Drivers looking for the latest in luxury supercars are sure to find much to be pleased about in the 2017 Acura NSX, available now to Orland Park, Tinley Park, and Naperville drivers at Joe Rizza Acura. Thanks to its capable powertrain and abundant features, it edges out the competition, but for those who are still on the fence, we’ve matched it up against one of its rivals, the 2017 Audi R8. Read on to see why we think the 2017 NSX comes out on top, then stop by Joe Rizza Acura to see it for yourself.


Under the hood, the 2017 Acura NSX boasts a powerful engine that sets it apart from the rest of its class:

  • 2017 Acura NSX: Each 2017 NSX is outfitted with a twin-turbocharged DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that works with three additional motors to produce up to 573 hp and 406 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
  • 2017 Audi R8: The base R8 engine is a 5.2L V10 powertrain capable of only 540 hp, which means that drivers will have to shell out extra to upgrade to a more powerful engine if they want to match what the 2017 Acura NSX offers.


The 2017 Acura NSX offers drivers a full suite of high-tech amenities geared towards both comfort and convenience:

  • 2017 Acura NSX: Each Acura NSX of this generation will provide access to a multi-view camera that gives drivers a view not only of the area directly behind the vehicle, but at multiple angles around it as well. It also offers Apple Car Play and Google Android Auto, letting you sync your smartphone device to your vehicle for further ease of use.
  • 2017 Audi R8: The 2017 Audi R8 offers a rearview camera, but it is unable to offer a comprehensive look at all areas surrounding your vehicle. While the R8 also has technology packages that enable Bluetooth and USB capability like the NSX, its driver infotainment system is not specifically set up for your Apple or Android device.

Which Vehicle is Right For You?

While both vehicles offer a variety of the latest technology and powertrain options, it’s clear that the 2017 Acura NSX brings a level of sophistication that the 2017 Audi R8 simply can’t match. Drivers interested in a riveting powertrain and full suite of luxury interior features but aren’t interested in having to pay extra on the final price tag just for those features will find the 2017 Acura NSX a great match for their daily drive.
