Here are the noteworthy updates and modifications that will define the 2024 Acura Integra. Buckle your seatbelt, and let's get into it.
The Integra Type S is the answer to the question: "How can I buy a Honda Civic Type R without looking like a 19-year-old with daddy's credit card?"
No huge wing, no large red "H" badge, but the trio of obnoxiously large chrome exhaust tips is still there. (Perhaps we can get them painted black so they'll blend in better with the rear diffuser.) But if you want to stay low-key, you'll want to avoid the Acura-exclusive "Tiger Eye Pearl" gold paint. Silver, gray, or white might be the best shades to keep under the radar, though Apex Blue Pearl is gorgeous. The Tiger Eye Pearl is a new color, exclusive to the Type S.
Other than that, the Type S borrows the Civic Type R's engine, transmission, locking differential, Brembo brakes, and electronically adjustable performance suspension. In the Type S, the 2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder makes 5 more horsepower, but on recommended 93-octane fuel. The 320 horsepower still goes through a 6-speed manual to the front wheels, with an extremely competent limited-slip differential to help put the power down.
One would expect for an Acura to have oodles of luxury compared to its Honda counterpart, but you would be wrong. The Integra Type S does have rain-sensitive wipers, and the Civic Type R doesn't. The Integra Type S also features a heads-up display that can project the speed, speed limited, and driver assistance infographics onto the windshield in front of the driver.
The Integra shares all of its safety equipment with the Civic Type R, except the Integra Type S has front and rear parking sensors.
