  • Class-leading technology includes standard 10.2-inch Acura Precision Cockpit™ digital gauge cluster and available 16-speaker ELS STUDIO 3D® premium audio system
  • The uniquely aspirational yet attainable 2023 Integra will start in the mid $30,000’s

The 2023 Integra returns one of the brand’s most iconic nameplates to the Acura lineup, delivering a premium, exhilarating driving experience and a sleek liftback design to a new generation of enthusiast drivers.

A premium sport compact inspired by the fun-to-drive spirit of previous Integras, the all-new model will arrive at dealers this Spring with a starting price in the mid- $30,000’s, to become the new performance gateway of the Acura brand.

“The all-new Integra is an engaging vehicle that comes with advanced technology, engineering and driving dynamics,” said James Marchand, Assistant Vice President, Acura Canada. “The original Integra captivated an entire generation of driving enthusiasts through the excitement it brought them behind the wheel. This new iteration of our iconic nameplate will do the same, welcoming a new generation of Acura driving enthusiasts for years to come.”

Completing Acura’s return to Precision Crafted Performance, the new Integra is powered by a high-output turbocharged engine delivering 200 horsepower and paired with either a segment-exclusive 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

An ultra-rigid body structure and sport tuned chassis are tuned for an exhilarating driving experience. Integra offers sleek style while benefitting from the extended cargo flexibility enabled by the liftback bodystyle.  Designed to engage the driver in all aspects, Integra also features generous rear seat legroom that’s rarely encountered in its class.

Sporty and personal, Integra’s distinctive driver-focused interior design creates the perfect environment for spirited driving. A high level of standard features includes a 10.2-inch Acura Precision Cockpit™ digital gauge display, smart phone integration, and 8-speaker premium audio system. High-tech available features include a head-up display (HUD), wireless smart phone charging, Amazon Alexa Built-In and 16-speaker ELS STUDIO 3D® audio system.

The 2023 Integra sets a new benchmark for both active and passive safety technology in the premium compact class with Acura’s rigid Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, cutting-edge airbag designs and an updated AcuraWatch™ suite of active safety and driver-assistive technologies. Groundbreaking new first-in-segment front airbags for the driver and front passenger are designed to reduce the risk of traumatic brain and neck injuries. Rear seat side airbags are standard.

Fun, Engaging Performance
Integra’s class-leading driving dynamics and engaging performance is built upon an exceptionally rigid body and sport-tuned chassis combined with Integra’s fully independent suspension to deliver precise, sporty handling and a comfortable ride. Integra also benefits from powerful brakes and precise variable-ratio steering.

A standard Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) enables the Integra driver to choose between three distinct driving modes (Comfort, Normal and Sport) for the throttle response, automatic transmission mapping, steering feel and gauge coloration. A-Spec with Elite Package adds adjustments for in-cabin sound, plus an “Individual” mode which allows the driver to customize the IDS setting combinations to their liking.

An available Adaptive Damper System (ADS) gives drivers even more precise control of Integra’s ride and handling performance with distinct damping characteristics for Comfort, Normal and Sport driving modes. Drivers also can customize their driving experience with an Individual mode that allows independent selection of steering, engine response, and suspension firmness for a tailored driving experience at the touch of a button.

Under Integra’s aluminum hood is a VTEC®-enhanced DOHC 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine producing 200 horsepower (SAE net @ 6,000 rpm) and 192 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net @ 1,800 - 5,000 rpm). A new coil type exhaust system adds an emotional exhaust sound that further enhances Integra’s engaging driving experience.

Tuned specifically for the high-output turbocharged engine, Integra’s standard CVT automatic transmission responds quickly to throttle inputs and Step Shift programming simulates gear changes when accelerating. For added driver control, steering wheel-mounted shifter paddles are standard.

An available segment-exclusive 6-speed manual transmission dials up the engagement even further. The short-throw, close-ratio 6-speed features automatic rev matching on downshifts for the ultimate in precision driving. To maximize available traction when accelerating out of corners, power is routed through a helical limited-slip differential (LSD) in manual transmission-equipped grades.

Sleek Exterior Design
The 2023 Integra features sporty and compact proportions inspired by previous Integras, specifically the original 5-door model that helped launch the Acura brand in Canada in 1987. The new Integra combines a coupe-like profile with surprising flexibility thanks to its liftback design. Thin a-pillars and a low cowl create an expansive greenhouse for excellent outward visibility which is also beneficial during spirited driving.

Integra continues Acura’s alluring contrast design language, first seen on the 2019 RDX. A sophisticated front fascia features a frameless version of Acura’s Diamond Pentagon grille, framed by four JewelEye® LED headlight elements and “Chicane” LED daytime running lights. LED fog lights integrated into the lower fascia are available.  

An aggressive rear fascia with dual exhaust finishers emphasizes the Integra’s wide track and sporty stance. An upswept decklid and wide, single piece LED taillights harken back to the iconic third-generation Integra, and once again Integra is embossed in the front and rear fascia. Distinctive 17-inch alloy wheels are standard while 18-inch wheels are optional.

An available A-Spec® sport-appearance package pumps up the visual style with a gloss-black window surrounds and front and rear fascia trim. A sporty lip spoiler and A-Spec® badges adorn the front fenders and tailgate. Shark Gray 18-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in larger 235/40R18 all-season performance tires.

Sporty and Personal Interior Experience
Inside, Integra has a sporty and personal cabin featuring high-quality materials and switchgear, with all touch points imparting a premium feel. The climate control vents reflect the diamond mesh pattern of the grille, highlighted by piano-black trim.

Integra’s low cowl, thin pillars and door-mounted exterior mirrors help create exceptional visibility. Rear seat passengers enjoy generous legroom and to support active lifestyles, Integra’s 60/40 split rear seatbacks can be folded flat to flexibly expand the cargo area.

Standard on the 2023 Integra are new body-stabilizing and heated front seats wrapped in synthetic leather, with 8-way power adjustment for the driver. The optional Elite A-SPEC Package adds a 12-way power seat (includes lumbar support) for the driver (4-way for the front passenger) as well as micro suede inserts for the front seats.

When equipped with the A-Spec® sport appearance package, Integra communicates its performance edge with stainless steel pedals, red gauge needles, and contrast stitching on the steering wheel, seats, shifter and shift boot.

Class-Leading Technology
Integra’s segment-leading technology includes a standard 10.2-inch Acura Precision Cockpit™ digital gauge cluster with multiple display modes and a 7-inch digital touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

The available Elite A-SPEC Package increases the touchscreen size to 9-inches and adds wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, Alexa Built-In, Qi-compatible wireless charging and a 5.3-inch Head-Up Display (HUD).

Standard premium audio is provided via 8-speakers while the available 16-speaker ELS STUDIO 3D® premium audio system adds a new dimension with two Highline™ speakers mounted in the headliner, above the front seat passengers.

Cutting-Edge Safety
As with every Acura model, Integra benefits from Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which is designed for improved crash compatibility between vehicles of varying sizes, such as an SUV and a small car, and occupant protection in angled frontal collisions. A new upper A-pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure are all engineered to route crash energy around the cabin, rather than through it.

Integra also features a new generation of driver and passenger front airbags, specifically designed to cradle the head, and further reduce the risk of brain injuries, especially in offset collisions. Integra’s aluminum hood features an embossed inner structure that will distribute the force of an impact with a pedestrian’s head in the event of a collision to reduce the likelihood of injury.

Integra’s standard AcuraWatch™ suite of driver assistive and safety technologies feature an all-new, single-camera system with a wide field of view and long range. Using the new single-camera system, Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) can distinguish between vehicles, pedestrians, and even bicycles. It also includes functionality such as Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) and Traffic Jam Assist (TJA, CVT only), and more natural feeling responses for functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

Also standard on every Integra is a Blind Spot Information system (BSI) with Rear Cross-Traffic Monitoring. Integra A-Spec® with Elite Package includes front and rear parking sensors and Low-Speed Braking Control (LSBC).

Manufactured in North America
Production of the 2023 Integra will mark the first time Integra is built in North America, to begin soon in Marysville, Ohio, on the same production line as the Acura TLX*.  Integra’s engine is made exclusively at the Anna Engine Plant in Ohio, which also produces the Type S Turbo V6 that powers TLX Type S, MDX Type S, and the 600-horsepower twin-turbo V6 of the NSX Type S supercar.
