2023 Acura Integra Returns | Safety & Performance
The 2023 Integra returns one of the brand’s most iconic nameplates to the Acura Lineup!
The new Integra delivers a premium, exhilarating driving experience and a sleek liftback design to a new generation of enthusiast drivers. The all-new model will arrive at dealers this Spring with a starting price of about $30,000, to become the new performance gateway of the Acura brand.
Driver Assist & Safety Technology
Integra’s standard AcuraWatch™ suite of driver assistive and safety technologies features an all-new, single-camera system with a wide field of view and long range. Using the new single-camera system, Collision Mitigation Braking System can distinguish between vehicles, pedestrians, and even bicycles. It also includes functionality such as:
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Traffic Jam Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist
More safety features include:
- Blind Spot Information System (standard)
- Rear Cross-Traffic Monitoring (standard)
- Rear Parking Sensors
- Low-Speed Braking Control
Safety as Design
As with every Acura model, the Integra benefits from Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. The ACE body structure is designed for improved crash compatibility between vehicles of varying sizes, such as an SUV and a small car, and occupant protection in angled frontal collisions. A new upper A-pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure are all engineered to route crash energy around the cabin, rather than through it.
Integra also features a segment-first new generation of driver and passenger front airbags, specifically designed to cradle the head and reduce the risk of brain injury, especially in offset collisions. The aluminum hood features an embossed inner structure that will distribute the force of an impact with a pedestrian’s head in the event of a collision to reduce the likelihood of injury.
Engine & Performance
Under Integra’s aluminum hood is a VTEC®-enhanced DOHC 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 200 horsepower (SAE net @ 6,000 rpm) and 192 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net @ 1,800 – 5,000 rpm). A new coil type exhaust system adds an emotional exhaust sound that further enhances Integra’s engaging driving experience.
Tuned specifically for the high-output turbocharged engine, Integra’s standard CVT automatic transmission responds quickly to throttle inputs and Step Shift programming simulates gear changes when accelerating. For added driver control, steering wheel-mounted shifter paddles are standard.
An available segment-exclusive 6-speed manual transmission dials up the engagement even further. The short-throw, close-ratio 6-speed features automatic rev matching for the ultimate in precision driving. To maximize available traction when accelerating out of corners, power is routed through a helical limited-slip differential in manual transmission-equipped vehicles.
