Overview

by Honda Acura luxury division will soon relaunch an iconic nameplate and rock the entry-level compact segment with a all new Integra, replacing old ILX sedan in the lineup. Some may wonder why a luxury automaker would choose to launch a sports car in the SUV era, but we’d be quick to remind them that the Integra is a big part of what made the Acura brand. The new machine will be offered with a six-speed manual (an automatic will be optional) and shares its foundations with the new Honda Civic. The Integra comes with the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s in the Civic Si, but we’re hoping for an even more cheerful powerplant in a revived Type S model. And in the future, who knows? Maybe there will be a Acura Integra Type R reminiscent of the limited edition screamer of the late nineties.

What’s new for 2023?

Acura’s revamped Integra will be a completely new model for 2023 and we are told that production will begin in 2022.

Price and which one to buy

    Acura claims to aim for a starting price of around $ 30,000 for the base Integra. If a racy S-type model is indeed in the cards, we expect it to cost significantly more than a standard Integra. We’ll find out more about the Integra’s powertrain, pricing, and standard and optional features closer to the car’s sales date, and update this story with details when we have them.

    Engine, transmission and performance

    Acura said the new Integra will be powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine borrowed from the Civic Si, but the company hasn’t released a horsepower figure. We expect at least 200 hp from this mill and buyers will be able to choose between a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive will likely be the only setup, but the Integra will come standard with a limited-slip differential.
