Having made its public debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, the 2024 Acura Integra Type S delivers a new interpretation of ultimate performance for a new generation of driving enthusiasts.
Featuring a high-revving four-cylinder engine producing a class-leading 3201 horsepower, the new turbocharged Integra Type S is true to Acura’s legacy of high-performance Integras and rich history of Type S performance variants.
Standard hardware includes a turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC engine, class-exclusive 6-speed manual transmission, limited slip differential and performance-tuned Adaptive Damper System. Powerful Brembo front brakes and lightweight 19-inch wheels wrapped in high-performance summer tires complete the dynamic package.
The fourth Acura Type S performance variant to launch in the last 24 months, the Integra Type S takes Integra’s styling to the next level with a bold and aggressive wide body design, dynamic center-mounted triple exhaust outlets, large front air intakes, hood vent and a rear diffuser that immediately communicate its high-performance capabilities.
“The Acura Integra is an iconic automotive nameplate that comes with a history of performance and passion, the new Integra Type S takes this legacy to new heights,” says James Marchand, Assistant Vice President Acura Canada. “The all-new 2023 Integra is the North American Car of the Year; the new 2024 turbocharged, Type S comes with even greater enhancements making the driving experience more exhilarating without compromising comfort and refinement.”
Most Powerful and Engaging Integra Ever
At the heart of the Integra Type S is a high-revving DOHC turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC® engine with direct injection, unique throttle tuning for quick throttle response and 33% greater displacement than the Integra’s standard 1.5-litre engine. With 320 horsepower (SAE net @ 6,500 rpm) and 310 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net @ 2,600 to 4,000 rpm) – an increase of 120 hp and 118 lb.-ft. over the standard Integra – the Type S model has both class-leading power and a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of just 10.06 pounds per horsepower.
A new high-flow exhaust system, exclusive to the Integra Type S, unleashes the full potential of the award-winning 2.0-litre turbocharged (K20C) engine. In combination with software tuning, it gives the 4-cylinder engine its highest-ever horsepower rating in North America, and a class-leading specific output of 160 hp/litre.
For those looking to take the Integra Type S even further, the high-performance sedan is available with an extensive list of Genuine Acura Accessories, including a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber mirror caps, black illuminated front Acura badge, copper metallic finished 19-inch wheels and an Integra Type R-inspired titanium shift knob.
The highly anticipated 2024 Acura Integra Type S is scheduled to arrive in Canadian showrooms this June with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $55,600.
