      Probably because it would blow up when driven hard, like most tuner crap from that era.

      That, and it's probably an unruly beast due to turbo lag and poor traction.
      I do dig the asymmetrical graphic on the front way more than I exacted.

      The Vigors like that too. The rear door is too narrow for the entire full glass to track down. That’s why most rear doors have the rear split/wing window to make the glass narrower so it can roll completely down.

      I loved the Diamonte. So much tech for the early 90s.

      Ok.
      Did ANY naturally aspirated four banger sedan post better acceleration and braking numbers in a MW test.. evAr?
      Those are still very good numbers.
      The new GLI Jetta is a bit quicker and stop a bit shorter.. but it's turbo 2.0 and has much bigger tires.
      (granted, it's also 400lbs heavier)
      That Integra GRS sedan was a high water mark... but also a bit expensive- for a four banger front drive.

      Manual Integras in any form were impossible to find up here in the late 90s/early 2000s.
      You were lucky to find a GSR sedan.

      What do you mean by this?

      I was a junior in college, and bought the car at an auction. It was lowered with aftermarket wheels, an exhaust, different tail lights, and nothing inside worked. It was your typical modded late Japanese Honda/Acura. So to most it just "looked" I was driving around with a screwdriver in the ignition I guess.

      ^

      Those Stylus were rare and cool cars.
      Did they ever sell them with the turbo here?

      Still.. at that as tested price, a Mazda Protege LX or Escort GT/LX-E were probably batter values (similar performance and price with more room/refinement... tho the Stylus does come very well equipped at that price).

      Isuzu was hit really hard by the early 90s pacific rim economic crash.
      They dropped cars altogether and focused on commercial and SUVs.
      Sad.. they made some interesting affordable cars.

      Yes, and AWD. But the big deal in their marketing was that it had an airbag. Fancy.

      The Protege/Escort used a 1.8 that was a variant of the Miata's engine, right?
