2024 Acura Integra Type S.

Last Updated:

Acura has just confirmed the developpement of a sportier Integra Type S.

The new version will be powered by a 2.0 Liter engine with over 300HP. With a 6-speed manual transmission. That same engine produces 315HP in the Civic Type R. No other news except it will be available in the summer.

”¬†Promising ultimate street performance and driver engagement, the Integra Type S will be powered by a high-revving 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged engine producing over 300 horsepower and paired exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. More details to be shared closer to launch.”

I’m not sure how popular the new Acura Integra is so far, but this Type S version will probably have a very limited appeal. Most auto journalists will test it on a track and praise it (like they did with the Civic Type R) but almost no one will actually buy one. guess this is mostly to solidify Acura’s sporty image… Why not…

  1. I’ve seen a few on the road, rather stick with the Civic as the Intergra fundamentally offers little. Not even AWD.

  2. If you haven’t watched the new CTR drive and comments over at Savagegeese, this is a good time to do so. They talk about a CTR that really became more track focused and may be unliveable for us mere mortals that want a barn burning experience over bad payment on the way to work. Maybe that’s where this TypeS is going to sit – tuning power and road manners more focused on daily drivers than the track ready CTR customer. That’s my guess. It’ll be interesting to see if the CTRs tuning is different in markets outside NA that won’t ever see the Integra.

  3. Agree with the comment above from X. The two cars will almost certainly ride differently; with the Integra being more refined as a daily driver (think smaller TLX type S). I watched the Savagegeese review also, in general the CTR is more track focused or for younger people that can take a beating over rough roads (which where I live are our normal roads).

    I love the exterior styling of the Integra. I think the only short coming is the interior is all most all Civic; they should have at least tried to give it a little Acura DNA. But maybe I’m being too picky.

    “We were given few specifics about the 2024 Acura Integra Type S beyond the fact it exists. Supplied technical details were as follows: 2.0-liter turbocharged VTEC engine, six-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential.

    The brief blurb should sound familiar because it applies equally to the 315-hp Civic Type R. That, and the fact the regular Integra uses the Civic Si’s powertrain, feeds our suspicion that S more or less equals R. And although the Honda/Acura staffers didn’t come right out and say so, they did include the CTR in the conversation, specifically saying the 2024 Acura Integra Type S is meant to offer a more emotional and road-focused driving experience, as opposed to the track-hound Civic.”

    While I personally applaud their offering of a 6MT, I do think the TypeS Integra should have gotten a DCT option. And maybe also add those things left off the Integra to hit the price point: rear wiper, pressure pad hatch release, … (theres lots). Can’t get around that in the accessories list.

  5. It seems like the Integra is selling pretty well. For the month of October, it was Acura’s second best seller at 2,638 units. MDX was first 4,050. TLX only sold 866.
