The 2023 Acura Integra is an all-new model for Acura. It takes over the entry-level sedan position from the ILX and remains largely based on the Civic but shares no panels, carries a more rigid chassis, and incorporates many unique features.
Choosing Your Acura Integra
The Integra is offered in three trims, Integra, A-Spec, and A-Spec with Technology. Pricing ranges from $31,895 to $36,895.
A turbocharged four-cylinder engine is standard and generates 200 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque from 1,800-5,000 rpm. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission that performs simulated gear changes and features steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Enthusiasts will take note of the segment-unique six-speed manual transmission that features rev-matching and is partnered with a limited-slip differential, although it is only available on the A-Spec with Technology trim. Power is routed to the front wheels only.
The Integra with the CVT earns 30 miles per gallon city, 37 MPG highway, and 33 combined (losing one point across the board with the A-Spec with Technology) while the manual achieves 26, 36, and 30 MPG, respectively. Premium fuel is recommended.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Integra stretches to 186 inches in length, rides on a 107.7-inch wheelbase, and sits 72 inches wide. That is about 10 inches longer than any of the entry-level luxury models from Audi (A3), BMW (2-Series), and Mercedes-Benz (A-Class). That added length contributes to the Acura’s 37.4 inches of legroom which is about 2-3 inches more than those models while its hatchback design affords 24.3 cubic feet which puts it more in line with a compact crossover.
The Integra follows the path of other Acuras with a full suite of active safety technology. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and traffic sign recognition are included. Also included are advanced front airbags whose design reduces the risk of brain injuries in an offset collision and rear passenger side airbags – typically an optional feature on far more luxurious vehicles. The top-tier A-Spec with Technology additionally receives low-speed braking control, parking sensors, and rain-sensing wipers. In a balk against industry, getting the six-speed doesn’t mean foregoing the safety tech and it includes all of the goodies except for traffic jam assist – a practical exclusion.
The Integra has not yet been evaluated by IIHS but the Civic, from which it borrows much of the safety construction design and technology features, earns an IIHS 2022 Top Safety Pick+ award with Superior crash prevention scores.
The base Integra is equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen and features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth while the A-Spec with Technology receives a nine-inch touchscreen with wireless CarPlay and Auto, Alexa Built-In, SiriusXM, HD Radio, a wi-fi hotspot, and remote subscription services. The top-tier trim also gains a 530-watt 16-speaker ELS Studio 3D sound system as well as an additional USB port up front, two ports for the rear passengers, and a wireless charger.
