In the interests of transparency, if you don't believe that an owner's perspective of a Honda Integra Type R can be in any way impartial, click away to another page now. However, if you feel that the view of someone who has tested and reviewed thousands of cars during a career spanning 32 years (I haven't been found out yet) then stick around. https://www.hagerty.com/media/car-profiles/honda-integra-type-r-vs-honda-civic-type-r/
The reason I like the Integra Type R the best is for a few reasons. That interior is so clean and business like. The Civic is so busy and over done in comparison. 8900 rpm on a car anyone could own. You have to rev it out to truly enjoy it. Yes I wish it had another 70+ horsepower and torque but it is fun. The exterior is so clean and good looking. I used to joke about the Integra's flashlight face headlights, but it has aged well.
The Civic Type R is obviously quicker, better handling, etc but I can't get past the looks. Having said that it is an amazing fast car that has probably one of the best chassis in any car right now.
