2019 Acura NSX Price Review

Handle better, including previous options as standard

The iconic Acura NSX made a comeback in 2016, after 11 years of absence from the market. Powered by hybrid drivetrain for the first time, the second-generation NSX has just become better for the 2019 model thanks to a comprehensive mid-cycle refresher.

Already a powerful sports car, the Acura NSX now rises to a revised chassis that should increase agility on the road and track. Acura also made several design changes, but this is rather small and limited especially for new color options. But the Japanese company also added new standard features that cost more than a marginal facelift price increase. Find out more about that in the review below.

• Body Colored Upper Grille
• High-Gloss Trim
• High Glossy Carbon Fiber
• New Orange Cat
• New Paint Options for Brake Calipers

At first glance, NSX hasn’t changed a bit for the 2019 model.

So don’t feel awkward if you see it and wonder if you really saw a pre-facelift model. Need to be closer to pay attention to changes.

In front, the decoration of the silver front grille is now the body color. Whether this provides a more cohesive look or not is a matter of taste, but it distinguishes the NSX from other Acura vehicles. Below, the surround grille has high-gloss finishing, as well as air intake on the side. The same finish is applied to the rear bumper outlet mesh.

All carbon fiber parts are also finished in high-gloss now, including an optional decklid spoiler and all the features included in the Carbon Fiber Exterior package, such as the front splitter, side sills, and rear diffuser.

Acura also offers new paint options.

This is called Thermal Orange Pearl and pays tribute to 30 years of Acura racing cars with orange accents.

It also continues the tradition of the NSX color name inspired by motorsports venues and iconic corners. And needless to say, this is very striking and will make the NSX stand out on the road or in the parking lot.

The same orange paint can be selected for optional carbon-ceramic brake calipers. Standard iron brakes, on the other hand, can be had with red calipers. And that’s about that! This isn’t much, but this is what usually happens in a facelift: small changes, new colors, and revised trims – even when it comes to supercars.

• Indigo Blue Coating
• Full Red Skin Option
• Standard Sports Chair Now
• $ 4.700 Worth the Standard Now
• Lightweight Chairs Still Have No Cost Options

That is the same story in the cabin, where Acura adds new coating colors. First, there is a new Indigo Blue color for semi-aniline skin and Alcantara combo. Full leather seats, also optional, get new colors too. Previously available on Ebony, now can be ordered in red too. Just in case you like colorful cabins.

Fortunately, Acura added some new standard equipment as well.

The most important improvement was strength, a four-way sports chair, which is now included as a standard.

In the previous model, they were optional for $ 1,500. What’s more, the Satellite Connected Navigation system, ELS Studio premium audio systems, front and rear proximity sensors, and aluminum sports pedals, which were previously optional equipment, are now standard.

A lightweight and manually adjustable sports chair wrapped in Black Milano and Alcantara leather remains a no-cost option as the model comes out.

• Same Hybrid Drivetrain
• 3.5-Liter V-6
• Three Electric Motors
• Up to 573 Horsepower
• 0 to 60 in less than 3 seconds
• Highest Speed ​​At 191 Mph

Unlike the first NSX gene, the second generation sports using hybrid drivetrain.

Since its reintroduction in 2016, Japanese coupes get juice from 3.5-liter V-6 engines and three electric motors.

Mounted behind the seat, twin-turbo V-6 was developed specifically for this car and combines direct injection and port, along with variable time control. This plant produces 500 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque.

Of the three electric motors, one sits between the engine and nine speeds, dual-clutch transmission. This produces 47 horsepower and 109 pound-feet of twist from as low as 500 rpm. Two other motors rotate the front axle with 36 horses and 54 pound-feet. The entire drivetrain pumped out 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of twist, a number that remained unchanged from the model that came out.

Of course, this sports car is driven by all wheels, which increases sprint and off-the-line stability around the corner.

The settings allow it to reach 60 mph in less than three seconds, to go with a top speed of more than 191 mph.

While the hybrid combo carries a more unchanged, Acura made a significant upgrade to the chassis.


• Stiffer Stabilizer Bars
• Rear Hub Stiffer
• Recalibration AWD system
• New Continental Tires
• Faster on the Suzuka Track

Acura made various modifications to chassis components, especially to make the car more responsive.

Japan designed a larger front and rear stabilizer bar, components that increased stiffness by 26 percent in the front and 19 percent to the rear. The stiffness of the rear hub has also increased by six percent.

With this improved feature, Acura also recalibrates several electronics, including for SH-AWD systems, active magnetorheological dampers, power steering and VSA settings. This has been improved to suit the chassis chiffer arrangement and grippier tire setup.


Prices for NSX increased to $ 157,500 for the 2019 model, which contributed $ 1,500 premium. However, the Acura is actually a little cheaper because the new standard feature costs $ 4,700 in choices on the previous model. So basically you get a $ 3,200 discount in the option, not including all revised chassis components. Not a bad thing.
