All these cars resurgence is because of impending petrol car ban. Good luck to Honda though
I'd love to see this happen. Hopefully Honda can get it right.
Apparently Acura has been working on the Integra for the past 6 years. With that much time I hope they got it right.


MotorTrend tried to get more information from Acura brand officer Jon Ikeda, who was the one who confirmed that the automaker is tired of people asking for the Integra's return and elaborated on how it decided to make the new Integra happen.

The Acura Integra's Return Has Been In Works For Six Years
Actually, the decision to bring the Integra was made about six years ago, Ikeda confesses. He would not say what platform it uses, where it will be built, or much other detail.

Looks like there's going to be an Integra Type S! Acura has filed a trademark for the name!

So the Integra will be a 5-door car after all. Acura just sent out a new press release with this teaser photo.

Just like the original Integra, which helped launch the Acura brand in 1986, the fifth-generation Integra will be a premium sport compact with striking five-door design.

More details about the all-new Acura Integra will be available closer to its 2022 introduction.

I suppose it will be built out of the new Civic platform, which weighs at least 2877 pounds.

Big question, will it come back as a 2 door liftback?
Nope 4 door according to leaked images from China

There is a coupe being tested in US by Acura. Honda may be trolling. That 4 door sedan could be the sedan version. It may also come to USA.

That’s just the Chinese version of the Civic. Has nothing to do with the Integra we’ll be getting.
Thank god for that. I was reading this article and they're saying this Integra is a way for Honda to sell more cars in China.


Think of this new Integra, which shares most of its body panels with the Civic, as a volume-enhancing marketing tool. Honda believes it can sell more Civics in China, but it wants to reach more young people. It thinks changing up the fascias and adding a new badge will help with that, so it's building this new car in a separate partnership with Guangqi-Honda. The existing Civic is built by a separate joint venture, called Dongfeng-Honda.

I won’t be a buyer (a 2024 Nismo Z has my name on it) but am no less a fan of the Integra. I drove one from the 90’s and my good friend’s 87 two-door hatch when we were in college - both had manual transmissions. They’ve always been great cars, so I hope Acura has spent enough on R&D to meet the public’s lofty expectations. The Integra won’t be a lightweight due not to just having four doors, but because of modern safety equipment, more luxury than the Civic (on which it’s likely based) and the heftier high performance equipment needed to make it perform competitively. I’d guess 3300 lbs +/-, 270-280hp base and probably a Type-R with 310-320hp/manual transmission from the CTR. That Honda offered a manual for the 2.0T Accord means developing one for the base Integra wouldn’t cost much as it would just need certification. The same is true for a Type-R. Honda fumbled the ball with that stick Accord. Had they made a true Accord Type-R, they’d have had a hit on their hands and would still be selling all they could make just like the CTR does to this day. The problem was that they took a half measure, softening/detuning everything in that Accord instead of going all the way by including everything that makes the CTR great. Hopefully it’s a lesson learned and will make the Integra that much better by offering a stick-only Type-R and perhaps even offering an optional manual in the base car. The Type-R is a foregone conclusion because it would be asinine for Honda to screw up the Integra and not offer it. That Toyota MASSIVELY screwed up the Supra means it’s not impossible for Acura to do the same with the Integra, though we know for sure it won’t be a BMW ;)…. All that said, it’ll be entertaining to see what happens over the next year or so as the Z becomes available and we learn more of the Integra.
