2021 Acura NSX | Review, Pricing, and Specs
Acura are known for their upscale take on mainstream SUVs and sedans, pairing advanced engineering with luxurious comfort and a generous amount of style. But with the 2021 Acura NSX, the automaker is operating at a higher level altogether. This is supercar to rival any on the planet for extravagant power and attention-grabbing looks, and it's now available at our Coquitlam, BC, dealership. Here's what to expect from a must-have test drive.
A single glance at the exterior is enough to know that the NSX is a car that deserves full respect. Low, wide, sleek, and extravagantly attention seeking, it's a vehicle that has no desire to remain anonymous. If first impressions count, this Acura has a strong advantage from the very beginning.
Power Under the Hood
The Acura NSX backs up its looks with genuine high-end power under the hood. Built around a hybrid powertrain as standard, the NSX pairs a 3.5L twin-turbo V6 gas engine with three electric motors for a mammoth combined output of 573 horsepower. The output of the gas engine and one electric motor is sent through a nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to rear-wheel drive, while the other two electric motors power one front wheel each, resulting in a versatile version of all-wheel drive.
The overall combination results in a searing 0-100kmh acceleration time of just 3.1 seconds when all four power sources are working in concert. However, the NSX can be switched to an ultra-quiet all-electric mode which will cause less disturbance in late-night upscale neighbourhoods.
A low level of fuel consumption might not be the focus of a typical supercar, but the 2021 Acura NSX boasts some surprisingly good figures thanks to its hybrid design. A city rating of 11.2L / 100km is way better than almost any of the competition, while the highway rating of 10.7L / 100km is highly respectable for a car of this power. If you're buying a car with the price tag of the NSX you may not be too concerned about saving a few cents at the gas station, but the corresponding low emissions are always welcome.
Interior and Infotainment
The NSX is sold as a supercar that's suitable for everyday use, and while the low-slung body means the interior is necessarily compact, it feels a lot more spacious and comfortable than other vehicles in the same performance bracket. Infotainment is handled by a 7" touchscreen with in-built navigation, while the nine-speaker sound system from ELS Studio fills the cabin with premium-quality audio.
2021 Acura NSX Pricing
There are no separate trims in the NSX lineup. The base model has a starting price of $189,000, but extensive customization options mean the final price can differ considerably depending on how upscale you want to take the model.
