Engine & Performance of Acura NSX Coupe: 

The hybrid electric powertrain of Acura NSX is a combination of a 3.5 liters V6 twin-turbocharged engine with 3 electric motors that generate the horsepower of 573bhp and 476 pound-feet of torque and offers a 9-speed automatic transmission. The rear wheels are powered by one of the electric motors while the front wheels are powered by the other two electric motors. It offers four driving modes including quiet, sport mode, sport plus, and track mode. The performance of quiet and sport modes is efficient with light and accurate steering handling. The sport plus and track modes offer power steering with more weight and the steering is crisp. The fuel economy of the sports car is also satisfactory. It gives a mileage of twenty-two miles per gallon in the city and twenty-eight miles per gallon on highways. It can accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in just three seconds and it can accelerate very impressively even at low to medium speeds. The braking system of the car is also very efficient with easy modulation. The stability control and grip of the car are also very effective and it gives confidence even to inexperienced drivers.


Exterior, Interior Design & Features:

There are very minor changes in the design of the model of the Acura NSX Coupe. It is changed in its angular creases appearance which is very appealing. There is a pointed nose in front along with a black grille that gives a rocket-like appearance. There is air intake mesh on the front along with the grille  The rear has LED tail lights along with a carbon fiber deck lid spoiler and the rear bumper has outlet mesh with high loss treatment and offers a carbon fiber exterior package. It is a two-door car that has a total length of 170.6 inches, a width of 76.3 inches, and a height of 47.8 inches.





The interior of the car is very stylish with comfortable seats and cushion bolsters provided with seats wrapped in leather. The roofline of the car is a bit lower so taller passengers and drivers face difficulty getting in and out of the car although the shoulder and headroom for the drivers are satisfactory and it provides good visibility sideways, however, the front visibility is also fantastic. The driver’s seating position can be adjusted easily according to the driver’s height and the steering wheel is also very natural and easy to control. The quality of the paint and material used inside the cabin is excellent. It is a sports car so it does not give a large amount of cargo area but still, it offers a 4.4 cubic feet cargo area between the engine and the rear bumper, and two small bags can easily be fitted in it. Apart from this, it is also provided with cup holders, storage bins, and storage cabins for phones and sunglasses. The technology of NSX is very excellent. There is a seven inches touch screen on the front with nine Studio stereo speaker systems. The system is compatible with Android Auto and Apple Car play but some complaints are faced because of the infotainment system the reviewers say that the system looks outdated with a lack of redundant buttons and it is complex to use. The cabin noise is a bit aggressive and the voice control system is a bit difficult to operate because the cabin noise makes the voice commands ineffective even when there is no noise in the cabin, the voice control system is complex to control.



Major Competitors:

Mercedes Benz AMG GT gives tough competition to Acura NSX because GT R is a thrill to drive with a lot of the latest and exciting features but it is available at a high price as compared to Acura NSX. On the other hand, Porsche 911 and Audi R8 are also major competitors of the Acura NSX. Both cars offer remarkable performance with stylish interior and exterior looks along with a tremendous infotainment system that is much better than the Acura’s NSX.
