2023 Acura Integra manufacturing specs and photographs revealed

We have now waited 5 months because the Integra Prototype was revealed, and now what we’ve been lengthy awaiting is lastly right here. That is the 2023 Acura Integra in closing manufacturing kind. Immediately not solely provides us photographs of the Integra in its closing guise, however Acura additionally dropped all the knowledge and particulars we’ve been anticipating. Let’s dig in.

Per normal with Acura Prototype fashions, the manufacturing model mirrors the prototype intently. The apparent prototype parts are gone, like the massive “Integra” facet graphic and shade exhaust inserts, however most of what we noticed final yr stays on this hatchback. One notable omission is the dearth of photographs with the yellow exterior paint Acura launched the Prototype in. A leak of the accessible paint colours urged that yellow wasn’t on the desk for preliminary launch, however that doesn’t imply Acura gained’t introduce it as an possibility down the street.

Simply as was teased within the Proto, the one accessible engine shall be a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, and it’ll be formally rated at 200 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque (similar output as the brand new Civic Si). A six-speed handbook transmission with auto rev-matching shall be accessible on the A-Spec mannequin, however a repeatedly variable transmission (CVT) shall be normal throughout the road. The CVT options “Step Shift” programming to simulate shifts, and likewise permits you to transfer the engine velocity round with paddle shifters. We might’ve liked to see Acura determine a means to make use of its 10-speed automated within the Civic platform, however alas, the Civic’s CVT would be the solely automated possibility right here. In the event you select the six-speed handbook — which we strongly recommend you do — the Integra features a helical limited-slip differential that isn’t geared up to automated automobiles.

Delving additional into the efficiency realm, the Integra will get an non-obligatory adaptive damper system. In the event you recall, Honda dropped the adaptive dampers from this technology of Civic Si, making it a motive to improve to an Integra. The adaptive dampers have three settings: Consolation, Regular and Sport. Just like different Acura fashions, the Integra options numerous drive modes to regulate throttle response, automated transmission mapping, steering really feel and gauge coloration. In the event you get the “A-Spec with Know-how Bundle” mannequin, an Particular person mode is added that permits you to independently change all of the modes separate from each other. It additionally provides an possibility to vary the in-cabin sound. Acura says it’s fitted a “new coil sort exhaust system” in an effort to reinforce the sound, however the mode switching within the cabin shall be for sound piped in over the audio system.

Transferring to the inside, it’s clear that we’re taking a look at a Civic’s inside that’s been modified and tweaked to be used in an Acura. Many exhausting factors just like the screens, local weather controls and steering wheel seem the identical because the Honda, however the sprint design is new. Plus, we get a brand new vent design (not stretches all the best way throughout the sprint), new trims, totally different seats and sure a complete lot extra that shall be apparent after we lastly get to sit down within the Integra.

The tech itself seems to be pulled immediately from the Civic. A 7-inch infotainment touchscreen show is normal, whereas a 9-inch-display is non-obligatory. Each are operating what seems to be like Honda’s software program and don’t function Acura’s fancy True Touchpad know-how. The usual infotainment has wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, however the 9-inch display upgrades you to wi-fi variations of each. The usual instrument cluster is a ten.2-inch totally digital cluster, and you may increase this with an non-obligatory 5.3-inch head-up show. The HUD is a part of the Know-how Bundle that additionally features a wi-fi cellphone charger, 16-speaker ELS audio system, rear USB Sort C ports, 12-way energy driver’s seat, 4-way energy passenger seat, inside ambient lighting and extra.

In the event you particularly go for the A-Spec with out the Know-how Bundle, you improve to grey 18-inch wheels with wider (235-section-width) efficiency all-season tires, gloss black window surrounds, gloss black entrance and rear trim, a lip spoiler and A-Spec badging. In the event you have been curious, 17-inch wheels are normal, and 19-inch wheels can be found as an possibility.

As for security options, Acura consists of its normal suite of driver help techniques as normal, together with automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise management, lane-keeping help, site visitors signal recognition, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic monitoring. Improve to the Know-how Bundle, and also you get entrance and rear parking sensors and low-speed braking management to cease low-speed accidents.

Full pricing particulars are nonetheless not accessible, however Acura says the Integra will begin round $30,000 with deliveries starting this spring. For these into NFTs, Acura says the primary 500 reservations with a deposit positioned will obtain an Integra NFT. After all, if that’s not one thing you’re into, you’ll be able to merely not declare mentioned NFT and go drive your actual automotive as a substitute.
