 mm). Optionally, you can order a sports styling package: spoiler on the luggage compartment lid, black mirror caps, and matte moldings instead of chrome.
Changes in the interior of the novelty are at the level of decor: the Integra model can have body-colored lining on the front panel or contrasting inserts on the seats. In terms of equipment, there are no differences from the Chinese Civic: virtual instruments, a media system with a 9-inch display, a sunroof or a full panoramic roof. If the Honda Civic is offered in China with two versions of the 1.5 turbo unit with a capacity of 129 or 182 hp, then the Integra will get only the version with a return of 182 hp. And besides the CVT, which has no alternative in the Civic, it will be possible to order a six-speed manual transmission.
Another difference between the two models will be the release location. The Civic for China is produced at the Dongfeng-Honda joint venture, and the Integra will enter the assembly line of the GAC-Honda joint venture. Similarly, in China, the names Inspire (now an analogue of the Accord) and Avancier (the twin of the UR-V crossover) have already been brought back to life. It is planned that the Honda Integra will be slightly more expensive than similar modifications of the Civic. Sales of new items will start in December.
