Honda Integra Type-S

The successor to the cult-classic Honda Integra is finally here in its 5th generation after a decade's absence. The Integra is a sports-coupé designed to appeal to keen drivers and imbue some youthful energy into the soulless Honda line-up.

Like previous Integras, the latest generation of the car will be based on the front-engine, front-drive platform of the contemporary Honda Civic. As well as the standard car, there is a sportier Type-S model (shown), and a range-topping Type-R model.

The styling of the car is uniquely Japanese. The front end is low and dominated by a large V-shaped grill. The side of the car is angular and futuristic, with a rising waistline leading up to NSX-style flying buttresses for the C-pillars and a floating roof.
