Integra Type S Has More Power Than Civic Type RAcura
  • Acura has confirmed power figures for the 2024 Integra Type S hot hatchback.

  • It has the same turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four as the Honda Civic Type R, but makes 5 horsepower extra, for a total of 320 hp.

  • The Integra Type S will make its official debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in April.

Acura is ensuring that the 2024 Integra Type S will maintain bragging rights over its Civic Type R sibling by giving it a slight edge in horsepower. The turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four will make 320 hp, 5 hp more than the Honda, and the same 310 pound-feet of torque. And we now know that we won't have to wait much longer for its official debut, which will take place at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach during the weekend of April 14–16.

A few new teaser photos give us another look at the Type S model's modified bodywork. We previously saw the Type S in prototype form with camouflage (pictured at top) when we got a chance to drive this hotted-up Integra for the first time. It has a wider body, larger wheels and tires, a rear spoiler, and looks a whole lot meaner than the base car. Acura also released a teaser video with an enticing clip of the Type S's exhaust note.

Like the Civic Type R, the Integra Type S will be offered only with a six-speed manual transmission. A limited-slip differential will also be standard. We're not sure how much the extra 5 hp will affect the Integra's acceleration times at the track, where the Civic Type R achieved a 60 mph sprint of 4.9 seconds in our hands. But we're looking to getting behind the wheel of the latest Integra to see what it can do.
