Acura today announced the return of the Integra during its annual appearance at Monterey Car Week. The legendary nameplate, one of two models in the original product lineup when Acura launched in 1986, will rejoin the brand’s product portfolio as a new compact premium entrant next year. The Integra was last sold here in 2001.

“The Integra is back,” said Jon Ikeda Vice President and Acura Brand Officer. “I’m thrilled to say Integra is returning to the Acura lineup with the same fun-to-drive spirit and DNA of the original, fulfilling our commitment to Precision Crafted Performance in every way – design, performance and the overall driving experience.”

More details about the new Acura Integra will be available closer to its 2022 introduction, but a teaser sketch reveals angular styling in keeping with current Acura trends, along with LED-accented headlamps and an embossed Integra logo on the front bumper.
