What You Will Like

The Acura NSX is a high end sports car, competing with the Audi R8, the BMW i8, the Porsche 911 and the McLaren 570S. Very much in the mold of a modern supercar, the NSX asks drivers to make no compromises, achieving the seemingly impossible by using copious levels of technology. The number of near-600 horsepower supercars that achieve over 20 mpg in the city can be counted on one hand, and the NSX manages to do so despite its all-wheel drivetrain. The NSX will appeal to buyers who care about technology and innovation, but who still have a deep appreciation for heritage.

Introduction

We talk a lot about generations here, but this time it’s different: It’s been a generation since there’s been a new Acura NSX like this. A generation in people years.

Mechanically, it shows it. The original NSX was pure, while this one is wild: wildly synthetic in how it feels, but no less a masterful blending of modern mechanical parts, including electrical motors and batteries along with turbos, servos, clutches and gears.

It’s one of the most complex cars ever made, a supercar with scorching performance that can drive like a grocery-getter. Acura says it can accelerate from zero to sixty in three seconds flat, and hit a top speed of 191 miles per hour.

The 2017 Acura NSX can compete on engineering levels with other off-the-chart supercars like the McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, but its real-world rivals are more down-to-earth cars like the Ferrari 408GTB, Audi R8, Porsche 911 Turbo, or BMW i8.

The body structure is from aluminum and composite panels, with an optional carbon fiber roof. It was designed like a racecar, around aerodynamics, downforce and cooling, and has a front/rear weight ratio of 42/58 percent. It’s 176 inches long, with a wheelbase of 103.5 inches, or less than a Honda Civic. It’s way lower, at 47.8 inches, a bit wider, at 87.3 inches, and relatively heavy, at 3803 pounds, despite its lightweight structure, on account of all the mechanical and technological complexity and equipment.

The 2017 NSX is an all-wheel-drive hybrid, using a twin-turbocharged 75-degree 3.5-liter V6 making 500 horsepower, and a 9-speed dual-clutch transmission. The engine is direct injection and port injection; the turbos provide 15.2 psi of boost, using electric wastegate control. A 47-horsepower electric motor can add power to the engine or be a generator to charge the lithium-ion battery. There’s another twin motor located in the front center between the seats, feeding 36 horsepower to the front wheels, varying the power between them; Acura calls it Super Handling-All Wheel Drive, and it helps turn-in. This power drive unit can bring the total horsepower to 573, and can drive the car on its own at a low speed.

The V6 is mounted longitudinally in the car’s aluminum spaceframe (the original mid-engined NSX was mounted transversely), over the rear axle. The battery is mounted vertically behind the driver.

The suspension is aluminum double-wishbone with active adaptive magnetic-fluid dampers. The electric power steering is variable ratio. Front brakes are six-piston Brembo with 14.5-inch ventilated rotors and two-piece calipers, rears use four-piston monoblock calipers and 14-inch ventilated rotors. The standard tires are Continental Conti-Sport Contact 5P, 245/35R19s front and 305/30R20s rear. Pirelli tires are an option, as are soft Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for the track.

The engine uses a dry sump oil system that prevents oil starvation from centrifugal force in the corners during hard driving on the track.

The Integrated Dynamics System offers four modes: Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track. The driver can set the quickness of the steering, brakes (mechanical and regenerative), stability control, shock absorbers, engine, transmission, and SH-AWD. Quiet mode goes for fuel mileage and allows electric driving at slow speeds while restricting revs to 4000 rpm. It rates 21 miles per gallon, city or highway, by the EPA.

The NSX is hand-built at Honda’s factory in Ohio, and only 800 are planned to be built for 2017. It hasn’t been crash tested.

Lineup

Starting at more than $158,000, the NSX comes with standard with just about everything luxury, including LED ambient interior lighting and an infotainment system with seven-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth audio streaming, two USB ports, HD radio, Siri Eyes Free voice control, Apple Car Play, and Google Android Auto. But, strangely, not satellite radio.

Other equipment includes a multi-angle rearview camera, hill-start assist, front and front side airbags, curtain side airbags with rollover sensors, anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, and a tire-pressure monitor. High-tech safety features such as adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings, or automatic emergency braking aren’t available.

Still, if you want to spend nearly $200,000, it’s possible by adding optional performance and technology features such as carbon-ceramic brakes; carbon-fiber roof, engine cover and rear spoiler; or Alcantara headliner. A Technology Package adds a nine-speaker ELS audio system, navigation, AcuraLink telematics service, and front and rear parking sensors.

Walkaround

The new NSX is a sharp, clean wedge with an unfortunate extreme and cartoonish grille that destroys any classic supercar style. Acura designers need to go to Ferrari school and learn from the Italians what style is all about. But maybe the grille is appropriate because it serves to announce that this car is nothing if not a huge, successful compromise. It shouts out of a very big mouth, “I’m the hottest and flashiest Acura ever made!”

The massive mesh air intakes at the corners are fine, powerfully functional, and the framed wing-like LED lights are thin and lovely, but the big mouth in the middle steals your attention and makes you want to turn away, like scary clown lips.

From the side and three-quarter rear, when you don’t have to look at the grille, it looks fabulous. Especially from the rear, because it has gorgeous clean hips, broad and chiseled fenders that begin the wedge forward. And the side has sharp aerodynamic edges, with cool ducts all over the place.

Air flows over the low roof and down the backlight, guided into the engine bay and to the clutch cooler, through cooling ducts on the rear fenders; the air comes out through large ducts at the rear. There’s a conservative spoiler that, along with a diffuser and telegraphic taillight slots, generates downforce.

Interior

There was a lot of emphasis put on ergonomics in the cabin, so much that Acura came up with a design name for it: human-centric. One example of this human-centrism is that the head of a six foot-six inch driver can fit under the roof, and his or her legs can fit under the steering wheel and onto the pedals.

That said, human-centric might only apply to humans willing to come up with extra cash in order to be centric in Acura’s eyes. The standard four-way manual seat, with a fixed bottom cushion, isn’t as humanly centric as the optional power leather-and-suede seat with lumbar adjustment.

One shocking contradiction is the Honda Pilot-like transmission pushbuttons. There’s no lever for the right hand. At least there are paddle shifters, in addition to the pushbuttons that you might not be able to bear to use because they remind you that your $160,000 or $180,000 car borrows parts from a Honda SUV.

Another example of Acura’s human-centricism might be the basic arrangement of controls on the center console, what Acura calls Simple Sports Interface. However the 8.0-inch digital display isn’t exactly centered around the human, or even pointed toward him or her; the virtual gauges hang on an odd plane, tilted away from the driver. The screen has a big tach that shows in different colors, based on the driving mode.

The flat-topped and flat-bottomed steering wheel contains controls that function a second screen, for the audio and available navigation. Around that screen there are swaths of metallic trim that also outline the dashboard and the rest of the controls. So is a carbon-fiber trim kit that looks just like similar treatments in other luxury and performance cars. That is to say, relentlessly showy and somewhat inexpensive.

Metallic trim notwithstanding, the cabin is plush, with a lot of leather and Alcantara. Lightly treated leather is available.

With the width of the NSX, there’s good room for occupants, but not so much for luggage or cargo. The trunk is tiny, at 4.4 cubic feet. And while the forward visibility is excellent, with thin windshield pillars and a low dash, the rearward visibility is wretched, with thick rear pillars and the low seating position. The standard multi-angle rearview camera, and parking sensors, are all the driver has to back up. Look at it this way: you never have to turn your head.

The sounds inside the cabin are sweet, including sweet quiet, if that’s what you like, in Quiet mode. There’s also a tube carrying the exhaust into the cabin, if that’s what you like. The irony is that the natural exhaust, heard from the outside, is ordinary, un-supercar-like. It’s enhanced in the cabin. So you’re kind of fooled into thinking your car sounds cool, when it’s really boring to others.

Driving Impressions

Acura says that their engineers spent years working on algorithms that simulate the truest driving signals, to develop the car that synthesizes those signals. We have to scratch our heads to figure that one out. We know, after driving the NSX on the track, that the seat-of-the-pants experience is real enough. But it was created, copied from paper and computer readouts, it didn’t come naturally? Is there anything wrong with that? Is it the future?

The handling is progressive, which is how the car can be both a tame grocery-getter and scorching supercar. It can be driven in traffic at 30 mph without being difficult, and it can be driven quickly without feeling loose, pushy, or twitchy. It’s seamless between the two places. On the track it likes to driven rhythmically, early turn-in and throttle lift, stable under braking while turning.

Of course, given that there are four modes, there are four driving behaviors.

In Quiet mode, the NSX runs on electric power as much as it can, under 4000 rpm. Sport, the default mode, quickens throttle and shift response, raises the revs, and begins the piping of engine sounds into the cabin.

In Sport+, the display around the tach changes from blue and grey to yellow and red, and the car offers up the full 474 foot-pounds of torque, more sound into the cabin, and heavier steering.

In Track mode, the sound pipes open wide, the air conditioning and audio system goes blank, and launch control is enabled. Track mode maintains the battery 60 percent of full charge, to keep the performance the same from lap to lap. The transmission holds the lower gears in corners, and only upshifts on the straights. It’s programmed so well that it’s hard to be quicker by using the paddles. We accept it, but we’re not sure we like it. It reduces the driver to a point-and-steer robot. Well, the driver is still allowed to gas and brake, but with stability control and anti-lock brakes, the car prevents him or her from going too far. Maybe a better word would be that it protects the driver.

The big Brembo brakes impressively combine mechanical and electric power, regenerated from the motors and regulated by the mode. And electric servo combines the motor braking with friction braking to provide predictable and steady braking. Sensors translate the speed and pressure of the driver’s foot to the resistance of the pedal, and it’s nearly perfect.

The all-wheel-drive system covers for unsmooth or over-aggressive driving, trading off some pinpoint precision. A misjudged turn-in point can induce some understeer, but the stability systems quickly catch. If your rhythm is correct, the car will respond with precision. Lift, brake, steer smoothly, and the front motors cleanly blend torque to the outside wheel.

Coming out of a turn at speed, you roll on the throttle, unwind the steering wheel, and the NSX will race away from the apex feeling totally neutral. The front motors provide torque or limit spin, while the limited-slip rear differential keeps the rears planted. You can choose how sticky you want to get, with the tires; like in Formula 1, you have hard, medium, and soft, with Continental, Pirelli, or Michelin.

Summary

The NSX leaves us with ambivalence. In the end, we think we prefer our supercar to be more of a beast. Sure, it’s brilliantly fast, brakes perfectly, and handles impeccably. But the over-exposed styling (ugly grille), impure high-tech instrumentation, and soulless exhaust note are all dealbreakers. And that’s pretending that we have $160,000 to spend on a grocery-getter with no storage space.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
