Acura has announced they’ll begin accepting reservations for the 2023 Integra on March 10th.
The company didn’t go into many details, but suggested consumers act fast as only a “limited number” of units will be available when the Integra goes on sale this spring.
Additional details will be released soon, but the 2023 Integra is a five-door liftback that is slated to start around $30,000. While Acura hasn’t even shown the production model at this point, the car was previewed by a prototype last November.

The Integra adopts Acura’s latest design language as it features a sporty front fascia with a Diamond Pentagon grille that is flanked by JewelEye LED headlights and Chicane LED daytime running lights. While the model resembles a fancy Honda Civic, there are some classic styling touches including embossed Integra logos under the driver’s side headlight and passenger side taillight.
Interior pictures surfaced earlier this year and the design is pretty underwhelming as it looks like a cheaper take on the Civic. That being said, the prototype features two-tone upholstery, a freestanding infotainment system, and mesh-style air vents similar to the Civic.
Acura has been tight-lipped about performance specifications, but the company has already confirmed the car will feature a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine as well as a six-speed manual and a limited slip differential. That setup is apparently lifted from the Honda Civic Si, where the turbocharged four-cylinder develops 200 hp (149 kW / 203 PS) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque.
The Integra is slated to replace the aging ILX, which went into production nearly a decade ago. The model will be built in Marysville, Ohio and Acura obviously has high hopes for the car.
