2023 Acura Integra

June Spotlight: 2023 Acura Integra

After a 20 year hiatus, there is an exciting return making its way back to the Acura lineup. You could say, it’s like welcoming back an old friend. But in this case, it’s even better. Car shoppers get ready to take a test drive in the all-new (and improved) Acura Integra. Set to hit dealerships this month, the 2023 Acura Integra might just be your next car purchase. In fact, it may sway your opinion on sedan vs. SUV once and for all.

What to know about the 2023 Acura Integra

So far the rebirth of this model has gained a lot of attention around the automotive community. But to really understand why its return is significant, here’s a quick rundown of the Integra’s legacy:


As a product of the ’80s, the first generation Acura Integra carried the same low profile design of similar sedans of its time, 4-cylinder engine, and even pop-up headlights. Remember those? But perhaps its most notable feature was the three-door liftback. Essentially, a car with a slopping rear end with a single door that must be lifted to open. The Integra was also most notable for being one of the very first launch models for the Acura namesake in the United States.

The second generation lead to expanded trim options, including the RS, LS, GS, and GS-R (with only manual transmission). By 1992, the Integra offered available 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic in all mentioned models and sold as either the traditional three-door liftback or 4-door sedan. As headlight enthusiasts, we fondly remember the “spider eyes” headlights that defined the third generation model. As well as the iconic spoiler that gave it a sportier look.

Due to shrinkage in the coupe market, Honda made the decision to cease production of this model and shift focus to other luxury models like the TL and MDX after several decades. Today, those who remember the Integra for its handling and performance, can get a taste of a more advanced, premium sport compact. Mixing some of the old, with a lot of new.

How much will the 2023 Integra cost?

The 2023 Acura Integra comes available in four trim options at varying price points. According to Acura’s website, here is the price breakdown and brief description of each trim option. (Keep in mind: these amounts do not take into account taxes, licensing costs, or destination and handling fees)

Integra: $30,800 (Includes In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine with Turbocharger, front wheel drive, Jewel Eye LED headlights)

A-Spec: $32,800 (Includes In-Line 4 Cylinder Engine with Turbocharger, LED fog lights, and A-Spec Exterior Sport Appearance Package)

A-Spec w/ Technology CVT: $35,800 (Includes Continuously Variable Transmission with Paddle Shifters, 4 mode integrated dynamic system, welcome lights, keyless access, 3D premium audio system)

The A-Spec w/Technology 6MT: $35,800 (Includes 6 Speed Manual Transmission with Rev-Match Control, Alexa Built-in, LED side mirror-integrated directional signs, and Active Sound Control (ASC))

And for safety…

To highlight a vehicle today, it must hit all the marks. In particular, it’s got to have superior safety. What we love about the 2023 Acura Integra is that all trim levels come equipped with AcuraWatch Advanced Safety & Driver Assist. Here are the main safety features to expect:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Traffic Sign Recognition

Additional safety and security features in the modern Acura Integra include:

  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Multi-View Rear Camera
  • Anti-Lock braking system
  • Vehicle stability assist (VSA)
  • Side Curtain Airbags
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Auto On/Off headlight operation with windshield wiper integration

As can be seen, this notorious sport model is packed with all the goods. In other words, you won’t have to jeopardize safety to enjoy this ride.

Arrival date: June 2022

The new and improved Integra is sure to win over the hearts of enthusiasts across the nation. Pairing the old school handling and performance of this sport compact with the advanced safety tech of today will make for the ideal cruiser. Another key point to note, the pricing of this entry level luxury model will not break the bank. Falling just under the national average, buyers can expect a good deal for the money. All things considered, we can’t wait to see this upgraded model in person.
