2000 Acura Integra Review

A gem, but a neglected one.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The 2000 Acura Integra classifies as a compact luxury coupe and sedan manufactured and sold by Acura. The Integra has repeatedly been part of the annual Ten Best list made by Car and Driver magazine right from its introduction to the American market in 1986.

The car debuted in 1985 in Japan and a year later in North America as part of the lineup of cars by Acura. The 2000 Acura Integra falls in the third generation, which began in 1994 with a radical redesign.

The Range

Body Styles: three-door hatchback, four-door hardtop
Engines: 1.8-liter B18B I-4, 1.8-liter B18B1 I-4, I.8-liter B18C I-4
Transmissions: four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Acura Integra LS, Acura Integra GS, Acura Integra GS-R, Acura Integra Type R

What's New

This model year sees the reentry of the Integra Type R, the performance-tuned version of the 2000 Acura Integra and the pinnacle of the Integra line. All models come in two new color options, and the four-speed automatic transmission gets better shift quality. All models for this year also get a tune-up after an interval of 100,000 miles.

Exterior

The 2000 Acura Integra underwent its last major exterior redesign in 1994, making it one of the oldest cars in its category. The age of the Integra shows all too well in its design. Its unusual front-end design with the four headlights makes things even worse.

The hatchback version of the 2000 Acura Integra has a wheelbase of 101.2 inches, while the sedan version sits on a wheelbase of 103.1 inches. The length for the hatchback measures 172.4 inches and the sedan is 178.1 inches.

Interior

All models of the 2000 Acura Integra come standard with a complete set of convenience features, including a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, air-conditioning, a power moonroof, and power locks and windows. The GS and GS-R get standard leather upholstery too, and all sedan models have a one-piece foldable rear seatback for increased trunk space.

The controls up front look simple, intuitive, and convenient, and the seats offer abundant space for most adults, although tall occupants may find themselves a little cramped. The sunroof reduces the headroom for occupants taller than six feet.

The back seat of the coupe only suits children. Adults cannot enter, sit on, or exit the back seat comfortably. However, the sedan version has more legroom even though it lacks in shoulder width and headroom for three adults to sit comfortably.

Performance & Handling

The 2000 Acura Integra GS and LS models come fitted with the base engine of the Integra line: a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that delivers 140 horsepower. The GS-R uses a VTEC-enhanced, 1.8-liter engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the Type R model gets its power from a modified 1.8-liter engine that delivers 195 horsepower at 8000 rpm.

The modifications on the engine in the Type R model include hand-polished exhaust and intake ports and a high-flow exhaust system. The Integra line betrays the luxury image of the Acura with its sporty and athletic performance. All the engines rev freely with little resistance, although it lacks power at low speeds with the automatic transmission installed. The manual transmission models shine more in this case.

All models of the Integra, including the Type R, feel comfortable, controlled, and fun to drive with sharp steering and negligible body lean. Although the car gets louder than other Acura cars, the engine noise hardly bothers drivers.

Safety

Government crash test results remain unavailable for the 2000 Acura Integra.

EPA Fuel Economy
