Acura seems to be implying a 6speed. Though it is interesting that the floormat says RSX type S in 4th gear


Edit: I get it now. Each gear is a different Integra generation. 4th is the RSX. 5th looks newer with what looks like the same pushbutton automatic as my 2020MDX next to it, is that the new Integra interior? Or is it some other current stick (did the ILX ever have one), and is the new Integra the unseen 6th gear?

Or would Acura be so bold as to put 6-speed stick-controlled version of a paddle shifter with an auto clutch? Even my automatic RSX has a looks-like-stick shifter.

Direct copy paste of the description from the youtube video you linked:

"Emotional performance. A fun-to-drive spirit. An available 6-speed manual transmission. The all-new Acura Integra. More details about the Integra will be available closer to its 2022 introduction.

Vehicles Featured:
• 1986 Integra (Gen 1)
• 1991 Integra (Gen 2)
• 2001 Integra Type R (Gen 3)
• 2006 RSX Type S (Gen 4)
• New Integra (Gen 5)

Learn more about the new Integra here: https://acura.com/integra"


So i think 5th gear answers all your questions being that is a sneak peak of the "New Integra (Gen 5)".

Dusted off the account just so I could post about my excitement for the new Integra.
Me too.

I’m in. I moved from my EP3 to a Sport Touring FK7 hatchback. I like it a lot, but I’m a little… I dunno, I feel like the ‘22 Civic hatch got watered down to the point of being anonymous. I’m getting old — I want a little childish excitement.

I’m cool with the idea of a 5-door Integra. Yeah, a lot of it is because my wife now vetoes any talk of a 3-door, but it’s honestly nicer to have the extra doors when I need to carry more than two people.

Hopefully it’ll leave room for another small sports coupe in the same (or cheaper) bracket.

Dude I still have my ep3 along with my DC5s. Don't you have a spare family car so the wife won't complaining if a coupe/3 door integra pops up?

Lol the "working class". Acura is a luxury brand. They aren't aimed to be affordable. If you can't afford a new Acura, go buy a new Honda Civic Si for $25k.They already sell a 2 door sports car with a manual.
  • New Miata? Starts at $26K
  • Scion FR-S started at $25K

When the RSX Type-S came out, the MSRP was about $23k. Adjust for inflation today, that's $34k, not even including taxes, destination fee or interest rates on your car loan.

So if you can't afford a +$25k sports car, you can forget about getting the new Integra, even if they come out with a 2 door option.
i have the window sticker for my 2002. it was almost $25,000 with everything

We've got her a CR-V, but we treat them both like family cars. She also doesn't want to learn stick, so part of her justification for me getting the CVT-equipped Sport Touring (versus the Sport manual or splurging for a CTR) was that if we're out with friends, I can drink and she'd drive us home.

Interesting spec sheet. If it is fake, someone went through a whole lot of trouble to make it look/feel like how Acura specs out their models these days. If it is real, I'll be paying attention again as it is the first sign of a 2-door.


Pricing seems where I would have expected it, after paying around $25k for an RSX 20 years ago.

Seems like the typical Acura "no top of the line" problem when it comes to features. I'd lose the windshield deicer and heads up display of the Advance to get the type S, but gain sport looks/wheels/suspension/adaptive dampers/brakes. Most importantly for me is whether the Type S loses any comfort for the sake of sportiness. So now I can't pre-order and have to test drive if a 2-door comes out, oh well...

And their promise of a coming Hybrid also makes me trigger-shy...

A number of news outlets are saying Acura will have a reveal of the Integra on its website at 8:45PM eastern on Nov 11. And it should be available to see live at next week's LA auto show.

Sad that the 2 door is a fake. Looks like I'll keep the RSX and buy my daughter a used Civic or something. Acura just lost $40k from me by not selling a 2-door.

That’s also what it says in the marketing email that Acura sent earlier today.

I mean, did you honestly expect a 2 door? No one is making coupes anymore, at least not cheap ones for mass consumption.

All the other JDM coupe badge revivals are coming out as coupes (except the eclipse).

I heard the Civic SI coupe and 4dr hatch were being discontinued, and it looks like the 4dr hatch never went anywhere and was just rebranded as an Integra. Was hoping the coupe could be the same story.

The JDM generation is older and able to afford higher end remakes of the classics, just like the american hotrod generation did last decade. Since Acura is putting in fun/impractical things like a 6speed, you would think they could do fun/impractical looks of a 2door too.

What other revivals are coming out? The Z comes to mind. What am I missing? And for what it's worth, the Z was never anything but a coupe. The Integra (aside from 4th-gen) was always offered in sedan trims.

And as for all of us being older and able to afford "higher end remakes of the classics," is that what this is? Or is this an attempt to create a competitor for the the A4 and CT4 space using the Integra name? If it's the latter, then it's not necessarily aimed at everyone who drove a DC2 or DA coupe back in the day, and a 4 door is to be expected.

Also, Honda is nothing if not ultra conservative. They only recently gave in and hopped on the forced induction train when their competitors had been doing it for decades. It doesn't surprise me AT ALL that they're doing this as a sedan seeing as there's no coupe anywhere else in their current lineup.
