2023 Acura Integra debuts with 200hp engine: Check features
Honda-owned Acura has launched its 2023 Integra model in the US market and it is expected to reach dealerships by June. The car was unveiled in March this year with a coupe-like silhouette and a 1.5-liter turbocharged, four-cylinder petrol engine making 200hp. It shares its underpinnings with the 11th-generation Honda Civic but feels premium with the five-door liftback design and plush leather interiors.
- Acura is the luxury and performance car division of Japanese auto giant Honda. It was created to primarily cater to North America but soon expanded to other international markets.
- The 2023 Integra makes its entry back into the luxury car segment of the automaker after an absence of more than two decades from the market.

It gets sweptback LED taillights, a large diffuser with twin exhausts, and a sloping, liftback tailgate at the rear side.
