Talking Cars (MP3)

Acura has resurrected the Integra nameplate, as the classic five-door hatchback returns with an upscale vibe. We share our first impressions on the 2023 Acura Integra, discuss how it performed around our test track, if the interior lives up to the Acura's quality standards, and what sets it apart from the very similar Honda Civic Si. We also debate whether the Integra should be treated as a first year model, or whether it is okay to purchase because many of its components are carried over from the previously released Civic Si.
