2023 Acura Integra vs. Its Competition

2023 Acura Integra
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The Integra shares its powertrain with the Honda Civic Si, which lacks the available adaptive dampers on the Integra.

The redesigned Subaru WRX will not have an STI performance variant this year, and the Impreza offers a more traditional hatchback style.

Also redesigned this year, the Volkswagen Golf GTI and Golf R hot hatches return, but the lower-priced GTI lines up better with the base Integra.

Sold as a sedan or hatch, the Mazda 3’s 2.5-liter turbo-4 outmuscles the Integra, unless or until an Integra Type S arrives.

With Hyundai discontinuing the Veloster three-door hatchback in all but N performance line, and with that line expanding throughout its small car lineup, the Elantra N compact sedan packs a punch.
