Actually interested in this. I was thinking the other day about the Integra, actually, and if it would ever make a comeback. I've always wanted one as a kid. I'm planning to trade in next year, around Spring when I (hopefully) graduate, so this is good timing.
Yeah. I want to like both 11th gen body styles like some folks do, but I keep ending up disliking them more. As others have mentioned, they've gotten better in some aspects like tech, but now seeing that they've apparently detuned the engine and downgraded engine options, it's really sad to see...
I've always wanted parking sensors as I live in a city with lots of tight traffic and parking, so to me, upgrading to the Touring just for those would be enough. But from what it sounds like you want, I think you'll be fine with the EX. The EX is most likely going to be the volume seller.
I believe I remember seeing some folks dyno stock Tourings/Civics with the 1.5T and it was cranking more near 200hp and higher torque. The power in this gen must be more accurate to their advertisement.
