Phew! The new Honda Integra will definitely have a manual gearbox

By topgear, 16 October 2021

We’ve known for a little while the Honda Integra is coming back. In the US as an Acura Integra, at least.

Acura is teasing the car bit by bit, but when the news is as positive as this, we don’t mind. It’s getting a manual gearbox.

“I’m thrilled to say Integra is returning to the Acura line-up with the same fun-to-drive spirit and DNA of the original,” said Jon Ikeda, Acura VP, “fulfilling our commitment to design, performance and the overall driving experience.”

The new-age 'Teg is described as having 'an available six-speed manual transmission’, suggesting an automatic will also be on offer, and potentially standard fit. No doubt we’ll get another weeny teaser in a few weeks to reveal another incremental detail.

But for now, enjoy some hard-worked 4cyl engine noise in the video above. And let us know what else you’d like to see from the new, five-door Integra below…
