One of the most exciting names to return to the US market this year is the Integra. Acura’s entry-level model is making a strong comeback this year as the 2023 model year car. But you won’t have to wait until 2023 to buy one. Acura says the Integra will be available for delivery to US customers within days. In June, the vehicle will be available at dealerships across the United States.

Delivery times will not be a problem. The Acura Integra, like almost all Honda and Acura brand vehicles sold in North America, is manufactured in the United States. “We are proud that the Marysville Automotive Plant has been chosen as the exclusive global production site for the 2023 Acura Integra, which will play a key role in attracting the next generation of driving enthusiasts to the Acura brand,” said Arjun. Jayaraman, plant manager at MAP. “The fact that we build all Acura vehicles in Ohio is a testament to the experience of our workforce and underscores the confidence Honda places in our associates to build the quality cars and light trucks our customers love. . And as a former owner of a 1990 Integra, I know the excitement that this vehicle brings, and the end result of our associates’ efforts is an incredibly fun-to-drive next-generation Acura product. »

Before dealer markups, the new 2023 Acura Integra will start at around $32,000. All announced Integra versions will be powered by a high-output 200-horsepower turbocharged engine, built at the Anna Engine Plant in Ohio, mated to a segment-exclusive 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission ( CVT). Acura says the Integra’s ultra-rigid body structure and sport chassis are designed for an exhilarating driving experience. We haven’t tested the new Integra yet, but hope to do so soon.

While sporty and satisfying driving is the hallmark of all Acura cars, safety is also a priority for the company. Acura says the Integra benefits from the company’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, designed for better crash compatibility between vehicles of different sizes, such as an SUV and a small car, and the protection occupants in the event of a frontal collision at an angle. Acura engineered a new upper A-pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure to channel crash energy around the cabin rather than through it.
