Many automotive enthusiasts cherished the Acura Integra for its excellent performance and superb handling during its initial run from 1985 to 2006. Now, after more than a decade-and-a-half hiatus, the Integra returns. Find out about the release date, price, specs, and features of the all-new 2023 Acura Integra.
When will the 2023 Acura Integra be released and available?
According to Acura, the release date of the 2023 Acura Integra will be in Spring 2022. The 2023 Integra will be available for sale at Acura dealerships throughout the United States. Customers can place an order for the 2023 Integra starting on March 10, 2022. For the initial reservations, only a limited number of Integra models will be available.
How much does the 2023 Acura Integra cost?
Acura stated that the 2023 Integra will have a starting price of around $30,000 for the base model. The automaker didn’t yet say what trims it will release or the cost beyond the base model. However, there is a possibility that a higher-priced and racy Type S model will be available.
2023 Acura Integra specs: Similar engine as the Honda Civic Si
The 2023 Integra will have a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine similar to the one that’s in the 2022 Honda Civic Si. Acura didn’t yet release the official specs of the engine, but it will likely have an output of at least 200 hp.
Acura clearly designed the 2023 Integra for driving purists, for it has a standard six-speed manual transmission. If you can’t drive stick, the Integra will also offer an available automatic transmission. All Integra models will likely have a front-wheel drive system, but a limited-slip differential will also be a standard feature.
New design of the 2023 Integra
The 2023 Integra, which replaces the ILX in the Acura lineup, garnered some strong opinions. Some criticize it as a Honda Civic with frills, while others praise it as an inspired revival of the Integra nameplate. Notable exterior design features include:
- Frameless Diamond Pentagon grille
- JewelEye LED headlights
- Chicane LED daytime running lights
- Muscular rear wheel arches
- Dual-exhaust finishers
The Integra Prototype that Acura debuted last year has matte-finish 19-inch split-five wheels. It also has large Brembo high-performance brakes with color-keyed Indy Yellow calipers. The Yellow Pearl exterior paint color on the Integra Prototype is a nod to the Phoenix Yellow hue on the 2001-2002 Integra Type R.
Additionally, the Integra Prototype has High-gloss Berlina Black accents on the front grille, roof, mirror caps, rear diffuser, and decklid spoiler. On the side of the Integra Prototype, there is a lower-sill graphic with the Integra name.
Where is the Acura Integra built?
The 2023 Acura Integra was designed in Japan. However, the 2023 Integra will be the first Integra model built in the U.S. The production of the 2023 Integra is at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, alongside the Acura TLX.
