2024 Acura Integra was my 8th Acura. Acura cars were meeting the expectations and always felt as you are driving a good car. Not the new Integra. The price went up significantly and car deteriorated at the same rate. New Integra is very hard in driving. You can feel every smallest bump on the road and crossing a railroad track is a torture. it is missing some very basic features like Home Link, seat memory and many many many other. The interior has nothing to do with luxury. I could not handle all these changes and got rid of the car.
I totaled my 2022 Kia Forte GT so I was in the market for a new car, at the time most cars were selling over sticker but I was able to get the Integra at sicker. (now I know why) this car is not worth the premium price tag even at MSRP. The built quality is worse than any other car I’ve owned. The whole interior rattles, and I mean everything rattles and to imperfections in the paint from factory. The backup camera resolution is awful looks to be from 2011, at highway speeds the car is incredibly loud, everyone raves about the ELS sound system but its hard to tell since the door panels rattle with the slightest base.
My previous 2022 Kia forte GT would be considered in the same class- sporty, same size and HP, but my Forte was a far superior car at half the price. It was quiet, no rattles, backup camera and infotainment was way head of Acura, cooled seats, rear ac vents, actual ambient lightning that change colors, and a spare tire-things the Integra is missing but should have at this price point. I recently went to try and trade it in and the value has tanked my dealer said they can’t even get rid of them on the lot. If you’re in the market for a fun sporty car, I would look at the Forte GT, just an overall better car and more engaging to drive.
MSRP Range: $31,500 – $50,800
