2024 Acura Integra Type S – The Ultimate Street Performance Car

The 2024 Acura Integra Type S debuts with 320 horsepower and goes on sale in June.

The Acura Integra you’ve been looking forward to has arrived. While the base model did not meet everyone’s expectations for the resurrected nameplate, the new 320-hp 2024 Type S performance model ensures that the integra remains a sport-compact contender.

The Type S, like the standard integra, borrows many components from the Honda Civic. This includes its turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine, which produces 320 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque in the Acura. That’s a 5 horsepower boost over the Civic, which Acura attributes to the Integra’s unique exhaust system. The power differential could also be for bragging rights, but given that the Acura’s claimed curb weight is around 30 pounds higher than the Civic Type R’s, we believe the two cars’ acceleration performance will be comparable. The only transmission option in the Type S is a six-speed manual with rev-matching, and a limited-slip differential is standard.

All of the expected chassis upgrades are also available. The front and rear tracks are wider, and the Integra shares the Civic Type R’s dual-axis front suspension setup, which is designed to reduce torque steer. Adaptive dampers adjust based on the drive mode selected such as Comfort, Sport, and Sport+ in the Type S.

Front and rear brake rotors have been upgraded, and the lightweight 19-inch wheels are wrapped in 265-series Michelin, Pilot Sport 4S summer tires. The Integra will attempt to appeal to a different fanbase than the Civic, with slightly less aggressive styling than the street-racer Type R.

The Type S retains widened fenders and an appropriately aggressive stance. but it lacks the Civic’s massive rear wing and has more subtle air intakes, front splitter, and rear diffuser.

The Integra’s active exhaust, on the other hand, is expected to sound even better than the Civic’s, with plenty of pops and bangs in Sport+ mode. Seven colors will be available, including blue, white, and the eye-catching gold Tiger Eye Pearl shade found on the TLX and MDX Type S models.

The Type S front seats comes with extra bolstering, that are trimmed in a red, black, or white leather, and suede upholstery combination. Some features, such as a head-up display and a 16-speaker E L S audio system, are not available on the Civic Type R.

The front seats are heated, and the driver’s seat is power adjustable and has lumbar support that can be adjusted. The Type S foregoes the center rear seat, making it a four-seater. The 9.0-inch touchscreen display supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Acura hasn’t released pricing information for the Integra Type R, which will be critical for understanding its positioning. We’re hoping for a price under $50,000, which would put it a few thousand dollars above the Civic Type R and in line with German rivals like the Audi S3, and BMW M235i Gran Coupe.
