A year after its release in Japan as the Honda Integra, the Acura Integra was marketed in North America in 1986. There are five generations of the Acura Integra so far. The first was produced between 1985 and 1989; the second, between 1990 and 1993; the third, between 1994 and 1997; the fourth, between 1998 and 2001 and the fifth, from 2002 to the present. There was also the Acura Type R, which was sold from 1994 until 2001. The first generation Integra was available in 3, 4 or 5-door sedan, carrying a 1.6 L DOHC 16v engine, which was highly-advanced for a car of its class during those times.
Only a three-door hatchback and sedan versions were marketed for the next generation Acura Integra. There were four trim levels available: RS, LS, GS and GS-R. These vehicles were first fitted with a new 1.8 L DOHC engine. The B-series engine was also made available during the period. The Acura Integra were the fist Honda vehicles to have the B-series engine under the hood. This engine produces 130 horsepower and 121 lb-ft of torque. In the succeeding years, the engine was upgraded to yield more power output.
Third generation Integra was distinct and was the most recognizable among the Acura Integras. These set of vehicles were the first and the last to have double wishbone suspension at all four corners of the vehicle. Styling was altered with the vehicle's new headlights and body work. In terms of performance, the third generation Integra is a notch higher than the previous models. Now equipped with a B18B engine, it generates 142 hp at 6300 rpm and 127 lb-ft of torque. The Type R Acura Integra launched in 1997, was the racing version of the Integra. It delivers 195 horses at 8000 rpm, which is bold enough for a car such as the Integra.
Few modifications were made to the 1998 Acura Integra, which included larger headlights, more aggressive front bumper, red taillights, new rear bumper and restyled wheels. Meanwhile, Acura Integra released from 2002 up to the present are referred to as the Acura RSX. These vehicles are far more luxurious and performance—oriented than the previous Integra models.
