Default Acura Integra Type S

Quote:
Acura Integra Type S Is Coming

And we have proof.
Last year, we were told that if the Integra name ever returns to the Acura lineup, it would have to be worthy of its iconic forebear. Acura obviously believes that it can do the name justice, officially announcing this month that the Integra will return next year. We're happy that the Integra will not be a crossover or SUV, and we're hopeful that it will be a true enthusiasts' car, but Acura hasn't told us very much about what we can expect.

Thanks to some sleuthing skills, we can exclusively confirm that the Integra will certainly be fun to drive. How do we know? Well, we've uncovered a trademark application for the "Integra Type S" name.

The trademark was filed for apparel, including headwear and footgear, but Acura would not be creating merchandise for a car it won't be making. Like the Type S versions of the MDX and TLX, the Integra Type S will launch under the slogan "Less Talk. More Drive". With Acura not ruling out multiple body styles, it's quite possible that only the sportiest-looking version will get the Type S treatment, but that's no bad thing. And if you're wondering why there's no talk of a Type R like the original, that's because that "brand" is now exclusive to Honda, making Acura's highest rung of performance the Type S line.


That's no bad thing either, as the recently revealed Acura NSX Type S proves. The regular NSX produces 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque, while the uprated model offers a total of 600 hp and 492 lb-ft. Thus, when we do eventually see the Type S, we expect it to have unique front and rear fascias, possibly some enhanced aero appendages, and of course, more power with better handling. Sadly, we'll have to wait a while, as the new Integra will only be unveiled next year, likely to arrive as a 2023 model. Unless the Type S launches at the same time, we expect to see the upgraded model a few months on from the initial release.

RutRoh, looks like another disappointment by Acura/Honda.

That’s a China domestic car that shares the name, that’s all.

Sweatshirts, polos, hats, jackets, well that left off underwear. You can tell where this "new car" is going. Hype, marketing, and bs. FWD. Newsflash Honda: high revving inline 4's with VTEC, yo, where neat 20 years ago. It's twenty years later, wake the f up. Throw a turbo 4 in it, with SH-AWD, and one of your solid S2000 like 6MT's. Until then it's another hype machine and you haven't made d worth anything since the RSX Type S.

The Chinese market Acura does not have a sedan in their lineup so this could be a China specific model. China often gets completely unique vehicles and names only available in China.

But this could actually be a pure Honda product (see badges) too but they do sell the Civic and Accord in China, so who knows.

Recent Integra mule appeared to be a 5 door hatch or a coupe. I think it’s possible we’ll get two variants.

Not interested unless there’s a manual. I think base 1.5T and 2.0T Type S is what to expect. AWD would make sense but this is Acura we’re taking about, they’ll **** it up.

You got links?

If it's a 5 door variant, I am interested. However if it is based on that ugly arse POS Honda CIVIC liftback then I am out.

Gosh this side shot is so ugly



And you can count on Acura/Honda f****n it up, they have a reputation to maintain. Just look how stellar the TL Type S has turned out after all the hype. Rollin' my eyes!

A hatchback coupe? Or a hatchback "coupe"? I can't imagine they will ever allow a real couple to sell in the US (I'd love it if they did).

Civic hatch looks nothing like the M Coupe. I got a ride in one of those at NH Speedway, pretty awesome car.

It's just going to be a Civic dudes. A fancy Civic.

The only hope is they throw SH-AWD in it and offer it in a manual transmission. Then charge a premium over the Hype R. Unless that is the specific recipe I see no point.

I don't see SH-AWD as it would push the price into a territory where the Civic origins can't compete. Given how they messed up the TSX Type S it's probably best they keep it FWD so at least as nimble as a Civic Si or Type R.
