report acura integra to get sh awd

The upcoming Acura Integra is slated to be available with the company’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), according to a report circulating on one of the forums managed by our corporate parents.

An email leaked by a Milwaukee-area Acura dealer also says that a 6-speed manual transmission will be available, but it’s unclear if the stick will be available with SH-AWD.

The availability of the manual isn’t a surprise — Acura has pretty much confirmed a stick would available. This email, however, uses the word “optional.”

We’ll know more soon, but the Integra is shaping up, on paper, to be fairly impressive, no matter how much it may end up sharing with the “lesser” Honda Civic.

Oh, and there’s this, direct from Acura’s media website: Pre-orders begin in March.

    Like the front much better than the previous Acuras that had the beaks. They gone back the the previous non beak generation which just looked much better. As for smaller engines all the manufacturers are chasing the smaller turbo engines which give great acceleration and meet the EPA but do not last but then the manufacturers don't want them to last.

    I can't think of a better car to get to work in....but it shouldn't be called an Integra..

    Sweet. Back in 1987, I narrowed my car choice down to a 16V GTI and an Integra. I went with the VW and never looked back....until the MK8. So after over 30 years driving Volkswagens and a sporadic Honda, I really wanted to buy an MK8 Golf R. I deliberated long and hard over the MMI, but ultimately decided this is not something I could live with. An AWD Integra is really the only comparison to the Golf R that I can think of. If they make the AWD version automatic only; however, they can keep it; I'll find myself an MK7.5 Golf R.

    Nope, still not regretting the 2022 Miata RF I brought home on Friday.
