The 2024 Acura Integra Type S will get 320 horsepower “from a race-proven, high-revving 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged engine,” Acura confirmed today.

cura built the original from 1986 through 2001. It was the company’s first platinum record – a sporty compact luxury car built on the same architecture as the Honda Civic with premium trimmings and added athleticism. It boasted a relatively affordable price for a luxury car, bringing sport sedan performance in reach for millions of buyers.

Acura retired the name in the early 2000s and experimented with several other points of entry to the brand. None ever won the kind of affection legions of fans had given to the Integra.

So, last year, Acura brought it back. The new Integra has the same spirit as the cars you might remember – it’s a sporty 5-door liftback available with a manual transmission that threatens small cars from German luxury automakers but costs less.

The formula still works. It won the 2023 North American Car of the Year award from a jury of car critics happy to see its return.

Now, the company has confirmed the car’s power output. Acura’s press release doesn’t say which engine is under the hood, but we think it’s a retuned version of the turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine found in the Honda Civic Type R.

Acura engineers got five more horsepower out of it. But the Integra’s Civic bones probably mean it’s still using the Civic’s best engine.

The Type S will also come exclusively with “a precise, short-throw 6-speed manual transmission,” Acura says.

Teaser photos in stark red lighting show slightly different bodywork for the high-performance model. Fender flares look larger – probably to accommodate a high-performance set of tires – while the rear features a small spoiler that may be painted glossy black.

We’ll know more when Acura unveils it in full next month. After that, the car is to launch this summer.
