2023 Acura Integra: It will be a five-door hatchback

Acura's new Integra has a lot to do to live up to its name, but its looks shouldn't be a problem

  • Acura is bringing back the Integra to replace its ILX compact sedan

  • The Integra name was used for Acura’s smallest car from 1987 to 2001 in Canada

  • The 2023 Integra will be a 5-door hatchback, like it was in the 80s

Acura recently made headlines when it announced the much loved Integra name was coming back to its lineup for 2023.

An image published at the time showed the car’s front bumper which featured the model’s name molded in the plastic, a nod to the last generation of the car that was sold in North America from 1994 to 2001.

Another announcement accompanied by a second picture came from Acura today, confirming that the car will be a five-door hatchback, a body style that was available for the first generation of Integra, in 1987.

This new picture also shows the rear lights which adopt a similar shape to those seen on other Acura models, as well as the rear bumper that also features the Integra name embossed into the surface, just like the front one.

Acura’s Canadian website describes the new Integra as a “premium sport compact” which gives hope for a performance variant in the Future, perhaps called Type R.

Two weeks ago, some leaked images from China disappointed many fans of the Integra since the car shown was little more than a rebadged Honda Civic. The new image from Acura confirms that the North American model will be different and a lot more unique than the Integra sold in China.
