The Acura Integra is a enjoyable little hatchback that shares a powertrain with the Honda Civic Si. Since the Si has an even bigger brother within the 300-plus-horsepower Type R, it was assumed that Acura would finally create a sister mannequin to that one, as effectively. Now it has been confirmed.
Acura on Monday revealed the primary teasers for the upcoming 2024 Integra Type S. The automaker did not reveal too many particulars, saying solely that its 2.0-liter, turbocharged I4 makes greater than 300 horsepower and that it the engine mates solely to a six-speed handbook transmission and a limited-slip differential.
The teaser photos Acura revealed exhibit a camouflaged Type S. While a lot of its particulars stay obscured, it is simple to select the aggressive bodywork hiding beneath that vinyl wrap. The entrance bumper seems far angrier, as does the rear bumper, which homes a tri-tip exhaust smack dab within the center, similar to the Type R.
It’s most likely truthful to imagine that the Integra Type S will carry the Type R’s powertrain with only a few modifications, if any. In the Type R, that 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 produces 315 hp and 310 pound-feet of torque, which was barely improved over the earlier era. After a while with the Type R each on the road and the monitor, I can affirm that it is one significantly rowdy sizzling hatch. The Acura ought to be a reasonably good time, as effectively.
We’ll be taught extra in regards to the Integra Type S as we draw nearer to the automobile’s launch, which ought to occur in some unspecified time in the future in 2023.
