2023 Acura Integra pricing: official info…
It looks like the base Integra is about $ 3000 more than a similarly equipped (or close) Honda Civic EL-X hatchback. Although the Honda does come with leather.
The base Integra is about $1000 more than the top-of-the-line Touring hatchback. But the Honda does come standard with a great 12 speaker Bose system not available in the Acura.
Acura’s fantastic 16 speakers setup is only available with the Tech Package. At almost $36 000.
The new Integra isn’t cheap. But it’s an Acura, not a Honda. Although a lot of its interior is lifted from the Honda and materials are probably not that much better.
The killer is the CVT. Honda’s great 6-speed manual is only available as a no-cost option on the top-of-the-line model. Which seems too bad, until reality sets in. Which means almost no one will actually order the manual anyway. And it will probably be available only for a couple of years due to poor sales.
This car really needed the 10-speed auto from the Accord. Unless they worked wonders with the CVT, I can’t see this driving much nicer than the Civic Turbo. Where most of the Turbo’s extra power is ruined by the CVT anyway…
