The hotly anticipated Acura Integra is finally back in Acura’s roster. Despite carrying a Honda badge in Japan, and a different name at launch, the Acura Integra made its way to the United States in 1986. Helping launch Acura in the US, the Integra became a staple in the company’s portfolio and was loved by fans who wanted a little more than the pedestrian Civic. The Integra also was one of the only ways Americans could get something similar to the Honda Civic Type R.
The Integra Type R has become wildly collectible since it went away, and it helped anchor Acura as an enthusiast brand. The reborn Integra doesn’t have a Type R variant yet, but the Type S is expected. Instead, the ’23 Integra uses the same 1.5-liter turbocharged I4 from the Civic Si. Similarly, this upscale compact comes with a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT, depending on how you want the power to reach the front wheels.
On this episode of Quick Spin, Associate Editor Emmet White hops behind the wheel of the ’23 Acura Integra and puts it through its paces. He takes you on a guided tour of the Integra and highlights its styling, features, and more. Later, White takes you along for a live drive review and then chats with host Wesley Wren about the Integra, what separates it from the Civic Si, and if it lives up to the hype. Closing the show, the pair break down what makes this new Integra special.
