The new 2023 Integra has a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine similar to the one that’s in the 2022 Honda Civic Si. It has an output of 200 horsepower. 

Acura clearly designed the 2023 Integra for driving purists, for it has a standard six-speed manual transmission. If you can’t drive stick, then don’t worry, for the Integra also offers an available automatic transmission. Also, all Integra models have a front-wheel drive system, a limited-slip differential, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

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 is 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.

As covered earlier, the redesigned 2023 Acura Integra luxury compact car was released in June 2022. Also, the 2023 Integra has a starting price of $30,800 MSRP.
