When Honda first brought its Acura luxury brand to Canada in the 1980s, the Integra was its entry-level model, a compact front-driver sold in sedan and hatchback forms. The Integra name went away in 2002, when Acura replaced it with the RSX. In today’s Acura lineup, the Integra replaces the ILX sedan.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2023, the Integra is back. It’s based heavily on the Honda Civic Si and is now only offered as a hatchback.
The new Integra comes in base, A-Spec, and Elite A-Spec trims. All are powered by a 1.5L turbo four-cylinder engine, which comes matched with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that’s standard in all configurations. Only Elite A-Spec models offer the option of a six-speed manual transmission.
The base Integra comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, a sunroof, digital gauges, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, an auto-dimming mirror, and dual-zone A/C. It also includes passive keyless entry, an eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, leatherette upholstery, and an eight-speaker stereo.
Also standard is a suite of driver safety assists comprising forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, driver attention monitor, automatic high beams, and traffic jam assist.
A-Spec models gain 18-inch wheels, and auto on/off LED headlights.
Elite A-Spec models get adaptive suspension dampers, rain-sensing wipers, a 9.0-inch touchscreen, front and rear parking sensors, a head-up display, wireless phone charging, a 12-way driver’s seat, a four-way power passenger seat, heated rear seats, Ultrasuede upholstery, and a 16-speaker stereo; Elite A-Spec MT also gets a limited-slip differential.
Acura’s fuel consumption estimates are 7.9/6.3 L/100 km (city/highway) for the base model, and 8.1/6.5 L/100 km for A-Spec and Elite A-Spec models with the CVT; Elite A-Spec’s optional manual gearbox is rated for 8.9/6.5 L/100 km.
