2024 Acura Integra Type S Costs a Lot More Than the Civic Type R
Acura has announced pricing for the new Type S version of the Integra.
It starts at $51,995, compared with the closely related Honda Civic Type R's $44,890 starting price.
Reservations will open May 11, which will allow buyers to reserve one of the first 200 units.
Predictably but perhaps disappointingly, the new 2024 Acura Integra Type S will carry a considerable price premium over its sibling the Honda Civic Type R. The Acura hot hatch will start at $51,995, or $7105 more than the mechanically similar Civic. Both cars have a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine, a six-speed manual transmission, and a limited-slip differential, but there are some differences between the two other than the exterior and interior styling.
Most notably, the Integra does offer plenty of extra standard equipment that partially explains the price differential. It comes with heated front seats, a head-up display, a 16-speaker ELS audio system, and a power driver's seat—all features that aren't offered on the Civic Type R. The Integra Type S also offers a bit more horsepower, with its turbo-four producing 320 horsepower to the Civic's 315 hp.
We don't anticipate the Integra Type S will offer any standalone options other than premium colors. Most exterior paint options cost $600 extra on the standard Integra, and on the TLX and MDX Type S models, so the Integra Type S should follow a similar formula. Acura says that the Type S will come in white, blue, red, and the same gold Tiger Eye Pearl hue offered on the TLX and MDX, but the configurator tool should be available soon.
Acura will offer the chance to reserve one of the first 200 Integra Type S models set to arrive in the U.S. These reservations will open at 1 p.m. Eastern time on May 11 at Acura.com/Integra and the cars will start arriving at dealerships sometime in June.
