The 2024 Type S gets a 2.0L four and 320 hp
Acura will sell the Integra Type S only with a six-speed stick
Acura has just confirmed that the Integra Type S will arrive this summer with 320 hp from its 2.0L turbo-four. Even better, the Type S will be offered only with a six-speed manual transmission.
Yes, that gives the top-dog Integra just a hair more power than its Honda sibling. The Civic Type R makes just 315 hp from its version of the same 2.0L turbo-four. Both get the same torque figure, 310 lb-ft.
Acura says that the 2024 Integra Type S will have the best power-to-weight ratio in its class. We’re not sure exactly what the class is, but it most likely excludes the more stripped-down Civic.
If Acura had gone with some sort of automatic transmission in the Type S, we wouldn’t have been surprised. The mission of the Integra is, after all, one of some luxury over just raw performance. However, the Acura Integra Type S shirked that all-too-common decision and will have a short-throw six-speed stick. If it’s anything like the gearbox in the A-Spec Integra (and it likely is), then this will be a seriously sweet powertrain combination.
That’s all the information we’re getting for now. At least apart from the 10-second clip of engine noise Acura dropped with the announcement.
The 2024 Acura Integra Type S will be fully revealed next month as part of the 48th annual Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
