Is an Acura Integra considered a sports car for insurance purposes?
I just purchased a used 2006 Acura Integra, but I wasn't sure of the insurance costs. Do insurance companies consider it a sports car?

“The Acura Integra was produced from 1986 to 2006 and marketed as a sporty vehicle to younger drivers. But despite its sporty looks, it’s not exactly a race car, touting about 150 horsepower for the base trim.
That said, the body of the vehicle isn’t what makes it a sports car. It’s all about engine power, and because the Integra doesn’t tout huge power numbers, you probably won’t have to pay sports car rates.
Shop for car insurance quotes online and you can get a better idea of which companies do or don’t classify the Integra as a sports car.”
