320 horsepower, a standard six-speed manual and now coming to an Acura dealership near you this June: The 2024 Acura Integra Type S.


Eager to see it in the flesh? The “most powerful and engaging Integra ever,” will make its public debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach this weekend.

Powered by the 2.0-liter, turbocharged K20 engine also found in the Honda Civic Type R, the Acura is rated at 320 horsepower–5 more than the Type R–and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. Customers can also have any transmission they want, as long as it’s a six-speed manual.

Similar to the Civic, the Integra Type S comes fitted with a limited-slip differential and an adaptive damper system that offers Comfort, Sport and Sport+ driving modes.

19 x 9.5-inch wheels wrapped in 265/30R19 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires can be found at all four corners, with 13.8-inch two-piece brake rotors–fitted with Brembo 4-piston calipers–up front and 12-inch solid discs in the rear.

At the time of writing, Acura has not yet released any information on the pricing of the Type S, though we do know the Integra A-Spec starts at $33,300 and the Civic Type R starts at $43,295 (without dealer markups, of course.)

I'm first on the waiting list for one at a local Acura dealer. I'm just hoping there is a decent color combo available. White interiors are a no-no for me and the baby poop pearl just doesn't do it for me. The current exterior/interior combos on the integra are meh.

Wow!  I'm guessing the price is $48,995.   

I have $25,000 cash + equity in my Chevrolet Silverado.  There are 1-2 new cars out there that would foolishly push me into borrowing $30,000 to pay for it.

Interesting. Base mustang has similar specs, is RWD but 300-400lbs heavier. But also half the price. 

Should we read into the fact that they didn't call this an ITR?

I'm not sure. The only reason I think they haven't at this point is to help separate it from the Civic Type R, and Type S seems to be the top rung on the Acura ladder–at least for now.

(I can't totally explain it, but an MDX Type S sounds more on-brand than an MDX Type R.)

ITRs have (at least in the US) always been limited edition cars, and I don't get the impression that that's the intent with this car.

A little more weight.  A little more power.  A little more fancy.  A little more expensive.  I think I like the Type R better aesthetically but that's arguable.  

If i decide not to do a Caterham 420R (Current first choice for track toy) it's a toss up between the Civic and the Integra, though leaning towards CTR.

In reply to Colin Wood :

I was more curious about whether there's room for an ITR. The type S is basically a CTR in a performance tophat. How much more R can they make an ITR when this is already a little more R than the CTR?

IIRC the Integra Type R left the power alone but deleted some creature comforts in favor of lower weight, moving somewhat into the "race car on the street" territory.  Less insulation, radio delete, AC delete, things like that.  Presumably they could apply the same formula to this one, although I have no idea if anyone would buy it.  It'd probably be $80K MSRP as well.

The original ITR did have significant power train changes over the GSR (only the block and crank were really the same) along with chassis differences, stiffer suspension, larger brakes and hubs, different interior, and yes, less content for lighter weight like no sunroof or rear wiper, less sound deadening.
