Five horsepower more, to be exact.

Love it or hate it, (and we tend to love it), the Acura Integra is back. Civic-based, hatchback, and with an available manual transmission, it was only a matter of time until parent company Honda threw all of its technological might behind the Integra to the greatest Integra of all time – the Integra Type S. Now, we’ve got a few more details, the Integra Type S will have 320 horsepower, and 310 ft-lbs of torque. That’s five more horsepower than the 315 horsepower in the Civic Type R.

We don’t know exactly what changes Acura has in store for the Type S, at least, not how exactly the brand plans on distancing the Integra Type S from the Civic Type R. Both will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, mated exclusively to a six-speed manual. Otherwise, we don’t know much else about the car. Acura promises that it will have a “class-leading power-to-weight ratio,” and a premium cabin.

At its core, the non-sports-oriented Integra does have a nicer cabin than the Civic, including niceties like adjustable dampers, a head-up display, and a premium sound system that you can’t get on the Civic. Likely, many of those things will be carried over to the Type S. Other outlets have driven prototype Integra Type S examples, claiming there are differences between it and the Civic Type R.

Whatever the case, the 2024 Acura Integra Type S will be unveiled next month at the 8th annual Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.
