It’s Official: Acura Is Bringing Back The Integra In 2022

The new Acura Integra arrives next year and a Type-R model is sure to follow

If you are among the people who were hoping for a new Acura Integra Type-R, today is your lucky day. Acura just announced the revival of one of their most iconic names – the Integra. They did so in a press release, on August 13th, and there’s even a teaser on Acura’s Instagram page, giving us a glimpse of the sports car.

This is indeed great news, as the Acura name dates back to Acura’s debut, in 1986. We recently gave you an independent designer’s vision of what a new Integra Type-R should look like. While that one was more of an homage to the DC2 and DC5 models, what we see from the teaser looks to be more in tune with the brand’s current design language.

This, however, does not seem to be the case, as Acura is going for a more modern design.

The Acura Integra will return as a compact premium model as soon as next year. Acura was present at the annual Monterey Car Week, in California where Acura’s Vice President Jon Ikeda made a statement.

“I’m thrilled to say Integra is returning to the Acura lineup with the same fun-to-drive spirit and DNA of the original, fulfilling our commitment to Precision Crafted Performance in every way – design, performance, and the overall driving experience”,

Ikeda said. “The Integra is back”.

We don’t know much for now, but we expect more details in the near future. The question everyone is asking is, what engines will be available? The Integra wouldn’t have a proper return, without a Type-R variant. It could share an engine with the Civic Type-R, or it could not. We’ll have to wait until next year to find out.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
