2024 Acura Integra Type S Debuts As Cadillac CT4-V Rival10
Japanese automaker Acura just unveiled the 2024 Acura Integra Type S, adding a new high-performance variant to the four-door’s lineup. The closest rival from the GM camp would be the Cadillac CT4-V. The new 2024 Acura Integra Type S goes on sale this coming June.
Outside, the 2024 Acura Integra type S offers unique exterior styling and a wider stance with 2.8-inch blistered fenders. In back, you’ll find a trio of center-mounted exhaust outlets and a rear diffuser element, while larger air intakes and a hood vent are up front. Customization options include a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler and carbon fiber mirror caps, as well as a black illuminated front Acura badge.
The cabin boasts a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, head-up display, and 16-speaker ELS Studio 3D audio system, plus a 10.2-inch digital driver display. A pair of heated sports seats are up front.
Under the hood, the 2024 Acura Integra type S is motivated by the same turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine equipped by the Honda Civic Type R hatchback. Output is rated at 320 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, a 5-horsepower bump over peak figures for the Civic, and an increase of 120 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque compared to the standard Acura Integra model. Output hits the front wheels exclusively through a six-speed manual transmission.
For the handling spec, the new Integra Type S also features the same dual-axis front suspension setup as the Civic Type R, which should help to eliminate torque steer. Four-piston Brembo front brakes and a limited-slip differential are included as well.
Grip is provided courtesy of 265/30 Michelin Pilot Sport 4S high-performance summer tires, which are wrapped around lightweight 19-inch wheels.
The 2024 Acura Integra Type S will make its formal public debut at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in Southern California this weekend.

What a joke. It a competitor to the civic si, not any rear wheel drive car.
Far cry from the Caddy.
So this Japanese car is just a more expensive Civic? It can NEVER compete against a Cadillac sports sedan, maybe as a cheaper car with more expensive servicing and parts.
Eh, it depends on what you mean by “compete”. The Type R was 8 seconds faster at C&D’s Lightning Lap than the CT4-V (and only 4 seconds off the CT4-V BW). Acceleration stats favor the CT4-V below 100 MPH, but handling measurements are noticeably better on the Type R. The CT4-V will feel more solid though and probably be more comfortable and quieter. If you want a manual and can’t jump up to the Blackwing, there is no choice.
The civic type R is one hell of a performer on the track. I can see some don’t have a clue. Also, this will be priced with the CT4-V and makes me wish a manual was offered.
When are these manufacturers going to stop glueing these damn tablets on top of the dash. I feel the need to take a bat to it every time I see one. Terrible.
HEY TONEY , YOU CAN GET THE CT4-V WITH A 6 SPEED MANUAL
Not a regular V which this car compares closer to on price. Imagine all the torque from the 2.7 controlled with a manual. How did Acura get it right.
To be fair, you can’t get a Type R or Type S with an automatic either.
Not even close to my CT4V Blackwing with a 472Hp Twin Turbo. The track you say? I’d love to lap one these Acuras on the track
