Honda's Acura luxury division will soon relaunch an iconic nameplate and shake up the entry-luxury compact segment with an all-new Integra. Some may wonder why a luxury automaker would choose to launch a sporty hatchback in the age of the SUV, but we'd be quick to remind them that the Integra is a big part of what made the Acura brand. We expect the Integra to be fully unveiled in 2022 and go on sale shortly after, likely as a 2023 model. The new car will probably share its underpinnings with the all-new Honda Civic, but we're expecting a perkier standard powertrain, an available manual transmission, and perhaps a Type S trim with more power. Acura's few official teaser photos show very little, but we know that the Integra will be offered as a four-door hatchback which means it's likely replace the aging ILX sedan in the lineup. But Acura could very well introduce an Integra coupe later on. And in the future, who knows? Maybe there will be an Acura Integra Type R that recalls the limited-edition screamer of the late Nineties.
What's New for 2023?
Acura's revived Integra will be an all new model for 2023 and we have been told production will start in 2022.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Without more information from Acura, we're guessing on pricing but if they do decide to launch a racy Type S model, we expect it to cost significantly more than a standard Integra. We will find out more about the Integra's powertrain, pricing, and standard and optional features closer to car's on-sale date and will update this story with details when we get them.
