Acura, Honda's luxury division, is reviving the icon that helped make it a household name in the U.S.
Discontinued in 2006, the Acura Integra is poised for a comeback, CNN Business reports. The new Integra will be available only as a four-door hatchback and is expected to sell for about $30,000 when it appears as a 2022 model. Powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, the car will also come with a six-speed manual transmission, a rarity in an era when stick shifts have all but vanished from today's vehicles.
The Integra and the upscale Legend were Acura's first two models when the brand appeared in U.S. showrooms in 1986. The Integra inspired particular devotion thanks to its sporty demeanor and relatively low price, and proved especially popular with younger drivers.
Although Acura has pledged that half of its vehicles will be electric by 2030, the Integra is not expected to be among the plug-ins in its fleet.
