A name that is back with the intention of stealing market from Premium brands at the entry level of the segment. Under a new body configuration, turbocharged engine and a very complete level of equipment, Acura introduced to Integrate in Mexico.
Styled like a five-door liftback, this model stands as the entry point to the Acura family. It comes to replace ILX and to be placed below the TLX, a sedan of larger dimensions and benefits that stands out mainly for its sporty performance thanks to its 2-liter turbo engine and its 261 horsepower.
To complement the offer, the Integra uses the platform of the Honda Civic, a guarantee of good handling and balance at the wheel. It is 4,735 millimeters long by 1,410 millimeters high and 1,829 millimeters wide. It maintains elements of the manufacturer’s identity, such as the headlights with the finish JewelEyethe three-dimensional grille and the aggressive lines that are found throughout the body and give it an athletic touch.
The wheels are 18”, on the tailgate there is a small spoiler and the fall of the roof, at the rear, gives it a unique and sporty look. In addition, the equipment includes a electric sunroof of 3 positions.
While it shares a number of elements with its Civic cousin, Acura has given the Integra a different character by including materials with a slightly better look and feel inside. For me, the elements that deserve special attention are the seats, since in the front seats a high level of support is experienced as well as integration with the car. Its electrical adjustments and its ability to reach almost flush with the ground, improve the driving position. The board is digital with a very clear presentation of information.
The steering wheel, with a style very similar to that of the Honda sedan, has a perfect thickness as well as the integration of various controls. On the board, the honeycomb molding was inherited directly from the Civic, although in this case it is made of aluminum. The central screen is color, touch screen with a 9” surface and integrates Apple Car Play Y Android Wireless Cars. It’s followed by an Elliot Scheiner audio system, wireless charger, USB ports, and a selector to choose one of four drive modes that modify suspension and steering harshness as well as throttle and transmission response.
Thanks to Acura Watch, Integra has a complete safety suite that includes Heavy Traffic Assistant, Automatic Light Change System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Braking Alert, Lane Keeping System, among others. that add 10 air bags, ABS brakes, among others.
The only “but” of the powertrain is in the CVT transmission that makes its 200 horsepower feel “drowsy”. The 1.5-liter turbo engine also generates 192 lb-ft of torque.
