Depending on the size of the motor, and yes, 2 doors with a 6cyl or higher is considered sports car.

Depends on the insurance company. Their definitions vary.

If it's a 2-door (and especially if there is a 4-door variant), many companies will call it a sports car. This way, they can charge you higher premiums. However, it really depends on the company and how they define "sports car."Good luck!

It probably is considered a sports car. Does it have pretty high horsepower, a V6? Insurance companies look at that. Also Integras have always been a target of thieves cause they can easily be modified. The also like to take the engine out of them and put in the lighterweight Civic's body for racing. That may make insurance rates be a bit higher, too. But it'll be a fun car to drive.

whether it is or not, the insurance will be high regardless. The integra is a great car, and very popular. It is very popular among theives as well. And it's involved in a lot of street racing. It's easy to modify and make it go fast with relatively small amount of money. That's why insurance is so high because of the the theft rates and it's prevalence in accidents and tickets. If you do get it, keep it looking stock, you don't want an integra sticking out like a sore thumb.

It really depends on the insurance company. People say if it's 2 doors, it's a sports car. o.0 But for an integra, insurance is pretty high. REASONS: high revving careasily moddedtarget for theivessporty looking etc etcAND WHY is everyone saying it's a V6? To clear things up, an integra is NOT a V6. It has a B18B1 (RS, LS, SE, GS) NON-VTEC, B18C1 (GS-R) DOHC VTEC, B18C5 (TYPE-R) DOHC VTEC. It's an I-4, 140, 170, 195hp car. NOT a V6.Anyway, it depends on how the company looks at it. My company states it as a "sporty car"
