Hot 2024 Acura Integra Type S Coming Next Summer

Acura officially announces the rumoured and expected coming of the Integra Type S


  • It will be the new Honda Civic Type R’s clone.

  • Pricing will once more be a huge topic of discussion.


When Acura publicly stated that the Integra was returning to Acura’s roster, once the aftershocks passed and based on the car’s specifications, all understood that it was a Honda Civic Si clone with one exception. The car community quickly realized that a Civic Type R-based Type S version was a very real possibility.

And now, Acura has officially confirmed that a 2024 Integra Type S will be on its way to us next summer. As such, it will be powered by the Honda Civic Type R’s turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Acura states that it will produce “over 300 horsepower” however chances are that it will develop 315hp like the Type R. And like the Civic, its real output will likely be about 5% greater than indicated.

Also, the new 2024 Acura Integra Type S will be delivered with a 6-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential as standard. The Integra will undoubtedly earn the Integra A-Spec’s interior with a few notable differences such as seats, steering wheel, and shifter.

Two things remain: The first is pricing. In Canada, the new 2023 Civic Type R retails for $50,050. Given the roughly $7,000 price gap between the Civic Si and Elite A-Spec Integra with a manual gearbox, we can safely assume a similar gap between the Type R and Type S.

The second is availability. Rumours persist that fewer than 550 Type Rs will be available for purchase in Canada throughout the car’s three intended model years. With the Type S be offered in limited quantities as well? And relatedly, as there are so few Type Rs coming to Canada because build allocations were reserved for the Type S over the Type R?

We’ll find out more about the new 2024 Acura Type S closer to launch time next summer.
