New for 2019

Acura updated its supercar for 2019 with chassis enhancements, revised software tuning, a new standard tire, gloss black finish on exterior trim (previously matte), body color front grille garnish (previously silver), a standard Technology package, standard sport seats with semi-aniline leather and Alcantara, a new Thermal Orange Pearl exterior color, and two new interior color options.

Trim Levels

The mid-engine NSX coupe is Acura's flagship supercar.

2019 Acura NSX: The NSX comes in one trim that includes 19-inch forged aluminum front wheels, 20-inch forged aluminum rear wheels, Continental Sport Contact 6 tires, Brembo six-piston front calipers with four-piston rear calipers, flush-mounted automatic pop-out door handles, automatic LED headlights, an Alcantara headliner, perforated semi-aniline and Alcantara-trimmed heated seats, leather-trimmed instrument panel and doors panels, a 7.0-inch center touchscreen, an 8.0-inch instrument panel screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, and a nine-speaker ELS audio system.

The NSX can be optioned with upgraded Pirelli Trofeo R tires, carbon ceramic brakes (with silver, red, or orange calipers), carbon fiber interior and exterior trim, and lightweight Milano leather and Alcantara-trimmed manually adjustable sport seats.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The all-wheel-drive NSX hybrid powertrain consists of a 500-hp, 406 lb-ft of torque 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 paired to a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic and three electric motors. One motor is located between the engine and transmission (47 hp, 109 lb-ft) and two are located in the front, one for each wheel. Total system power is rated at 573 hp and 476 lb-ft and the coupe delivers an EPA-rated 21/22 mpg. In Motor Trend testing, the 2017 Acura NSX hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and stopped from 60 mph in just 95 feet.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The NSX has 42.8 inches of legroom and the cargo area behind the engine is 4.4 cubic feet, about the size of a large suitcase.

Technology

Standard tech for the 2019 NSX includes a 7.0-inch center touchscreen, an 8.0-inch instrument panel screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a nine-speaker ELS audio system, two USB ports, and a navigation system. SiriusXM satellite radio is optional.

What We Think

In a comparison between the 2017 Acura NSX and the 2017 Nissan GT-R, the NSX beat the GT-R: "Although we're disappointed that the torque-vectoring, mid-engine supercar didn't pummel the updated but still old Nissan (or come close to the performance offered by "conventional" $200,000 mid-engine supercars), it did edge out the Nissan in back-road speed, track speed, comfort, and specialness. "  Additionally, the NSX has a smoother transmission, a nicer interior, is a better back road machine, and is easier to drive on a track. But the GT-R has more cargo room and better steering.

In a First Drive review of the refreshed 2019 Acura NSX, we were impressed with how the NSX tracks straight on rough asphalt under hard braking but didn't care for the electronically enhanced engine noises. We liked how the transmission "shifts instantly at the 7,500 rpm redline," keeping the engine in its powerband. On the track, "the NSX prefers a later turn-in for a more precise attack. The effect is predictable, but it takes some getting used to." Quiet mode operates on all-electric power but "…is short-lived, far below the advertised speed threshold. The V-6 kicks in even at partial throttle, acting as nothing more than a really loud generator to keep the batteries charged."

We concluded the review by saying, "With a base price of $159,300, it might not provide a totally raw, visceral experience, but then again, it's not designed to—at least not in the traditional sense. … [The NSX proves that] technology and emotion can happily coexist, counterintuitive as that might seem."
