The 2023 Acura Integra Signals Return of Iconic Model and now Being Built for First Time in America.

Associates at the Marysville Auto Plant (MAP) today heralded the return of the iconic Integra to the Acura lineup with the start of mass production of the next-generation 2023 Acura Integra sport compact. Honda has built Acura models in America since 1995, but this is the first time the Integra has been built in the U.S.

With the addition of the Integra, the Acura lineup currently features five distinct models also including the TLX sport sedan, the RDX and MDX sport-utility vehicles, and the electrified NSX Type S, all built in Ohio.

"We are proud the Marysville Auto Plant has been chosen as the exclusive global production home for the 2023 Acura Integra that will play a key role in attracting the next generation of driving enthusiasts to the Acura brand," said Arjun Jayaraman, plant lead at MAP. "The fact that we build all Acura vehicles in Ohio speaks to our experienced workforce and highlights the confidence Honda has 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 this vehicle provides and the end result of our associates' efforts is an incredibly fun-to-drive next generation Acura product."

The 2023 Integra returns one of the brand's most iconic nameplates to the Acura lineup, delivering a premium, exhilarating driving experience and a sleek liftback design to a new generation of enthusiast drivers. A premium sport compact inspired by the fun-to-drive spirit of previous Integras, the 2023 model will arrive at dealers beginning in early June with a starting price of $30,800, to become the new performance gateway of the Acura brand.

As the only five-door liftback in the premium sport compact segment, Integra offers sleek style while benefitting from the extended cargo flexibility enabled by the liftback bodystyle. The new Integra is powered by a high-output, 200 horsepower turbocharged engine, built at the Anna Engine Plant in Ohio, paired with either a segment-exclusive 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Integra's ultra-rigid body structure and sport-tuned chassis are tuned for an exhilarating driving experience.

As with every Acura model, Integra benefits from Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which is designed for improved crash compatibility between vehicles of varying sizes, such as an SUV and a small car, and occupant protection in angled frontal collisions. A new upper A-pillar structure, side frame and lower firewall structure are all engineered to route crash energy around the cabin, rather than through it.
