Acura Integra Arrives in Canada from $34,350

2023 Acura Integra gets a stick, but it'll cost you

  • Six-speed offered only on top trim cars

  • Sport compact legend returns

Acura has just priced the next-generation all-new Integra sport compact hatch. It’ll start in the mid $30s like Acura said, but if you want to buy a stick, don’t expect to get any change from $45,000.

Like a fancy Civic Si hatchback – a configuration Honda doesn’t offer – the 2023 Acura Integra comes with a 200 hp 1.5L turbo-four. And in standard Integra spec, a CVT automatic. That one starts for $34,350, right around where we had anticipated.

Acura claims class-leading rear legroom and cargo space, but the sport compact segment is hot right now and the car will need more than just a large cabin to find success.

The 2023 Integra will offer an adaptive damper system as well as an integrated dynamics system with Sport, Comfort, Normal, and custom modes. It will also offer what Acura calls the segment’s only six-speed manual transmission, but to get all of those features you’ll need the top-level trim.

That model, Integra Elite A-Spec Package runs $42,550 plus freight and PDI, for a total of $44,925 before taxes and dealer fees. It has the same price for both the CVT and MT versions of that trim level. A middle-ground A-Spec CVT costs $37,050.

We mention Acura calls it the only six-speed in the segment, but we’re not sure how they define that segment. The 275 hp Hyundai Elantra N offers one and costs $39,054. If that doesn’t count because it is a sedan, Volkswagen has the 241 hp GTI hatch with a stick for $31,495 ($38,995 if you want adaptive shocks) and the Golf R for $45,995 with 315 hp and all-wheel drive.

Still, we’re excited for the return of the Integra. If you are too, it’s expected to start arriving at dealers in June.
