The Honda Integra needs no introduction despite the fact this is the first one we've had come through here. While fundamentally similar to the ones we saw stateside, Japan kept the better of the two front ends to themselves. The initial "spider eye" look wasn't well received in Japan so come '95 they went ahead and revamped the styling to the now-iconic front end everyone swaps over to here stateside. The paint and body are in fantastic shape for being 26-years-old, especially when you compare them to a comparable stateside one. Finished in Mystic Blue Pearl (B80P) it's a fantastic choice in colors as it accents the bodywork nicely without sticking out like a sore thumb. The paint shows particularly well with only a few little typical blemishes like some stone chips that anything will accrue with highway use. The body is in just as good a shape with only your typical door ding or two to report. Then again, coming in with only 26K verified miles you'll be hard-pressed to find another one in this condition.
The interior is just as clean as you would think a 26K mile car would be. Even the high-use items like the original wheel and gear selector look nearly new. The seats are well-bolstered for eating up highway miles in comfort. All four seats are free of any discoloration, bolster wear or even routine stains. Another issue we anticipate seeing some distortion to the expansive dash from sun damage over the years but the Integra has even been spared from that. It's obvious that someone took really good care of this car back in Japan. The only blemish on the dash are two small spots near the A-pillar on both sides where it looks like a set of tweeters may have been mounted at some point, but that's nit-picking, to say the least. The original radio functions to the best of its ability here stateside and the speakers are surprisingly clear for their age. Luckily you can swap out the head unit to either a factory US one or any number of aftermarket options with all of the new features like Bluetooth and Carplay. These came equipped with automatic climate control which was a rather standard thing in Japan, however, wasn't much of a thing stateside at the time. Both heat and A/C are primed to make this an ideal candidate for a new daily driver. They even have the 1 piece window visors for days when you'd rather have the fresh air but the weather isn't as cooperative. Naturally, you've got power windows for each door along with power windows and locks to match.
Under the hood is Honda's tried and true D16 ZC. The non-VTEC SOHC ZC is similar to the D16A6 engine, but with more aggressive cam timing. These were only used with the JDM vehicles hence the slight variation from what was marketed stateside. The 1.6L is plenty peppy for highway use and even kicks back some solid MPGs. Mated to an automatic trans it makes for the ideal daily driver. The trans engages with ease and has no problem running through the gears. The factory brakes are more than capable of bringing you down safely from highway speeds without being too touchy around town. The stock suspension is plenty soft of crappy roads without feeling like a boat if you take an off-ramp a little quicker than you anticipated. As you may have already guessed by the overall condition this one came in needing little to get it back up to speed. Fresh rubber on all four corners means you won't have any issues with grip for quite some time to come. A fresh battery lets the 4 cylinder turn over with hardly any effort. The 1.6L makes plenty of useable power throughout the rev range despite the lack of VTEC. Finding clean Hondas these days are becoming increasingly challenging, whether here or abroad. Don't let this opportunity slip by for such an incredibly clean, low mileage, bulletproof sedan. After all, Honda is known for its reliability. Since these were sold stateside parts are a breeze to track down, so you shouldn't have any issues with this car for years to come!
