2023 Acura Integra’s Interior Has Been Leaked, And You’ll Probably Be Disappointed
Because it looks too similar to a popular Honda sedanby Isaac Atienza, on LISTEN 02:14
When the 2023 Acura Integra was unveiled last November, a lot of car enthusiasts were disappointed with how it looked. The fastback styling and four-door configuration did not resonate well with fans, since most of them tend to remember the two-door coupe version. Yet since then, we still haven’t been able to see what the interior looks like, until now.
While the Acura Integra was always meant to be a slightly more premium version of the Civic, we clearly did not expect the Acura Integra’s interior to be that similar.
These photos come from Instagram user derphound01, who gave the photos to a user of IntegraForums and then provided a full set to Carscoops afterward.
While it’s not an exact carbon copy of the Civic by any means, it’s like Acura merely added a canopy that separates the front passenger from the driver, and then called it a day. Acura also made no pretense in redesigning the vents too. The long honeycomb pattern from the Civic is gone, but the actual aircon vents still carry the same honeycomb design from its Honda sibling.
Even the door handles, steering, climate controls, and the set of buttons for the electronic parking brake, engine start/stop, and the drive modes are left unchanged. While it’s not exactly a bad thing since these buttons felt nice on the Civic, this isn’t the level of similarity that we were expecting Acura would do to the Integra.
On the upside, this photo definitely confirms that the Acura Integra Prototype is fitted with a six-speed manual transmission, most likely from the Civic Si. After all, it’s been rumored to share its same 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder that produces 200 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque.
Other information is still unknown at this point since Acura still hasn’t announced the exact date that the production Integra will be launched. This also raises the possibility that the interior might still see significant changes by then. Fingers crossed that Acura revamps the Integra’s interior even more than what we’re seeing right now.
