After years of clamoring and speculation from fans, the Acura Integra is returning, officially unveiled in November 2021 at an event in Los Angeles that was live-streamed on YouTube but didn’t provide much in the way of details. Now, the wait for official vehicle specs is over, as Acura has taken the wraps off most of the top-secret information the enthusiast community has been drooling over for months.
The new Integra shares some of its styling with other Acura models and some dimensions with the Honda Civic. It also carries nostalgic visual elements that tie back to the “original” car. Embossed Integra logos in the bumpers and the rear-end appearance are examples of small design touches meant to evoke memories of previous generations. As it does with other models, Acura will offer an A-Spec package for the Integra, and also, like the others, it’s purely cosmetic and does not enhance performance.
The Integra’s return—and with a manual gearbox, no less—is notable on its own, but Acura’s targeted price tag for the car is worth a headline or two. The car will start at around $30,000 when it goes on sale in spring 2022. The Integra will be built at Honda’s auto manufacturing plant in Marysville, Ohio, making it the first Integra built on U.S. soil.
