pros

Dramatic styling; advanced hybrid drivetrain; all-wheel drive; stunning performance

model highlights

At the heart of any supercar is its drivetrain and the NSX is no different. Power is supplied by a 500 horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 engine, mated to an electric motor that sends power to the rear wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission. The front wheels are also powered, utilizing a pair of electric motors, for a total system output of 573 horsepower, enough to provide for neck-snapping acceleration. With the bulk of the engine weight located behind the driver, but in front of the rear axle, the NSX also turns as well as it goes, its low center of gravity aiding it in achieving excellent cornering speeds. All-wheel drive ensures plenty of grip upon corner exit.

The NSX comes in just one well-appointed trim level. Standard features include LED headlamps, Keyless entry, powered and heated side mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, a remote garage door opener, a leather trimmed steering wheel, a leather trimmed instrument panel, leather seats, a 7-inch Display Audio system with 8 speakers including a subwoofer, Bluetooth streaming and a Siri eyes free mode.

Options on the NSX include Alcantara seats, a variety of wheel designs, carbon-ceramic brakes, a carbon fiber exterior package, that includes a bare carbon fiber roof, an Alcantara headliner, and a premium stereo with SiriusXM radio.

model news

After a decade's absence, an all-new NSX returned for the 2018 model year. The legendary supercar returns for 2019 with no major changes.

value writeup

The Acura NSX competes with the likes of the Audi R8, the BMW i8, the Porsche 911 and the McLaren 570S. In every way a modern supercar, the NSX asks drivers to make no compromises, achieving the seemingly impossible by using the latest in hybrid electric technology. Very few 600-horsepower supercars can even come close to achieving over 20 city mpg, something the NSX manages to do even with a state-of-the-art all-wheel drivetrain.
