2023 Acura Integra Review

Engine

The 2023 Integra is built on the same platform as the Civic Si and shares the 1.5-liter turbocharged four with its limited-slip differential. We don’t know the power output, but it should make at least 200 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission is also available, making it the first Acura to offer a stick since 2015. The Civic Type R also has the rev-matching feature. A manual transmission will be available, which further differentiates it from the stick-only Civic Si.

New Design

This four-door hatchback is back, as it was last seen on the first-generation Integra. The roofline glides forward with no trunk and is accentuated at the end by a decklid spoiler. This rear styling is inspired by the second-and three-generation models. It features a large expanse of sheet metal that runs between two swoopy taillights and is punctuated by an Acura logo. There will not be a three-door version, unlike the three previous generations. The overall silhouette is enhanced by the use of Indy Yellow Pearl paint. The production of color-matched tailpipes is unlikely.

Acura could have been as bold with its front end, which includes Acura’s handsome familial grille. The LED lighting at the front and rear adds sparkle and the embossed “INTEGRA” on the bumpers is a nice touch.
