What the Critics Say

And it’s endlessly impressive just how seamlessly the engineers have managed to integrate three electric motors, a twin-turbo V-6, and a nine-speed dual-clutch into this mid-engine architecture. In fact, listening to the team articulate its goals, they have very exactly rendered the car they intended to build. It’s easy to live with, and ultra-friendly and approachable to drive” — Car and Driver

The 2020 Acura NSX might be the most affordable and reliable exotic sports car on the planet. Designed to chase down pricier supercars like the Lamborghini Huracan, the Ferrari 488 and the Ford GT, the NSX combines brilliant styling with an advanced suspension that delivers tenacious cornering abilities. Hand-built in the U.S. by a team of master technicians, the NSX is remarkably affordable considering the company it runs with.” — Autotrader

What’s New for 2020

After undergoing a series of revisions last year, the Acura NSX returns for the 2020 model year mostly unchanged. The sole change is the addition of a new exterior color option – Indy Yellow Pearl. This new color pays tribute to the original Spa Yellow which was available on the original NSX.

Performance & Styling

Just like the first-generation models, the Acura NSX remains a true driver’s sportscar with an inspired combination of linear acceleration, powerful braking power, and razor-sharp handling. The NSX Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) power unit electrifies all phases of driving. Its twin-turbocharged V6 engine creates powerful thrust, while the electric Direct Drive Motor and TMU respond to throttle inputs. A 9-speed DCT helps maximize the immense power band of the NSX. Four selectable drive modes allow you to tailor your ride to match your preferences.

Echoing the design philosophy of the original NSX, 2020 models are engineered to deliver a low center of gravity and a perfected weight distribution. The body structure is made up of space frame construction with high-rigidity aluminum and steel stampings which reduce weight. Optional high-performance carbon ceramic brakes, functional air vents, and expressive exterior color options help make the Acura NSX an instantly-recognizable icon.

Driver-Oriented Cabin

Enhanced visibility, comfortable support for the driver, and usable ergonomics help make the interior of the Acura NSX the perfect command center for an inspired drive. Both structurally rigid and lightweight, the standard NSX Sport Seats deliver greater comfort and support than those found in other supercars. Included as standard, the ELS Studio Premium Audio System gives you a total of 9 speakers with 580-watts of power. A standard Electronic Gear Selector allows the driver to choose a gear with a simple press of a button. Available LED interior ambient lighting adds cascading accents across the minimalist design of the cabin.
