2023 Acura Integra Revealed as a Premium Performance Gateway for a New Generation
The Integra returns! One of the brand’s most iconic nameplates returns 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.
“The 2023 Acura Integra is serving the same role in the lineup as the original model that helped launch the brand three decades ago by bringing in the next generation of driving enthusiast,” said Emile Korkor, Assistant Vice President, Acura National Sales. “With its engaging driving character, flexible five-door liftback body style and advanced technology and features, the Integra will welcome a host of new buyers to the Acura brand.”
Engine & Performance
Completing Acura’s return to Precision Crafted Performance, the new Integra is powered by a high-output turbocharged engine delivering 200 horsepower and paired with either a segment-exclusive 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). An ultra-rigid body structure and sport tuned chassis are tuned for an exhilarating driving experience.
A standard Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) enables the Integra driver to choose between three distinct driving modes (Comfort, Normal and Sport) for the throttle response, automatic transmission mapping, steering feel and gauge coloration. A-Spec with Technology Package adds adjustments for in-cabin sound, plus an “Individual” mode that allows the driver to customize the IDS setting combinations to their liking.
An available Adaptive Damper System (ADS) gives drivers even more precise control of Integra’s ride and handling performance with distinct damping characteristics for Comfort, Normal and Sport driving modes. Drivers also can customize their driving experience with an Individual mode that allows independent selection of steering, engine response, and suspension firmness for a tailored driving experience at the touch of a button.
The 2023 Integra features sporty and compact proportions inspired by previous Integra models, specifically the original 5-door model that helped launch the Acura brand in 1986. The new Integra combines a coupe-like profile with surprising flexibility thanks to its liftback design. Thin A-pillars and a low cowl create an expansive greenhouse for excellent outward visibility which is also beneficial during spirited driving.
A sophisticated front fascia features a frameless version of Acura’s Diamond Pentagon grille, framed by four JewelEye® LED headlight elements and “Chicane” LED daytime running lights. LED fog lights integrated into the lower fascia are available. An aggressive rear fascia with dual exhaust finishers emphasizes the Integra’s wide track and sporty stance.
An available A-Spec® sport-appearance package pumps up the visual style with a gloss-black window surrounds and front and rear fascia trim. A sporty lip spoiler and A-Spec® badges adorn the front fenders and tailgate. Shark Gray 18-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in larger 235/40R18 all-season performance tires.
Inside, Integra has a sporty and personal cabin featuring high-quality materials and switchgear, with all touch points imparting a premium feel. The climate control vents reflect the diamond mesh pattern of the grille, highlighted by piano-black trim.
Integra’s low cowl, thin pillars and door-mounted exterior mirrors help create exceptional visibility. Rear seat passengers enjoy generous legroom and to support active lifestyles, Integra’s 60/40 split rear seatbacks can be folded flat to flexibly expand the cargo area.
