Interesting you mention that, since if you compare them side-by-side how similar the old Integra is to the new civic, yet the civic is getting 5-7mpg higher. Then again, it is 5 more years of technology
The newer Civic does, in fact, offer similar mileage to the Integra. The difference is the up-front cost, configuration, and transmission:
  1. My review includes a 10-year old vehicle, thus cheaper to purchase
  2. The Civic does not currently offer a 3-door with the cargo capacity (either 2- or 4-Doors), and...
  3. The 5-speed option in either vehicle is available (I reviewed the 4-speed auto)...

The newer Civic probably emits less -- it all depends on your budget and the consideration of the amount of energy it takes to manufacture and transport a new vehicle vs. a used one...
