(By Tom Lohnes) – Sorry purists, Acura actually wants to sell cars. Yes, the upper half of the all-new Acura Integra has been revealed, and it’s going to be a 5-door “Sportback” with a hatch at the back. Hey, at least it isn’t a crossover, right?
A quick look at this teaser image should tell you the obvious: This car is gorgeous. From the kink in the tail lights to the subtle nods to the old car like the badge being etched into the bumper and the little hole under the badge where you open the hatch, this thing looks incredible.
Based off of the Honda Civic, this sleek machine bears no resemblance at all, which is impressive. By the look of the doors, it looks like they’re going for a frameless design, and if you still aren’t convinced this is a 4-door, take a peek at the B-pillar. Acura actually plainly stated that the new teggy would be a 5-door in their product plan in 2018, so this shouldn’t be a real shocker.
