    Acura debuted the second generation Integra in 1990, now powered by a new 1.8 L engine making 130 hp, giving the model a necessary boost in performance. The three-door hatchback and 4-door sedan body styles continued to be available, but the 5-door hatchback was discontinued due to poor market reception.

    Trim levels for 1990 and 1991 included the RS (base model), LS, and GS. The 1991 GS could also be had with a leather interior, which made it a sort of "deluxe" model, and featured its own model number.

    For 1992, Acura added the GS-R trim level, powered by a stroked 1.6 L version of the very successful B16a engine already in use in the Japanese-market Integra. It featured a VTEC system, as found in the then-new NSX, bumping output to 160 hp. Other features exclusive to the GS-R include the charcoal grey cloth interior (leather as a rare option), body-colored trim and front lip, and the third brake light mounted in the spoiler. Sunroof, power everything, and 14 in 6-spoke aluminum wheels came standard as well.

    Other small updates came on to all trim levels in 1992, namely new front and rear bumpers, a new steering wheel, new taillights, new ECU, chromed interior door handles and an increase in power to 140 hp for the non-VTEC engine.

    The second generation was the last Integra to be sold without airbags in the United States. Motorized passive seat belts were used instead. Canada and the rest of the world got regular active seat belts.

    This generation also saw Acura make a bit of a marketing shift. Prior to the 1991 model year, Acura had made a minor point of the supposed understated elegance of minimal exterior badging. Therefore, from 1986 to 1990, the only external clues to any Integra's identity came at the rear, where badges for "Acura" "Integra", and the trim level appeared. For the 1991 model year however, Acura's "A" logo appeared for the very first time on the front of the hood, as well as between the taillights. Every Integra made since then has had the "A" badges. 262,285 units were sold from 1990 to 1993.

    AND ALSO IN WHITE....

    THE 92-93 USDM GSR DID NOT COME WITH A 1.6L VTEC...IT WAS A B17A1, A 1.7L VTEC ENGINE ONLY FOR THE UNITED STATES.

    WAYS TO IDENTIFY A 2ND GEN GSR:

    1. AS MENTIONED ABOVE VTEC FENDER MOLDING
    2. NO BRAKE LIGHT ON WINDSHIELD...BUT ONLY ON WING
    3. COLOR: FROST WHITE, AZTEC GREEN, AND MILANO RED.NO BLACK
    4. RPM GAUGE 8000RPM RED LINE
    5. VIN: DB2 AND NOT DA9
