Manual transmission of the new Acura Integra has been recently shown in the brand’s new teaser. The return of the model in a fully new guise should happen next spring.
Honda’s luxury brand continues teasing the next-generation Acura Integra. This time, Acura has released a short teaser video of the car’s six-speed manual transmission. The center console in the video resembles that of Honda, and a gear shifter is a nod to Integra’s previous generations.
The manufacturer produced the Honda Integra compact model (known under the Acura brand in the USA) from 1985 to 2006. The car had four generations, three body styles –3-door hatchback (2 doors and a tailgate), 4-door sedan, 2-door coupe.
Now it returns to the market as a 2023 model and a 5-door liftback (some sources call the vehicle a 4-door sporty hatchback).
Expect the official debut of the 2023 Acura Integra to take place in North America in the spring of 2022. By the way, the model under the Honda Integra name has already landed in China, and it resembles the Honda Civic but with different bumpers and lights.
It is clear the next Acura Integra will share its underpinnings with the all-new Honda Civic. The hatchback will likely replace the aging Acura ILX sedan in the lineup. A coupe and a hot R Type version could be launched later on, but this is more an expectation than a fact.
The Interga will cost around $35,000 according to our estimates. If they solve to introduce the high-performance variant, the Acura Integra Type S will be significantly more expensive – about $9-10K more.
