Acura Reveals 2024 Integra Type S Pricing, Confirms Pre-Orders Will Start May 11th

The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is shaping up to be a wild and potent tribute to some of the 1990s nostalgia that the original Integra was known for. With a turbocharged four-cylinder producing over 300-hp and enough style to make your camera lens melt, this breed of Integra certainly has all the right stuff. However, the one item we didn’t know about was pricing, but that’s now changed with the Japanese luxury car maker revealing the final pricing for the spicy compact.


Integra Type S Shoots For Value Dollar, Aims To Make Wallets Sing With Joy

Pricing for the 2024 Acura Integra Type S will begin at $51,995 (which includes the $1,195 destination charge.) This pricing allows the Integra to not only compete with rivals like the Volkswagen Golf R but also retain some of the baked-in value that the standard model has come to be known for. As a bonus, the pricing ladder also allows the Type S to have distance from its Honda-badged cousin, the Civic Type R, which will help Acura and Honda avoid the possibility of cannibalizing sales.

In addition to pricing, Acura revealed other vital details, including fuel economy, with the Type S getting an EPA-rated 21/28/24 mpg in city/freeway/combined driving. That’s pretty close to the Civic, but the Acura loses 1 mpg in the city category though it otherwise mirrors the Honda in the two other mpg categories. Acura even confirmed that reservations for the model would begin on May 11th, but the lone catch is that this first wave of reservations will be limited, with the brand limiting this pool to 200 lucky customers.


Turbocharged 2.0-liter Four-Cylinder Adds Spice

After you sign the dotted line and put your reservation in, what are you ultimately getting for the money? The answer is an unforgettable performance: all Type S models are powered by a 320-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine is also used in the Civic Type R, but the Acura gets slightly more muscle thanks to a reworked exhaust system that improves exhaust gas flow.

A six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive are the lone drive setup available (just like with the Type R), but Acura claims that torque steer has been mitigated thanks to a dual-axis front suspension that also helps improve grip and road holding capability when the spunky Acura is pushed through twisty corners. Last but not least, styling has also been turned up a notch too, with the Type S receiving model-exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels, larger wheel flares, fatter tires, and larger front air intakes. The car’s rear gets a more prominent diffuser and the trademark triple exhaust tips.

The interior has also been lightly reworked, with the front seats replaced with Ultrasuede-covered sport seats and Acura’s 10.2-inch Digital Cockpit system. A 9.0-inch infotainment screen is standard and comes bundled with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety is also at the forefront, with the Type S featuring the AcuraWatch safety suite as standard equipment.

We look forward to featuring the 2024 Acura Integra Type S in a future review to see if it can genuinely time-warp us back to the 1990s with its performance swagger and elegant interior.
