This is an independent design from Jordan Rubinstein-Towler that is neither endorsed by nor related to Acura or Honda.
We’re only going to know if the new Acura Integra proves to be a success once sales figures start coming in but based solely on the internet’s reaction to the car, opinion seems to be divided. Had the new Integra looked a little like this, however, we think Acura could have been on to a winner.
This particular Integra concept has been brought to life by Jordan Rubinstein-Towler. The designer first came across our radar in August 2021 when he created a modern-day Honda Integra Type R with a design inspired by the DC2-generation car. He has now created a tamed-down version of this car that could be dubbed an Acura and sold in North America.
The front of the concept looks drastically different than the 2023 Integra but it still manages to look like an Acura thanks to the TLX-inspired headlights, complete with sharp LED daytime running lights. Elsewhere, the car sports a striking front grille and a pointed nose that adds to its aggressive looks.
Unlike the new Integra, the car rendered here is a two-door, which is more fitting of the car’s history. We can also see that it sports a set of striking wheels with blue brake calipers.
Spin around to the rear and you will find LED taillights, a classic hatchback design, and a centrally-mounted exhaust. Completing the look are Type S badges.
Acura recently confirmed that the 2023 Acura will start at around $30,000 and is indeed based on the Honda Civic Si, as many had suspected. As such, it features a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder pumping out 200 hp and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque, exactly the same as the Civic Si.
