As predicted, it will be priced in the mid-$30,000 in Canada.
The standard powertrain combination will be a turbocharged 1.5-litre engine mated to a CVT.
It will be offered in three trims.
Acura’s hotly debated reintroduction of the Integra name will have upset some purists. Even so, Acura is confident that the new Integra will deliver plenty of driving excitement along with class-leading technologies and features.
“The all-new Integra is an engaging vehicle that comes with advanced technology, engineering, and driving dynamics,” said James Marchand, Assistant Vice President, Acura Canada. “The original Integra captivated an entire generation of driving enthusiasts through the excitement it brought them behind the wheel. This new iteration of our iconic nameplate will do the same, welcoming a new generation of Acura driving enthusiasts for years to come.”
As standard, the Integra will be powered by a 200-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine. The latter will be mated to a CVT automatic transmission that has been purposefully tuned for the application. As promised, a 6-speed manual transmission complete with a helical limited-slip differential (LSD). In order to have access to the 6M, the A-Spec package must be specified.
The base Integra will feature a 10.2-inch digital gauge display, a 7-inch touchscreen display with smartphone integration, a heated steering wheel, an 8-speaker premium audio system, and Acura’s 3-mode Integrated Dynamic System (IDS). Numerous active safety systems will also be included as will synthetic leather seats.
Pricing for the 5-door liftback Integra base trim will hover in the mid-$30,000 range. The A-Spec Package will include a Sport Appearance package, fog lights, 18-inch wheels (up from 17 inches), and more. We suspect this trim will add a further $3,000 or so to the base price. The manual gearbox will be an option as well. We predict a roughly $1,000 premium for an extra pedal.
Finally, the Elite A-Spec Package, which we presume will retail for roughly $42,000, will include a head-up display (HUD), wireless smartphone charging, a 9-inch touchscreen, and a 16-speaker ELS STUDIO 3D audio system. Most importantly, it will also carry Acura’s Adaptive Damper System (ADS). The 6M will once more be optional.
The new 2023 Acura Integra will soon be assembled in Marysville, Ohio, on the same production line as the Acura TLX.
