If you answered “about $50,000” you’d be right on the money.

Acura just announced that the 2024 Acura Integra Type S will go on sale at dealerships later next month with an MSRP of $50,800. (Can’t wait that long? Acura will be opening up “limited reservations” at Acura.com/Integra on May 11 starting at 10:00 p.m. PT.)

To better put that into perspective, the 2023 Civic Type R stickers at $43,795–a roughly $7000 difference.

So, is the Integra Type S really worth $7000 more than a Civic Type R, even considering it gets 5 more ponies than the Honda?

Of course, that’s ignoring any sort of dealer markups we’re likely to see as well.

Also worth noting? The Hyundai Elantra N starts at $32,900. (Or $34,400 if you want the dual-clutch.)

Edit:

Didn't want to forget about the VW Golf R, which starts at $44,740.

Nope.  And I work at an Acura dealer.

Without markups it would be a very worthy consideration.

This is the answer. The EN is an amazing machine and has a superior warranty.

I'm stuck in the 1990's. Civics are $20k. Integras are $28k.

Doing a quick check online i wanted to see how much an original Type R i saw on a dealer lot back in the day costs in today's dollars. from the web assuming $1 in 1999 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $1.81 today, an increase of $0.81 over 24 years. The particular example I saw (~$26K) would be around $47K, so less than the current model, but in the same ball park. I sat in the new Integra S and while I didn't drive it I'm sure it's a great car. My personal issue is I viewed the original Type R as a one of a kind, generation special car. I feel there are currently a few hot hatches/sport compacts that compete with the current Type R as alternatives. For me, at that price I don't see myself seeking one out.

If I needed a vehicle like that, it would definitely be in consideration.

I'd be all over the Elantra if they weren't so damn ugly. And I'm someone who doesn't nitpick aesthetics on cars... 

But I'm not sure they could make it any less attractive. It's Pontiac Aztec, PT Cruisers level of ugly for me.
