I can already tell you it’ll be a four-door hatchback of sorts, mainly because Acura told everyone that in September. We’ve also seen spy photos of camouflaged Integra test mules, most recently captured by our friends at Car Bibles. Its overall shape is fairly similar to the 11th-gen Civic hatch, and we expect them to share a lot of parts.
Even though it won’t retain the two-door form we all remember the Integra for, we know it’ll have an available six-speed manual transmission. Acura confirmed this, though it hasn’t said which engine will power the car. A teaser video seems to feature a high-revving four-cylinder, which isn’t exactly surprising, and we’re still left to wonder which one it might be. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Civic Si‘s 200-horsepower, 1.5-liter turbo engine makes an appearance here as well; here’s to hoping for a Civic Type R-powered variant somewhere down the line, too.
