Video The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is Coming and Confuses Us All

Video ✅ Compared to recent car reveals such as the Nissan Z, Toyota GR86, and many more – the Acura Integra’s four door approach didn’t seem to capture the enthusiast community’s heart. Craving a true sequel to the DC2 was a dream that was now 100% fantasy. However the new Acura Integra Type S might show some promise taking lessons from it’s brother the Honda Civic Type R..infact almost everything. So is the Type S what we are all looking for as car enthusiasts? Let’s talk about it. ✅ The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is Coming and Confuses Us All

0:00
it I’m doing it yeah now let’s see how
0:04
it looks so far
0:07
[Music]
0:12
yeah
0:18
[Music]
0:19
I have been extremely mean to the
0:23
accurate Integra I was just hoping for
0:25
enthusiasts to have something a little
0:27
bit more fresh and new because the first
0:29
time I saw the Integra in person and
0:31
kind of in the wild I was in Vancouver
0:33
Canada and I mistaked it for an ILX at
0:36
first and just that design language of
0:39
that front grille I was kind of hoping
0:41
for something different not to mention
0:43
the constant Genesis Coupe jokes of the
0:46
rear end I think a lot of us who are
0:48
hardcore Honda and Acura fans just
0:51
weren’t very pleased with the car it
0:53
just didn’t have the bite I was looking
0:55
for in a grand unveil of a legacy car
0:59
that we all know and love in the
1:01
Enthusiast community
1:05
and so
1:07
yeah it was it’s kind of hard to watch
1:09
and I even made another video talking to
1:11
other Integra enthusiasts talking about
1:13
their opinions of it and it was pretty
1:15
consistent hey Amanda you are a lead
1:18
marketing of the Integra and you have to
1:20
present this new prototype what is your
1:22
angle I quit
1:25
but I’m also a hardcore Enthusiast and
1:27
that doesn’t keep a company alive so
1:30
there’s that argument however if we’re
1:33
gonna be honest today which I am let’s
1:35
get into the brand new Acura Integra
1:38
Type S which we just got spy shots of
1:41
and a Motor Trend just flew all the way
1:43
to Japan and drove it for two laps so
1:47
shout out to you for going all the way
1:49
there for two laps pretty wild first
1:51
things first the main argument of the
1:53
Integra being a four-door and the way it
1:55
looks and how it is in general is that
1:58
coops don’t sell anymore nobody wants
2:03
coops anymore which I think they’re
2:05
basing that argument on the Civic Si’s
2:07
audience but if you think about the
2:10
Civic SI in the past even like the EM1
2:13
and all those cars I never viewed the
2:16
Civic SI customer in the Integra Type R
2:19
customer
2:21
or GSR as the same kind of person I
2:25
always thought the Acura Integra Type R
2:28
was an even more hardcore version of the
2:30
EM1 if that makes sense however
2:34
that’s just not how the cookie crumbles
2:35
nowadays apparently and that’s why they
2:38
just did this so with the brand new type
2:40
S on the horizon let’s break it down go
2:43
over some of the rumors the stats and
2:46
all that good stuff and then give you my
2:48
opinion on it so I just reviewed the
2:50
brand new Civic Type R and this will
2:53
actually be an important factor of what
2:55
we talk about today because they have a
2:57
lot in common the car was great I really
2:59
didn’t have any main complaints it was
3:02
just an improved version of the older
3:04
car but its bigger problem is actually
3:07
the competition that is the main problem
3:10
for the Honda Civic Type R there’s so
3:13
many other Japanese sports car options
3:16
right now that you have to really make a
3:19
statement to take on behemoths like the
3:22
Corolla gr and everything else right now
3:24
but I know what you’re going to say in
3:27
the comment section below before you
3:28
even finish this video You’re gonna say
3:30
oh but David they all have dealer
3:31
markups you’re absolutely correct and do
3:36
I know why this keeps happening when
3:38
customers don’t buy sports cars no why
3:41
do they keep doing this that’s a whole
3:42
nother video regardless of dealer
3:45
markups there’s a lot of Japanese
3:46
competition out there right now so when
3:49
I heard that the Acura Integra Type S
3:51
was coming I was pretty like optimistic
3:54
like okay they gotta do something really
3:57
drastic to kind of hang out with
3:58
everybody else that’s my opinion so the
4:01
regular Integra uses the Civic SI
4:03
powertrain which at first was a huge
4:05
bummer when unveiled but they had a
4:08
manual transmission around which was
4:09
which was great and everybody online
4:12
when I talked about this car was like
4:14
just wait for the type S just wait for
4:16
the type S Acura claims that in a
4:18
nutshell that the Acura Integra Type S
4:20
is going to be more like Road focused
4:22
more Posh more Exquisite and luxury
4:25
rather than the track Focus boy racer
4:28
Type R if you were to argue for the
4:30
Civic Type R on the road I thought it
4:33
was fine however however on sonoma’s
4:35
Racetrack if I was in R plus mode I got
4:38
crazy amounts of wheel hop from how
4:40
stiff the chassis was which is great for
4:43
a smooth road but on sonoma’s Racetrack
4:45
there’s these kind of bumpy areas and I
4:47
would get a ton of wheel hop but if you
4:49
weren’t like more of like Comfort
4:50
suspension in the individual mode and R
4:52
plus everything else it was really good
4:54
basically the Civic Type R pushes the
4:57
absolute limit of what front wheel drive
5:00
can do from the production floor I mean
5:03
300 plus wheel horsepower as we’ve
5:05
figured out from some Dyno testing that
5:07
people have done to the front wheels in
5:10
a stock car is pretty bananas the Civic
5:13
Type R is really fun to drive it’s great
5:15
it has the spirit of the last car The
5:17
Styling is a little bit more reduced you
5:19
know it’s not as over styled as a lot of
5:21
people tended to say about the last car
5:23
but there is one thing that they said
5:25
about that car that I’m gonna be like
5:27
not quite sure the camo according to
5:30
motor strand was actually more for like
5:32
a dramatic effect which I completely
5:34
agree because what are you hiding you
5:38
can see everything there’s nothing on
5:40
this type S that you’re like whoa I
5:43
wonder what’s under there it shows the
5:46
entire body line of the car it shows
5:48
everything it just doesn’t have badges
5:50
on it it’s like wow I wonder what car
5:52
brand that is let me hack into the
5:54
Mainframe and figure out what that is
5:58
I could launch a cyber nuke but it’ll
5:59
completely fry his system even with the
6:01
camo you do notice one major thing and
6:05
that is the exhaust and the diffuser and
6:07
the rear end it is improved from the
6:10
normal car the normal car looks almost
6:12
naked like with the dual exhaust ports
6:15
on it it just doesn’t look quite right
6:17
and with the more Civic Type R styling
6:19
of the exhaust and the diffuser it
6:21
starts to transform more into what you’d
6:24
think a modernized four-door Integra
6:26
would look like I’m not saying I
6:28
completely love it but it’s progress is
6:31
progress that’s what I’m trying to get
6:33
at it we’re getting there we’re getting
6:34
somewhere takes a little bit out of that
6:36
Genesis coupe look which leads me to
6:39
this point I wasn’t a fan of the normal
6:42
Integra as you guys know do I still want
6:45
the fantasy of having a two-door modern
6:48
looking dc2 Integra of course I do and
6:52
I’m sure there’s a bunch of enthusiasts
6:54
that would literally run to the
6:55
dealership right now and go buy one but
6:58
that’s just not how the world is right
7:00
now according to Acura and it’s probably
7:03
not going to happen my friend in there
7:06
congratulations so if we look at the
7:08
type S objectively and subjectively at
7:12
least we’re getting something at least
7:14
we’re not just getting that four-door
7:16
normal one and then nothing above it so
7:19
that’s a plus I have to say though that
7:22
Motor Trend states that this motor
7:24
sounds beautiful
7:29
wow from the outside it doesn’t sound
7:31
amazing not gonna lie I disagree when I
7:35
think of the new Civic type R’s engine
7:38
beautiful is not the sound that comes to
7:41
mind
7:45
when I think of beauty beautiful
7:46
soundtracks I think of like the non-lp
7:50
Gallardo or The Pagani Zonda or the 2JZ
7:54
or the rb26 or just very smooth Serene
7:59
engine sounds I don’t think that this
8:02
engine sounds smooth or Serene it’s
8:05
it’s kind of hard to describe to be
8:07
honest
8:09
foreign
8:13
[Music]
8:19
it’s not terrible it’s not amazing it’s
8:22
just kind of middle of the road for me
8:24
when it comes to tone of this engine
8:26
gone are the days of high revving
8:28
naturally aspirated Hondas
8:35
where you know you’re banging off rev
8:37
limiter and you’re like this is the best
8:38
day ever like I understand that those
8:41
times are gone but
8:43
still wouldn’t say it’s beautiful
8:45
sounding I do find it funny though that
8:47
in the article the Acura reps did not
8:49
want to say or admit that the suspension
8:52
tuning was probably similar to the Civic
8:55
Type R the new Acura Integra it’s no
8:58
secret that this is a card to sell to
9:00
the masses because it shares so much
9:02
with the Civic SI that’s how you save
9:05
money is sharing information between
9:08
different brands that are in your same
9:10
umbrella so why wouldn’t the Acura
9:12
Integra Type S copy its brother’s
9:15
homework 25.
9:18
I mean it’s The Logical decision for
9:20
research and development I wouldn’t be
9:22
surprised if it’s extremely similar or
9:25
maybe a tad softer that’s just
9:27
speculation but it’s probably true but
9:29
the pricing of this I am actually
9:32
worried about if it’s true Motor Trend
9:36
did this adjustment where they used kind
9:37
of what’s called like the 10 rule so if
9:39
you have a car that’s like a base model
9:41
trim and then you add 10 and that’s like
9:44
the next trim level it doesn’t apply to
9:46
everything but that’s kind of like how
9:48
Honda typically Works it’ll be like
9:50
somewhere around 48
9:52
000 for an Integra and that is kind of
9:57
hard to swallow to think about and I
9:59
know that times are different especially
10:01
after the world ended two two years ago
10:03
but still man imagine that with a dealer
10:07
markup that is just super hard to
10:09
stomach and there’s other options out
10:11
there that you can get for the same
10:12
price I personally would not buy a Acura
10:16
Integra Type S which is basically a Type
10:18
R with a fancier interior for nearly
10:22
fifty thousand dollars that’s just it’s
10:24
not me this is not my thing and that’s
10:26
okay but maybe it’s something for
10:28
somebody else to spend that much money I
10:30
know the development would be absolute
10:32
hell
10:33
for what I’m about to say but I really
10:36
wish that Honda and Acura would commit
10:40
to doing their own modernized all-wheel
10:43
drive system and this is a fantasy I
10:46
know but think about it if the type S
10:48
had all-wheel drive compared to the
10:50
Civic Type R that would give it more of
10:53
a selling point it would make people
10:55
talk about it way more and be way cooler
10:58
to be like hey did you hear about the
11:00
type S and get kind of some Buzz going
11:02
about Honda’s doing all-wheel drive
11:03
that’s amazing because what was the
11:05
biggest thing about the Corolla gr yes
11:07
it had a really unique three-cylinder
11:10
engine from the Yaris which has proved
11:12
to be an amazing engine but it was
11:14
all-wheel drive in that little itty
11:16
bitty hatch with the STI gone this could
11:19
be a moment for the Integra to come in
11:22
look I know that the Integra and the STI
11:24
were never that similar that’d be
11:26
another way to fill in that Gap to go
11:28
against the Corolla gr however it would
11:31
just be a lot more exciting to see what
11:33
Honda does with all-wheel drive because
11:35
they’re so used to tuning front-wheel
11:37
drive I would love to see it on the
11:39
Integra because that gives you the
11:41
reason to justify a bigger price tag not
11:44
just because you have some better
11:46
materials in the interior which is a
11:48
fair point to raise a price but not by
11:51
that much it would come off way more
11:53
about how much effort an r d is going
11:55
into this car rather than a copy and
11:58
paste model that’s what it feels like to
12:00
the Enthusiast Community even though we
12:02
all know that r d is extremely stressful
12:04
and very expensive so I just wanted to
12:06
give you my two cents on that part and
12:08
what do you think about that do you
12:09
think the type R should called it a type
12:12
bar do you think the type S should be
12:14
all-wheel drive
12:15
let me know in the comment section below
12:17
I think it was very cool of Acura to
12:19
make the teal X Type S very cool car but
12:23
the design language is just so similar
12:25
and maybe that should have been the
12:27
Integra if you’re going to do a
12:28
four-door but I digress am I excited
12:31
that Acura is building a upper trim
12:34
level version of the new Integra
12:36
absolutely I’m more optimistic about
12:39
this car than I was about the initial
12:42
one because that was kind of like in the
12:44
dark like are they going to build one
12:46
are they not going to build one like
12:48
what is this car why did you build this
12:51
this way and I think the weirdest thing
12:53
about it was talking to a few Acura reps
12:56
and trying to express why people were
13:01
upset and a lot of them that I talked to
13:04
just didn’t get it like they didn’t
13:07
quite understand so one of my major
13:09
points as a closing thought was why are
13:12
you comparing this to the dc2 Integra
13:15
well like why are you saying that it’s
13:17
just like the old one or it’s continuing
13:19
that card’s Legacy rather than saying
13:21
the Integra has a new life or going in a
13:24
different direction which is blatantly
13:27
clear and they’d be like what do you
13:28
mean
13:29
Like We are continuing that Legacy of
13:31
like
13:32
oh no but with this one at least they’re
13:36
going in a better Direction it I’m sure
13:39
it’s going to be very fun to drive but
13:41
really wish that we heard some news
13:43
about all-wheel drive that’s the main
13:45
thing for me Integra Type S what do you
