The first generation of the Honda/Acura Integra came on the Japanese market in 1985, followed by the international launch in 1986.

By the mid-'80s, Honda tried to get more traction in several markets, especially on U.S. soil. Its previous cars, such as the Civic and the Accord, were appreciated in terms of reliability but lacked the styling or the performance offered by other competitors. But Honda changed that with the Integra.

With its pop-up headlights and two-door fastback design, the Integra became a hit for the Japanese carmaker. An apron that incorporated the fog lights on the lower side continued the narrow front end. The flat and low hood and raked windshield with slim A-pillars offered excellent visibility for the driver. In addition, the tall and wide side windows and even bigger rear windscreen created a bright interior. On top of that, the available sunroof made things even better.

The interior was designed for four adults, yet the rear seats were not that spacious. On the other hand, the front seats offered good side support thanks to their bolstered areas. A low center console sported the gear stick and the handbrake. The driver benefited from the low-mounted dashboard that didn't limit the visibility. At the same time, the small and squared instrument cluster provided the most essential information. In Europe, on the other hand, the car was not available with an AC unit or other modern features. Yet, a tape player was on the options list.

Under the hood, Honda installed low-displacement engines that provided a mere 113 ponies for the most potent version. In Europe, the base unit provided even less than that: 85 hp. Fortunately, the car was light, which led to decent acceleration times.
