1993 Acura Integra- Introduction
The 1993 Integra 3-door and 4-door sports sedans are sophisticated, technologically advanced, aerodynamically styled and designed around the driver. They have the first-class accommodations and high quality that have become synonymous with Acura, yet continue to project the sporty and youthful image associated with the Integra name.
The starting point for the Honda R&D designerswho created the secondgeneration Integra was to build on the considerable strengths of the original design, concentrating on every area from styling to performance.
CONCEPTS AND GOALS
The 1993 Integra sports sedans were designed to achieve:
- Spirited engine performance, with excellent acceleration, sporty, free-revving response, and top-level smoothness and flexibility.
- Crisp, precise handling with good driver feedback and accurate steering.
- Sporty, aerodynamic styling witb low wind noise and high efficiency.
- A rigid structure for accurate handling, impressive long-term durability, excellent corrosion protection and high occupant safety
- An ergonomic, low-stress driving environment.
The 1993 Integra sports sedans are subtly refined developments of the second generation Integra models originally introduced for the 1990 model year. Compared to their first-generation predecessors, they are longer, lower, wider and have more cargo space. With the exception of the GS-R, all Integra models feature a 140-hp,1.8- liter, DOHC engine, 4-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension and advanced technology like the available Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). The GS-R, with its 160-hp, 1.7-liter, VTEC-equipped engine offers even more performance. They are true performance cars for serious drivers.
The 1993 Integra comes in two body styles, 3-doo rand 4-door sedan. The 3-door is a sports-oriented hatchback designed to appeal to people who enjoy spirited driving. The 4-door is in the European sports sedan tradition in that it offers performance, clean stylish looks and family style versatility.
Both Integra body configurations are fully equipped with a broad range of standard features which include speed-sensitive, variable power-assisted, rack-and pinion steering, 4-wheel disc brakes, tinted glass, and numerous comfort and convenience items.
Three distinct trim levels are available, in both the 3-door and 4-door body styles: RS, LS and GS. The GS-R and LS Special are only available in a 3-door configuration. The LS Special features leather-trimmed seats, cast aluminum alloy wheels, Michelin XGT-V4 tires, body-colored side mouldings, a rear spoiler and a special emblem as standard equipment. GS 3- and 4-door models and GS-R models include such standard features as an Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), alloy wheels, audiophile sound system, a power moonroof and, in the 3-door sedan, a rear spoiler.
