2023 Acura Integra is getting a CVT standard, according to leaked trim chart

The 2023 Acura Integra continues to disappoint — is what followers of the unique are more likely to say upon listening to that the usual transmission for the upcoming sport sedan is a CVT. Acura made an enormous deal out of the truth that the revived Integra would have a guide transmission previous to its reveal. Nevertheless, if a newly leaked spec chart is to be believed, most trim ranges will solely get a constantly variable transmission.

Beforehand some believed that Acura would supply their 10-speed computerized within the Integra, however specs posted to the Integra Discuss discussion board, point out that’s not the case. They present three ranges of trim: base, A-Spec, and A-Spec with Tech Package deal. All include the CVT, besides the A-Spec Tech, which could be optioned with a six-speed guide transmission.

It is commonplace anymore for carmakers to supply guide on solely the highest-spec trims. Mazda, for instance, does the identical by providing its guide a single grade, the Premium bundle for the Mazda 3 hatchback. Whereas the guide was as soon as the most affordable and most fuel-efficient possibility, nowadays the considering is that solely true fanatics, ones who can be prepared to pay extra to possibility out their automotive to the gills, would care about whether or not they row their very own or not.

As well as, the leak seems to listing the Integra’s coloration palette for each inside and exterior. Curiously, the Kind R-inspired yellow of the idea would not seem like on the menu. As a substitute, we get purple, blue, white, silver, grey, and black. The A-Spec does get one unique hue, Apex Blue Pearl, to set it aside. Interiors get a alternative of black, orchid or purple, however not all of them could be paired with all exterior paints.

We do not suppose that the guide’s look on solely the highest trim is an issue per se. We do not know what the Integra’s Tech Package deal will embody, however on automobiles just like the TLX or RDX it consists of options like a premium audio system, navigation, and driver help security alerts. These aren’t essentially gadgets a real fanatic driver who prefers a purer driving expertise would need. Nonetheless, we’re glad Acura’s providing a stick in an setting downright hostile to sedans, compacts, and manuals. We do suppose, although, that the Integra A-Spec (with out the Tech Package deal) might need been the candy spot for the guide. However nobody requested us.
