Acura took the covers off their 2023 Integra prototype earlier this week and it’s shaping to be exactly what they promised! The prototype model was finished in Indy Yellow Pearl, a colour borrowed from the NSX. Early indications say the car is set to be priced around USD $30,000.
The 2023 model takes inspiration from the original 5-door Integra of 1986 and will also come with a manual transmission. Power comes courtesy of a 1.5 litre turbo VTEC unit and will go to the wheels through an intelligent limited slip differential.
The executives at Acura say the new model aims to stick to the same ‘aspirational yet attainable’ philosophy that has made this nameplate famous across the world.
Styled in Japan, the sleek lines give the car a coupe like look while incorporating the practicality of a 5-door. The fifth generation model pays homage to previous generations by keeping the embossed ‘Integra’ logo on the bumpers. However, it’s very much a modern car otherwise with the lights featuring a unique LED design called ‘Chicane’!
19-inch wheels, colour matched Brembo brakes, high-gloss Berlina Black accents and Integra graphics further complete the sporty look of this car. The new car will also be the first Integra to be built at Acura’s Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio.
