After going into hibernation for 21 years, the Acura Integra has reemerged and is all-new for 2023. And It is available solely as a four-door liftback. The all-new Integra is engineered for the next generation of driving enthusiasts with a sleek liftback exterior design, thrilling turbocharged engine, and a sport-focused interior.
Equally aspirational and attainable, the price point of the Integra means that it will now serve as the gateway into the Acura brand…. Starting under 31,000. Not only is the Integra the only 5-door liftback in its class – it’s also the only premium sport compact to offer an available 6-speed manual transmission as featured with my loan this week. Inside its driver-focused cabin, you’ll discover an array of groundbreaking tech features including the stunning 10.2-inch Acura Precision Cockpit™ digital gauge cluster, standard smartphone integration, and available head-up display (HUD).
Setting a new standard for both active and passive safety, the Acura Integra is equipped with the proven Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure and the latest generation of the AcuraWatch™ suite of active safety and driver-assistive technologies.
The 2023 Acura Integra is available in three trim levels: Standard, A-Spec Package, and A-Spec Technology Package. All Integra trims are equipped with a 200-horsepower 1.5-liter turbo engine and front-wheel drive. A six-speed manual transmission is available only on the top trim.
Starting at $31,895 (including the $1,095 destination fee), the entry-level Integra comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), automatic jewel-eye LED headlights, LED running and tail lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, 215/50R17 all-season tires, imitation leather seats, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, keyless access with push-button start, a manual-adjustable tilt-and-telescopic leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 10.2-inch digital driver’s display, heated side mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, interior ambient lighting, a tilt-and-slide moonroof, adaptive cruise control, a 60/40-split folding rear bench seat with fold-down center armrest and cup holders, Acura Watch advanced safety and driver-assist systems, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment display with wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an eight-speaker AM/FM stereo, a front USB-A port, and a 12-volt power point.
