2023 Acura Integra vs. 2022 Honda Civic Si


2023 Acura Integra vs. 2022 Honda Civic Si


Similar in many ways-including a shared platform and mechanicals-the 2023 Acura Integra and the 2022 Honda Civic Si are fierce competitors in the sub-compact car segment.

While it's not easy to choose between the Acura Integra and the Honda Civic Si, as they are both stellar vehicles, our team at Maus Acura North Tampa puts them to the test!


Performance + Engine

The 2023 Acura Integra and the 2022 Honda Civic Si share the same VTEC 1.5-liter turbo I4 engine that produces 200 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft of torque. Both vehicles are also front-wheel drive.

The Integra has the same six-speed manual or CVT transmission that can be found in the Civic Si, but the 2023 Integra is the first Acura Integra to ever come equipped with a turbocharged engine, making it quite the special vehicle.

Since it is based on the Civic Si, buyers have high expectations about the Integra's performance, but not to worry, the Integra will not disappoint. With a limited-slip differential in the manual version, allowing for greater traction, and an adaptive suspension paired with custom drive modes, you will be able to fully utilize the Integra's power when you are behind the wheel.

The new iteration of the Civic Si for 2022 has a newly designed flywheel that is 26% lighter and increases acceleration when out on the road. It also has a new "Helical" slip-differential that offers more power and torque. 



Both vehicles got an exterior facelift for the current model year. The Acura Integra has a liftback design for the trunk lid and features four doors with a capacity for five passengers. Its Diamond Pentagon grille takes center stage, and its sides have functional air curtains on the ends of its bumpers. With its slightly sloped roof, the Integra has a coupe-style look.

You can choose between the 17, 18, or 19-inch alloy wheels that come with a stunning brushed metal look.

Unlike the Civic, the Civic Si features a honeycomb-shaped grille with a red "Si" pattern inside indicating its sportiness. The rear is equipped with a new spoiler and dual exhausts.


Interior + Tech

The Acura Integra shows off its luxuriousness, even in the base model, with faux leather electronically adjusted and heated sport seats. The lower trims come with a standard 7-inch infotainment system, but buyers can upgrade to a 9-inch infotainment screen with a 10.2 infotainment instrument cluster as well as a 5.3-inch heads-up display.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also come standard as well as wireless capabilities. The base model comes with an 8-speaker setup but moving up the trim levels you will get an ELS 3D sound system with a 16-speaker setup.

In the Civic Si, the sporty theme continues throughout the interior with red-contrasting stitching across the interior, plus a red-trim finished dashboard and door panels to complete the look. As for tech, the Si offers all the basics with a 7-inch combo digital instrument cluster with a 9-inch infotainment screen and a premium 12-speaker Bose sound system. It also comes equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities.


Safety Features

Both vehicles come with ample safety and driver assistance features.

The 2023 Acura Integra comes equipped with AcuraWatch which is the same as the Honda Sensing system, so the Integra has all the same safety features as the 2022 Civic Si including:

       Road Departure Mitigation System

       Traffic Sign Recognition

       Lane Keep Assist

       Lane Watch

       Collision Mitigation Braking System

       Cross Traffic Monitor

       Blind Spot Information System

       Adaptive Cruise Control

Take note, since the Integra has a standard CVT, it also comes equipped with Traffic Jam Assist as well as the standard AcuraWatch Single Camera System.


Bottom Line

Both the 2023 Acura Integra and 2022 Honda Civic Si are great compact sedan options for different buyers. The Acura Integra gives you more luxury and refinement at a lower price than most luxury sedans, while the Honda Civic Si is a perfect blend between sportiness and daily-driver capabilities.

Bottom line? Though the Integra is a little more expensive than the Civic Si, you get an upgraded Integra exterior, a standard CVT, unique exhaust notes, and 8-way adjustable seats for the extra money. Plus, depending on the trim you choose, the Integra gets even better with 12-way adjustable seats and a premium sound system that outclasses the Bose System in the Civic Si. You just can't beat the luxuriousness of the Integra!
