Acura Integra Type S Coming Next Month With 320 Horsepower

Acura has revealed more details on the upcoming Integra Type S performance hatchback, ahead of its full unveiling next month. The automaker announced that the Type S will produce 320 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, with power coming from a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine and sent to the wheels through a six-speed manual. Hopefully you know how to row your own gears, because an automatic transmission will not be an option.

The aforementioned 2.0 liter engine is likely to be the same unit found in the Civic Type R, which makes 310 horsepower from its 2.0 liter four-cylinder. This means that the Integra Type S will be slightly more powerful than its Honda counterpart. The Acura expected to share a number of components with the potent Civic, though judging from several teasers, the Integra Type S will take a more mature approach in terms of styling.

Compared to the standard, non-Type S Integra, this version appears to have bulkier wheel arches and a black rear lip spoiler, as well as a reworked lower front fascia. Inside, we're expecting sportier materials paired with Type S badging.

The wraps will officially come off the Integra Type S next month, ahead of the 48th annual Acura Grand Prix in Long Beach, California. Expected to start around the mid-$40,000 mark, it will join the TLX and MDX in the brand's performance-oriented Type S lineup this summer.
